There is a way out. She would benefit from psychological intervention. Please consult a competent psychologist for psychotherapy. Once she realizes that everything she is anxious about( studies and exams) is not really as important as she thinks, she will be able to alter the way she is thinking and feeling. Just keep one thing in mind during the process. Psychological intervention can help and you should not quit till you find that professional with whom your daughter feels comfortable and understood. Good Luck.
