Test Anxiety and the Passage of Time
Sarason, Irwin G.; Stoops, Rick
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 46, 1, 102-9, Feb 78

Evidence is presented supporting the hypothesis that highly anxious persons under stress experience cognitive interference and preoccupation that makes time pass slowly and results in poor performance.
