How To Hack A Standardized Test For A Dyslexic?
(This is my first post so I'm unfamiliar with the posting etiquite around here fyi)
I am about to graduate physical therapy school and to obtain a license I have to take an exam. This exam is a classic standardized test. I have always done poorly on standardized tests, are there any supplements/strategies that would be advantageous to help do well on this test?
-250 questions (all multiple choice)
-questions in 50 question blocks
-15 minute break after first 100 questions
-no food or liquid during the test
cliff notes on myself:
-I've always been a 'show up and get Bs student' or a 'apply myself and get As student.'
-I've always been a natural at hands on or visual learning and always scored near below average when it came to standardized test (all of them, from grade school through grad school.)
-Assumed I was just a 'bad reader' until learning more about the learning process. I now understand that is not necessarily the case.
-Never even considered dyslexia until I realized i didnt even know what it was, learned about, turns out I have dyslexic characteristics (adult diagnosis, so hard to call it anything else as far as I'm aware)
-eat clean, sleep lots
- in general I have optimized every area of lifestyle choice regarding food/ exercise/ rest (B.S. in Exercise Physiology), so my question is soley about 'smart supplements' which I have NEVER even played around with. I am a total noob in this area.
Final question: Based on the information I have provided, are there any supplements that can help me perform better on a test that is in this type of format? If so what do you reccommend and why? Any other dyslexic people out there have any strategies/study habits??
TLDR: I'm dyslexic and terrible at standardized test, but I have to take a really important one soon. Are there any smart supplements that can enhance my performance in regard to reading comprehension, working memory, recall, etc?
Thank you in advance for any input
