Can anyone help me with English Exams, I adore the subject, can do essays really well when I am given the time but when I go into the exam I just cant take it! I was thinking of taking it for AS but after my experience today I dont think I could take the exam. I have ideas but in the exam my mind freezes and I just cant think how to structure it, and as the exam goes on I get more and more paniked thinking about how awful it is and I just cant go on. I eventually just give up basicly and spend the rest of the exam just writing all my thoughts down, which I know is bad because there is no structure. I can do this well when given time but just not in exams!
I'm the same and I don't think there's much that can help. The only advice I can give you is to not place as much importance on it (even though it is important). Have plenty of sleep and plan the essay in the exam before you write it. It might also help if you spend the morning reading up on the subject. If you've just driven in to school after chatting about weekend with your mates, your mind will wonder in the exam.
