Examination is a review of what has been learnt. It provides avenue for feedback and
evaluation for placement, selection and promotion.
Anxiety on the other hand, is a psychological state of restlessness, normally associated with feelings of insecurity, loss of self-worth and inadequacy. During examination, students often experience high level of anxiety even when they know the materials well. Though, every individual requires a minimal dosage of anxiety as a pre-requisite for motivation impetus.
