    When under pressure

    I am wondering if this sentence is grammatically correct.

    1.She always remained calm when under pressure.
    or do I need to add "when she came under pressure:
    2. She always remained calm when she came under pressure.

    Re: When under pressure

    "When under pressure" is OK. You can omit "when" if you like.

    "To remain calm under pressure" is a common phrase.

    She always remained calm under pressure.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
