Mostly B’s: You seem to have a common level of test anxiety. Remember not to let those anxious moments get the best of you, and if you ever feel your stress levels getting out of whack, talk to trusted advisors and friends about keeping your cool.

Mostly C’s: Test anxiety? What test anxiety?! You have confidence to spare, and as long as you’re doing well on those tests, that’s great. Just don’t let your breezy attitude carry you away if you notice your grades slipping!
