Performance anxiety theory exam
With performance anxiety you have a fear of not being able to do something. Passing your theory exam for example. Everyone feels the pressure to perform great when you have an exam. Only when you have performance anxiety, this pressure can get in your way. Sometimes this pressure can cripple you and make it so that you suddenly forget everything.
Performance anxiety usually develops because of a negative experience or because you set the bar so high that you can barely meet it. Even if you have studied so well, a few days before the exam, the tension starts to rise and the moment you have to take the exam it has reached its highest and you completely shut down.
Tips for performance anxiety
1. Studying the theory
Of course you start with studying the theory. If you do not know the theory, then you will never pass the CBR theory exam (with or without performance anxiety). Do not get your information from a lot of different places, but learn from one good place. Luckily, iTheorie is the right place to prepare well for your theory exam.

3. Individual theory exam
Book an individual theory exam at the CBR. Besides extra time, you will also get an employee appointed to you, who helps you during the theory exam.
