So to avoid confusion, stress and diffidence - and inculcate confidence the first thing one should tell oneself is- whatever be the result I will face it boldly. In both results, I can make benefit. Then face the test or exam boldly. There will be self confidence.
Another factor which gives confidence is knowledge and preparation. If one knows fully about the way an exam or test or competition is conducted, and keeps himself fully trained and prepared for that one will not have any fear. Hence one will not lose confidence.
Try and see the difference. Best Wishes.
