TIme/Untimed Tests


TIme/Untimed Tests
« on: December 31, 2011, 03:32:11 PM »
There is a huge discrepancy between my timed and untimed tests. With the former, my score falls by roughly 30-40 percent. I have such a difficult time focusing on the test and not the time. I've been trying not to focus on the damn thing but the minute that I bring the silent timer out, panic sets in. Any suggestions?

If I was you I would try to focus on individual questions and stop taking practice tests. Than when you feel more comfortable start taking practice tests again but always do time tests. Tests without time are pretty useless.
