    You can get someone else to write for you. A helper. That's what my friend did. You just say what you want to written down and they'll write it for you.

    Or try to write with your other hand? Mouth? Toes?

    Tell your school as soon as possible, one of my mum's many jobs at her old school was to type what students with broken wrists or whatever dictated in the exam, they could set that up for you or give you a laptop to type things up yourself with your good hand (albeit slowly).

    What are your subjects?

    Make sure you get a scribe, as your doing maths it would obviously not be a good idea to do it on a computer, don't worry it's fine you can still get the grades you deserve.

    Those subjects are not too bad at all. Very little writing involved and I imagine a scribe would be easy to get those numbers on the page. Just be glad you are not taking essay subjects.

    I assume it's the hand you write with? Well this happened to me once and i got an assistant to help me with writing, but i guess you could have a laptop, extra time, help, special consideration. There's lots of options, just make sure you tell your school's exam officer as soon as possible to make sure you get the best possible opportunity to show your ability.

    I got a computer when I got tendonitis in my wrist ahead of summer exams... Or, as mentioned, you can get a scribe. It's not a disaster - have a word with your examinations officer. You won't be the only one who's ever broken their wrist before exams. I'm sure there's an easy solution if you just enquire.
