    Well after each exam, I try to remember each question, write them down, get each answer, mark them, and predict what I got in the exam. Then I go to the examiners' report, and see what the grade boundaries are. If I get a question wrong. I learn the whole question, learn the answer, and repeatedly test myself. God I am such a sad person, It's laughable!

    What do you guys do after each exam?

    Just forget about it and look forward to the next one?

    I remember the odd question and look it up in a revision guide but that's about it. You're not sad - you're just worrying! Think about it - you're better off revising for your next exam!

    After I come out of the exam I discuss the questions and answers with my firnds for a couple of hour but then I leave it
    I generally have a good idea of about what grade I have got, so I don't bother with mark schemes etc.
    Although for the maths exam(AQA or OCR can't remember)I did really badly and went to see my maths teachers and got her to go through the whole test with me.

    Just relax and talk about it with you r mates after so you can get a feel for how hard everyone else found it and a general concensus on the correct answer. Then just revise for the next one there is nothing you can do to change the past but you can change the future.

    After exams are finished take advantage of the summer, enjoy yourself, you can't change your grades then so son't worry about them.

    You're obviously very anxious about results and such. After an exam, I think of food. Lol, I don't eat before any exam [I know, it's unhealthy blah blah but I can't bring myself to eating before an exam] so all I think about is food. I prefer not to think about an exam once I've done it. I've done it once, why do it again? And of course there's always the fact that I come out of an exam feeling awful so it takes up too much of my energy thinking about it. Unnecessary. If, however, you like doing this and it reassures you in some way, then keep going...I do think that you should be concentrating on future exams more rather than dwelling on old ones.

    I hate discussing questions straight after the exam! lol It seems that all my friends get everything right and I am always unsure. I do remember the odd question - like some on the maths paper that I was particularly stuck on. Otherwise I try to forget all about the exam. Theres nothing you can do once time is up - except wait for your results. Sometimes its best not to look and see if you've got things right or not so that you dont get panicked.

    But everyone has three own ways and attitudes towards exams - and if you find that helps then thats good.

    yeah that is quite sad. once ur exam is done its done and theres not much you can do about it so why stress yourself out over what you should have put?!

    if necessary re-sit the thing, generally when you come out the exam room you know ruffly how well youve done.

    I just discussed the exam with my friends and teachers to see how everyone else found it and how well I probably did. I did much the same this year for ASs, except I've also found out all the January 2005 grade boundaries and tried to guess what I think I got based on average marks throughout the year and reading mark schemes.

    Sometimes they boundaries are higher in January though, as there are often a lot of re-sit candidates.
