Research on exam preparation usually aims to prepare students technically for specific language exams. However, research on the psychological characteristics of learners and the role of concepts like emotions, beliefs and anxiety in exam preparation can offer distinct and valuable insights. This talk centres on IELTS exam takers in China, and demonstrates how equipping students technically may not help with issues of stress and anxiety. Based on a meta-analysis, we argue that teachers and students would also benefit from knowledge of the more human side of test-taking and we offer some practical, research-informed recommendations for the exam classroom.
