Learn how to manage stress and anxiety, tackle procrastination, build resilience, cope with uncertainty and more in these helpful online webinars run by RMIT's expert counsellors.

Mastering Assessment Anxiety

What:

Assessments and exams are one of the many challenges of university life and although it is natural to feel some anxiety beforehand -  it is when that anxiety causes you distress and impairs your performance that you might start to worry about it. You might experience panic/overwhelm, find it hard to breathe or think, go blank and have trouble remembering things you have revised thoroughly (but remember as soon as it is submitted) and notice yourself worrying constantly about it. 

Mastering Assessment Anxiety is designed to equip you with ways to manage your anxiety so that it no longer gets in the way of success. If you have ever experienced extreme distress before or during an assessment or exam and have struggled to do well in them as a result, this webinar is designed to help you.
