TOPIC: WCA Today!

WCA Today! 6 days 7 minutes ago #237226

Good morning

I have my WCA at 11 today and I am so anxious about it. My stomach is in knots.
I’ve read so many horror stories and I’m frightened!
Could anyone offer me any words of advice or experiences please?
My conditions are anxiety and depression.
Thank you
Jenny

Hi Jenny

I don't know whether you will even see my post. All I can say to you is try and keep calm and don't go in there thinking the assessor is an enemy. Yes you will have read plenty of horror stories, but you tend not to hear about the people who have reasonable assessors. If you don't understand something, say so, and if you want a question repeated, don't be afraid to ask. It's not a test.

I hope it goes well for you.

Thank you! Sorry I should have clarified I’m leaving at 11 but it’s not until 12 - that’s my anxiety getting me all mixed up!
Just been reading through my form to prepare myself
