What to do about test nerves
For the theory and practical tests, a bit of nervousness can help your performance. Any actor or performer, or anyone in a high-stress job, will tell you that some amount of adrenaline helps them achieve good results.
Being too laid-back or blasé could mean you may appear to be over-confident, and this will not impress the examiner.
Too much nervousness, however, will lead to the 'fright or flight' reaction, a known physiological reaction, a legacy that reminds us humans are also animals. This can lead to among other things, sweaty palms, increased heart-rate, loss of concentration, physical discomfort and a host of other symptoms. These are not helpful.
