This is why, when you have put a lot of work into something you strongly desire to get it over with and score the highest mark possible. However, there are ways of controling these nerves and, although unfortunately a button that says "REMOVE NERVES" is yet to exist, we can overcome the nerves and, instead of ignoring them, use them in our favour.
Nerves are often described as a negative feeling that people suffer when they're about to be submitted to situations where they are forced to be under pressure. However, the way I see it, when we feel nervous it is our body that makes us be on guard, we know something hard is coming, so the body makes us nervous so that we are prepared. Once we have acknowledged this, we students should, instead of letting the nerves control us, control the nerves ourselves and turn them into motivation. Lets say that before that difficult history test with that teacher you highly disapprove of, instead feeling the pressure of not knowing how well you are going to do in the test, you are able to change it into motivation; Change the.."Oh I am so nervous...Dont know what Im going to do!" to a ...."I can do this! I am going to demonstrate to the teacher and my family how even though this teacher and me can't stand eachother, I have a spirit of self-sacrifice and that I can get a 10! WOOOOOOHOOOOO!!!".
