London: Sitting in exams may often turn out to be nerve-wracking, however, being anxious beforehand can boost your grades, a new study has found.Researchers have found that being anxious only has a negative impact on results if a child`s memory is poor.However, if a young person has a good memory, his tendency to feel anxious is linked with getting better mark, the `BBC News` reported.The research assessed 96 children aged 12 to 14 in memory and anxiety tests. A questionnaire established how anxious the children usually felt, and the results were measured against their ability to perform computerised tests involving "complex" or working-memory skills."We found that for individuals with low working-memory capacity, increases in (a tendency towards) anxiety were related to decreases in cognitive test performance," researchers said.
