Title: Occupational Therapy Exam

How to Reduce NBCOT Test Anxiety
Tips To Help Reduce NBCOT Test Anxiety
  • Feeling anxious prior to taking an exam is
    common. However, some individuals may have more
    difficulty managing test anxiety than others.
    Test anxiety may occur before, during, or even
    after a test. Reviewing for the NBCOT exam is
    challenging and requires a lot of time and
    dedication. Knowing this may become overwhelming
    for some. If you find yourself feeling
    apprehensive before the NBCOT exam, follow these
    6 tips to help reduce test anxiety
  • Make a study schedule
  • Reduce Distractions
  • Ask questions
  • Eat healthy
  • Exercise
  • Meditate

How To Make a Study Schedule
Preparing for the occupational therapy exam is
not a question. You must prepare in order to
succeed. However, before you take out all your
review books and start studying, it is a good
idea to develop a study plan first. Take the
time to map out which chapters you will cover
each day. This will help reduce your anxiety by
allowing you to keep your studying organized. If
you anticipate yourself needing more time on
specific practice areas, give yourself a day or
two extra between chapters. This strategy will
eliminate the feeling of being rushed.
How To Reduce Distractions
Another way to reduce test anxiety for the
NBCOT exam is to study in a quiet area.
Choosing to study in a coffee shop or somewhere
public may set you up for failure. There is
often a lot of noise and people around in these
settings which may make you easily distracted. In
order to find a quiet study environment, it is
recommended to go to a local library or find a
quiet area in your home.
Prometrics offers noise cancellation head phones
for you to wear during the NBCOT exam. This
helps to eliminate sounds in the room and reduce
any interruptions.
Ask Any Question
The NBCOT exam is a comprehensive exam which
requires you to make clinical decisions across a
wide scope of practice areas. Sometimes, your
review books and practice tests do not paint the
full picture in explaining a key concept.
Therefore, it is a good idea to ask an
occupational therapy colleague or expert for help
or advice. Tutors for the NBCOT exam offer great
advice and are there to offer you any assistance
you may need in order to set you up for success
in passing the NBCOT exam.
Eat healthy and Do Exercise
Did you know that your diet and eating habits
can cause anxiety? Eating healthy is pertinent
to success when preparing for the NBCOT exam.
Eating fried or junk foods while preparing for
the NBCOT exam can have a negative effect on
your memory. If you experience brain fog and
inability to concentrate, you may want to pay
closer attention to your diet. Eating a
well-balanced meal of protein, whole grains, and
vegetables can significantly help in retaining
information and concentration. Snack on fresh
fruits and stay hydrated by drinking lots of
water. These are all crucial for passing your
boards and becoming an occupational
therapist. Being physically active is another
important factor towards reducing test anxiety.
It is a good idea to take a study break to
incorporate some type of exercise in your day.
This can include walking for 30 minutes,
practicing yoga, or strength training. Exercise
is a good way to retain information.

You Should Meditate
One of the best ways to reduce test anxiety
leading up to the NBCOT exam is through
meditation. Even if you do not know how to
meditate or feel it is not for you, try to
incorporate meditation into your daily routine.
Whether you meditate first thing in the morning
or during study breaks, meditating can help calm
your nerves. Try closing your eyes and take deep
breaths in and out. If you feel you cannot
meditate on your own, try downloading a
meditation app or looking up guided meditations
online. Mentally preparing yourself for the
NBCOT exam is the key to succeeding. You must
have a healthy mind and be able to clear all
negative thoughts in order to pass the NBCOT
exam. PassTheOT offers an online prep course for
