The most important takeaways of the short study:

  •  Almost 9 out of 10 Germans have had exam nerves at one time or another; almost two thirds of them at school and/or university.
  • Only 14.1% have ever sought help in combatting their exam nerves - although the effects of anxiety can be serious.
  • Almost half of those affected do not feel that their exam nerves are taken seriously.
  • For more than a half, excessive self-expectations are a major reason for their exam nerves.
