If I take a typing test for a job , and I don’t do my best, should I explain? Details ?

When I am timed, I feel like someone is leaning over my shoulder. I type fine when I just have a due time or date, but I kind of panic when there is a clock. BUT once I get going I get a lot faster. It may just take me a few minutes.

Plus, I was on a laptop in a awkward position... I’m better on desktops, but I didn’t have one.

    You can tell them that, but it will just sound like you're making excuses. My advice is to take a bunch of typing tests online, all of which are timed.

    An explanation won't matter at all. Nobody does their best at those tests and the agency expects people to not perform at their very best. Explaining also won't change your score. Why waste your energy explaining?

    Too bad, you need to work on that because that's a dysfunction no one should have.
