Taking exams can be an anxious and difficult time in your life. But by using mind training exercises, you can easily increase your exam scores in a very short space of time. By harnessing your subconscious mind power, your ability to remember any piece of information, no matter how obscure or how difficult it may seem will naturally increase.
Exams seem so incredibly difficult for some because when you take them you are always under a severe time restriction. Restrictions create and increase stress, and stress is the worse possible thing for both learning and recallation of learned knowledge. The thing to do is to eliminate the stress, so the information you need to know is easily recalled.
This can be easily achieved by using simple, mind training exercises. The reason stress is felt is because you are consciously aware of the time restrictions of the exam, resulting in you imagining the worst possible outcome, creating even more stress. This builds a never ending loop of frustration with seemingly no escape.
But what if a friend told you that you only had five minutes to make them a cup of coffee? What about fifteen minutes to wash an item of clothing? Why would these tasks appear to be so simple to you? Because you know, really and truly know that you are capable of doing these things.
After you have convinced your subconscious mind that remembering information on an exam or a test is as easy as saying A B C, then you will experience a natural flow of information and knowledge into your conscious awareness, resulting in exam or test success.
Think of positive statements that you would use to describe an exam taking "superstar". Then simply state them in the first person, and in the present tense. Here are some examples to get you started:
I have a fantastic memory. I remember things easily. I am always relaxed during exams. I am always the first one to finish my exam. I always score high in my exams. Taking exams is easy and natural for me. Scoring high on exams is easy and natural for me.
Practice these statements until they seem natural to you. When you repeat these affirmations to yourself, try to be as relaxed and as sleepy as possible. In this relaxed, sleepy state which is close to drifting off into a dreamy slumber, your subconscious mind is open and receptive to suggestions. The ideal time to practice this is just before you fall asleep at night. By repeating these statements as you drift off to sleep, your subconscious mind will be powerfully reprogrammed.
It's important to have strong feelings of gratitude and appreciation as you state your affirmations, say them as if they are already true. This may feel quite odd at first, especially if you aren't very good at taking exams right now, but it does get easier with practice. With sufficient consistency, strong emotions and saying these while you are in that sleepy, drowsy state, your exam scores will dramatically improve in a very short amount of time.
