    just remember its not the end of the world if it goes badly.
    You can always retake. Especially for like GCSES they dont mean that much when you get older aslong as you pass the ones to mainly worry about is Alevels if you want to get into Uni but even then you can always retake and you can only do your best soo it will all be fine
    This is my last opportunity to resit these exams as they are the old spec :P so thats why I'm panicking haha.

    Thanks all of you, seriously. I am such a panicker, I felt stupid starting this thread tho. But it turns out you've all helped me. I'll let you know how i feel after my exam tomorrow. I'm thinking positive thoughts all of today, and I'm having a nice meal out and then I'll go to bed at a decent time Thank you

    panic today and just cry it all out of your system
    That way there's no tears left for tomorrow and you can focus on telling everyone that you've been crying as opposed to talking about the exam:yep:

    bonne chance!:woo:

    Have an energy drink before the exam. I always have one 20 mins before every exam and it works just fine.

    We are told we aren't allowed to bring any mints/chewing gum/ food. Just water. Cos apparently we might "cheat" by writing on the packaging of the food or on the actual food itself haha.
    Well i'm not to sure if we are still allowed so i stick one in a tissue and kind of sneakily eat it?

    Hi Josieee....Sitting an exam is a moment in time..during that time you need to be calm. Your mind has all the information you have learned stored and ready to be used. Allowing your mind to relax enables that stored information to be accessed easily. When you sit down in the exam room take a minute to breath slowly, pausing briefly before you exhale. Do this 6 or seven times and repeat during the exam when you are finding things difficult. This will calm and relax you and bring your thinking into the moment.
    I hope this helps.
