    Did it affect your grades?

    I know quite a few people who had the same attitude and came away with really good grades. It's maddening :l
    Definitely effected my grades sadly. Thank god for re-sits. The one exam that I actually tried to revise for I ended up doing worst in though for some reason.

    I don't know why I act like this though... I just always have. If I look really far back into my childhood I guess one reason could be the fact that if there was an upcoming exam or test, my teachers wouldn't tell me about it, because i'd start to panic and get upset... So I never have revised. Can't really think of any other reason than this.

    I know some people who could easily get full marks in exams with minimal effort, but they put crazy amount of effort in anyway.

    During exams I constantly go through this cycle:

    1)Procrastinate
    2)Feel guilty
    3)An hours work

    Rinse and repeat ^.^

    I panic/ am very stressy and moody leading up to and during the first two or three exams, with manic cramming sessions when I can fit them in.

    And then I burn out and fall into a blissful state of not caring whatsoever and procrastinate the whole time.
    Seems to work.

    It depends how close to the exam I am. A couple of days before I am really tense, and will sit there all motivated learning. Then the day before the exam and start procrastinating and have the opinion that I'll pass without problems, then an hour or 2 before the exam I start getting queasy and nervous :woo:

    really stressed out and moody or procrastination and being stupidly confident

    atm, im the stressed out half of me. i have a psych mock in like 2 hours and i came on here in my five minutes break from the five hour emergency revision session.

    at GCSEs i had a physics exam on my 16th birthday, which pissed me off so much so even my family knew not to talk to me in the morning.

    well, i'd best be off or i will fail epicly, and my psych teacher is putting our results up on the notice board for everyone to see. oh lord help me.
