During the schooling of my children, my opinion was that only the students who are not well prepared for an exam have jitters. Though, I did not rule out a small dose of excitement, which, in my opinion, could be stimulating. That’s why I just followed their course of learning, the atmosphere in the house was always relaxed, and just before the exam I would say to my children:
“Just concentrate on the task, slowly, no hurry, You can do what you done. Mom loves you with both good and bad results. “
As they often participated in school competitions, each in their own field, I am would ad:
"It is a great success that you came to this level, there is no reason to to be disturbed“
I would always repeat the same words, because I really thought so, and later they would with me, later. On leaving, they would begin on their own:
"Mom loves me ...."
Later, when I started teaching, I realized that well-learned material is important to reduce the fear of exams, but for some children that is not enough and that there are many factors that influence the over-anxiousness or lack of self-confidence. Children often have a fear of betraying the expectations of their parents, which are sometimes unrealistic.Source: Blic online
