Students who suffer from anxiety score an average of 12 percentage points lower on tests than those with normal anxiety, said Carole Freemole, a CSU counselor.

Test anxiety comes with a wide array of symptoms including: butterflies or knots in the stomach, sweaty palms, difficulty concentrating, loss of appetite or emotional overeating, sleeping problems and difficulty breathing.
