    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
    What would they have done if you didn't have the correct socks before an exam...

    You go in, do the paper and leave. If you've prepared then you shouldn't be worried or anything.

    The only thing I think about is who will come late to the exam, just because it's fun to guess.

    I used to panic like made when I was in the same room as everyone else purely because everyone else panicked but now I go on my own I just tell myself that I've done ok in mocks, I've revised hard and I know my stuff just read the questions and take my time ☺️

    1. I start to have a mental breakdown
    2. I listen to my heart beating insanely fast
    3. Feel nauseous
    4. Worry about the future, and how no good uni, will offer me a place
    5. Run through everything related to the exam, and if I forget, I pull out my bundle of notes and flick through them, like a freak
    6. I pray, and explain to God, how much of a good person I think I am... And how I'd be grateful if I could pass with good marks.

    I hope I'm not involved in those invigilator battleships game.
    Which means no invigilator standing next to me.

    I always feel relaxed. It's just an exam.

    I listen to Lux Aeterna from Reqiuem for a Dream on repeat.

    There's very little emotion involved for me. If I feel annoyed at the end then I know I've failed because I haven't revised enough. If I feel happy at the end then I know I've probably failed because it wasn't meant to be so easy. Mostly I'm just relieved it's over and I can get on with my actual life.

    I saw Majmuh put a song,
    This is the one I usually sing in my head as I head to school on exam day



    the lyrics are PERFECT,
    "I'm gonna be the very best, all I got to do IS BELIEVE IN ME"

    Yeah that's pretty damn good,
    but this is the one for exams for me

    EDIT:
    THIS WAS MY 500th post,
    I think that's a pretty cool milestone, even if it's not many, a milestone nonetheless

    Regret, panicking about panicking, the will-power to suppress tears, what is everyone else writing etc. I get seriously bad anxiety before exams and it has affected my performance in recent examinations

    Fold up a bit of paper and stick it under the wobbly leg.
    What paper? You're not allowed to bring anything into the exam room apart from pens and water.

    I think you tell the invigilators and they have stuff they can put under the table to stop it wobbling, that's what happened when we had mocks earlier this year

    If I have revised well in advance or just feel confident I know ill do well then Im just relaxed and calm, have a laugh with mates. If ive crammed the night/days before then Ill be constantly going over answers in my head and worry that ive forget one or get them muddled up

    Lesson to be learnt here :closedeyes:

    'Lol at everyone stressing.'
    Although anecdotal, I often find that those who have a valid reason to brag and boast are usually the ones who do not brag and boast.
