Realising your calculator was in radians for the whole time when it should've been in degrees.

Ooh that is bad.
Turning the page and realising you should have revised that topic harder.
Everything you learnt hasn't gone in (worst feeling ever!)

The dreaded:
'Pens down' when you're about half way through.

Opening the paper and thinking... ****, can't do this. Moving on to the next question and thinking... ****, can't remember how to do this either. Then the question you can finally do, you make an error at the beginning, so have to do it all again. Only to get it wrong again because you tried to do it quickly. An hour and 15 minutes into the exam and you have no marks.

All this on an exam that I went in genuinely thinking I should be able to get 90%+

Getting to the end of the Paper and realising the final, most marks, questions are on a topic you have never learnt.

I had to sit next to a guy with horrendous body odour once. Being forced to breathe in someone's toxic armpit fumes for two hours when you're trying to concentrate on a science exam is not fun.

Sitting behind two year 11's. One, the girl, taps her shoes at an inhumanly fast rate. The other, the boy, decides that when he has finished 20 minutes early on his foundation teired paper, he will play his chest and the chair like bongo drums.

Wow.

Not being able to read your own writing in maths exams - 6 looks like 0 or vice versa :facepalm:
