    that's a bit harsh. some people have never been fast writers no matter how much they try. why should they be put at a disadvantage?
    Well tough. Practice until you can write sufficiently fast for an exam. Everyone has excuses for why they don't complete the exam or if they don't get their target grade but the excuses are always something other than them not doing enough work for it and they ask for things like extra times to make it easier. Few of my friends are dyslexic and they don't even apply for extra time cause it doesn't affect them, so why should someone with nothing to affect them get an advantage? Lol

    so she asked, do you want to eat, yes or no?
    and i was like MARHAE YES OR NO MARHAE YES OR NO

    So you're speaking from personal experience now are you

    So your excuse of choice is the "no matter why I do I can't write faster"

    Aight ok, lol you can you just don't do enough. Don't sit there in the exam writing out every word like you rewriting the bible then maybe you'll learn to write faster lols

    Either way, your problem, not the exam boards

    OP - you just need to practice papers. Wasting time on one Q does nothing to help you.
    It's easier to gain average marks doing all Qs, than gain perfect marks doing one, and then failing the others by running out of time. Think of it as an increasing curve, the difficulty in gaining full marks (for essays in particular) increase drastically - thus your time is best spent ensuring ALL your Qs are done.
    Figure out, if possible, how much time you have to do each Q and stick to it. Plan each at the start to save time.
    All this applies when you get to uni to if you go.

    Jesus don't cry over it, some people write faster and they finish their exams early and they have an advantage and yet no one complains. Some people write slower. Writing too slow to get your target grade? Practice till your hand drops off instead of feeling sorry for yourself

    It's easy to manage time if you've practiced past papers with timing.
    My personal tactic is that I look at the number of questions I'm given or number of pages and I divide the total time by that.
    That way I know how long I can spend on each question/page.
    Honestly, you should see what works for you.

    SEE? I've CONTRIBUTED to your cause. And possibly helped you out immensely.

    My knowledge is completely fine when it comes to exams and I usually know and understand most of the content + context that they're asking about, time management however....I am completely s*** at it!

    It's either that I write too much for one question (to make sure that I nailed it) but it just results in me not having enough time to do the rest of the questions on the paper, or it's that I get nervous over the time that I have left during the exam, which my nervousness makes me panic then my mind just goes into one heap of madness and results in me writing slower.

    I've always had this problem ever since my GCSE's - no matter how much I do past papers, it's really rare for myself to finish my exams, and I'm scared that it would result in me getting bad grades because I've worked so hard for my AS this year so I want to get the grades that I fully deserve...

    Any advice?
    Try going to the learning support department at your school- they might be able to give you some advice or get you 25% extra time- I have extra time partly because I have the exact same issue as you!! Good luck! x

    Now you gonna have everyone applying for extra time because of one comment. You won't be getting extra time unless you've got extenuating circumstances like actual dyslexia that affects how quickly you can work through an exam paper. You had months to work on your time management and if you still haven't sorted it then well tough really, keep doing past papers and maybe it'll help for the last few exams
    Just FYI, there's a girl at my school who's not dyslexic but writes r e a l l y slowly and she has Extra Time.

    You're emphasising how extreme it is then fair enough. But if people run out of time just cause they spend too long on one question its their fault lmao
