'Panic Attack' is my topic to discuss today, why? It's because I experienced this panic attack quite often, since the I had my PMR examination, until I enter the medical school! The last panic attack I had, was few days ago, on 21st April. It was my first paper: Physiology Practical Exam. I have studied the subject, but when I entered the laboratory(where we were examined) I went blank, though I answered the doctor with the correct answer, I was not confident at all. I was really mad to myself. Why do I have to be so nervous? Do you ever face situation like that? If you do, how do you overcome it?
Last year, I didn't panic at all! For every single exam! Unfortunately, this year, the most important year of all, I became so panic and went blank when I entered the examination hall. Did I not prepare? Or, did I just want my answers to be perfect? Compared to the Biochemistry practical Exam,which I studied them a night before the exam, I DID NOT panic at all, different to that Physiology, which I already studied them a WEEK before the exam, I went panic...
I identified some differences between this year, and last year final examination. Where, I did not bring any books to the examination hall, which made me remain calm and more focus. I only brought my short notes just for a quick revision. Secondly, I did not listen to any music before taking the exam, instead, I recited some zikrullah. Next, I did not make any heavy conversation or discussion with my friends, it's because, they may, or I, myself may confused ourselves with the points we've had memorize in turns will make us need to search the right answers in the text book.
Thus, I think, for the next paper, I'll only practice the method I've done before. Oh yes, with good preparations too.
If you have any idea, to remain calm, and to avoid panic attack, please do tell me how. ♥
