Test anxiety is mainly caused by:
- professors testing on material not covered in class.
- an extreme focus on grades.
- physiological problems.
- insufficient preparation.

If you do not study the correct material and/or do not completely understand what you study, you will have a difficult time answering test questions correctly.

This doubt may carry over into your future testing situations, increasing to the degree you consider yourself incapable of taking tests – in all or selected classes.|
