    Once I'm in the hall I start to see through the paper. People probably think I'm stupid looking at it the way I do.

    Anyone else do this?

    "Right, Ché, remember...
    You've got this.
    In Jesus name, may you bless me in that subject X doesn't come up - AMEN.

    Right, where is my seat?
    Is this pencil going to sharper enough?
    Has my pen got maximum and endless ink?
    OMG, I can see the first question - I know this, yes! OR... A silence until I start the paper!"

    This normally ends with a huge exhalation with loads of noise, and then I'm zoned and I don't even hear anyone or anything...

    Crazy but A-Levels has been crazy in an examination, no lies! :lol:D

    I think 'God, I may not be the most religious person, I lie and all that but please, if you make this easier for me then I will try and be religious for a week, 2 weeks tops'

    And then when the time starts, I start to think what would happen when I fail, wasting 5-8 mins of the test (I actually wasted 20 mins in my history assessment for playing with an eraser.). And then by the end of the test, I suddenly know the answers for most of the questions and I slam my head on the table repeatedly, thinking 'dang it, it was X not Y. Dang it!'

    Yes, me!! But when I can't see through it, I try to think of what type of questions there will be etc. ^^ I guess it's just a little preparation.

    Good idea but we aren't allowed to touch the paper before they tell us to do so... :/ (we get penalised if we attempt to lift it or even move it.).

    Oh, lucky you! My surname starts with the letter A, so my seat's always in the front of the exam hall, near the examiners, haha (I'm also the first person to enter the exam hall. Quite stressing). I don't know why I always try to see through the question paper - not like it's going to change anything (you either know your stuff or don't), but oh well... I guess I like anticipating!

    You'll probably just have that question at the back of your mind and thinking about what the answer could be. I suppose it gives you a longer time to think.

    My mind goes completely blank about an hour before and stays that way until I see the questions. It's frustrating but also a relief
