    Dead silence in my head. I just control my heartbeat because it starts racing. Sweating not excessively though. Just want to get it over and done with.

    If I'm not ready for the exam then I'm panicking.

    I don't feel anything. Just sit down, do the paper, leave. Not much emotion involved there tbf. If I did feel anything or get nervous then I probably failed it badly. Luckily that doesn't happen much.

    As the title suggests I would love to know what thoughts run through people's minds before doing an exam.I find I just panic ,have negative thoughts and think I've failed already

    Absolutely nothing. I'm nervous but I just tend to sit there looking into the distance. You've done everything you're going to do by that stage, accept that, and just wait for the show to start.

    The night before an exam I am a wreck though, cant sleep because I'm tempted to stay up for an extra hour to prepare something. End up tossing and turning and getting 2 hours sleep most of the time. Took my A-Level Physics exam without having got any sleep :eek:

    'Wobbly table again!'

    Honestly, every time in an exam I get the wobbly table.

    Either: 'I hope these hay fever tablets work because I sure as hell don't have a tissue on me' or 'my stomach's going to rumble'.
    Weirdly I am more worried about these things than the actual exam itself

    Fold up a bit of paper and stick it under the wobbly leg.

    In Year 10/11 when I had exams I always had a mad panic about what socks I was wearing. Our teachers were complete nazis about wearing plain black socks and they always check them when you go into exams

    I end up trying to run through the entire course in my head, which just leads to me getting more stressed than I already was when I can't remember everything :confused:

    It varies. Sometimes I've revised so much that my head just feels like it's filled to capacity. Other times I go in with a pretty clear mind. I normally like to try to steady my heart and breathing rate, sometimes I psyche myself up in my head ("ok, I'm gonna ace this! Here we go! I got this''), pray, tell myself to concentrate and not make silly mistakes...
