    "Oh ****, this is it, the moment of truth. Why oh why didn't I prepare more for this. All those days spent lazing around could have been spent revising, why do I never learn. I know nothing!" Coupled with a sense of impending doom naturally.

    I start to get excited (I know, strange) It's like that feeling of excitement/nervousness. Then I think:
    "Ok lemme stop smiling now before someone sees me and thinks I'm trying to communicate"
    "Wow, will they stop talking and let us start"
    "Let me make sure I'm comfy" *Adjusts my position on the chair* *Accidentally makes loud noise* - "Oopsy"

    Does anyone think the same so I know I'm not crazy? Haha

    It goes in two steps:

    1) Before going to bed (Unless you do an all-nighter) I feel like I know everything. (#Happy, #Confident, #CallMeGoogle)
    2) Waking Up (Or on the way to school if you didn't sleep) - Hmm, maybe I should read other some notes just to make sure...
    3) Walking into exam room - Brain begins to die.
    4) Exam starts - Name? Exam Centre? What is this, what is my name? Where am I?
    5) Fail, cry, be sad.

    I'm going to fail! I forget absolutely everything about 10 minutes before the exam and panic. But i start to remember things about 5 minutes after the exam starts.

    I used to panic a lot, then I was given some advice by my dad! He told me that he'd read somewhere the best thing to do, is almost create a little novelty situation in your head: so imagine you've already sat down, and the invidiulator has said you can start, you turn over the first page, and the questions are perfect. You know all the answers with ease, and feel extremely confident in the exam.
    as much as you right now l may not believe that's how things will turn out, it puts you in a good mind set, and subconsciously, it means your brain is already beginning to think of answers to some plausible questions, so there's actually more chance of it happening!
    I laughed at my dad when he first told me, cause I thought he sounded absurd, but I tried it anyway, and it worked! I first did this for my UKCAT exam, and then continued doing it for all my AS and A2 exams, and now, i actually don't really get very nervous anymore!

    Usually completely random stuff like "omg these chairs are so uncomfortable I don't know how to sit"
    "haha that invigilator made a bad fashion choice today"
    "I wonder what's in the fridge for lunch.."
    "Can we just start already?"

    "Can't wait for nap time. Can't wait for food time. Just get through this then you can have both. Do we have a deal? Good. And don't sneeze really loudly. Oh bum I can't remember that thing...no it's fine, you'll remember it if you meditate. Wait what? You can't meditate now, you're about to go into the exam hall! (Since when do you even meditate...?) Oh brill now I have to be silent and it all gets very lonely and depressing. I just want love. That's all we need. How bad will it be if I hug someone- I mean we haven't even sat down yet. Omg what am i even doing, where's my seat. I hate these desks. Why can't we have bigger desks. And comfy seats. A sofa. With pizza. Whoa, concentrate. On what? It hasn't started yet. What is the invigilator wearing!? NOOO why is she wearing big clunky boots? She's going to be so loud, pacing around in those. Oh no what if I punch her in the face...not good. We should be tolerant of each other. Good people have tolerance. I strive to be a better person. As we all should. I am at peace with myself and my surroundings. Okay now I'm ready...but it's too late to get gum. Get over it. Now shut up, internal dialogue, we're about to do lots of horrible sad things."
