Exam superstitionWatch this thread
I have two that come to mind, which seem to do the job:
1) I can't shave my facial hair in the fortnight leading up to the exams. I then shave the very night that the exam season is over. Haircut should also be short throughout the exam season, though this is less important.
2) The textbook/revision guide of the exam I'm sitting must be off my bookshelf on the day it takes place. It goes straight back on the shelf when I get home.
Other than that I'm normal, I swear...
- I used to wear my lucky football socks for exams, wore them whilst I broke my ankle and I recovered quite quickly so they accompanied me in exams until my mum accidentally threw them out...
- I like wearing clothes relevant to the exam (sounds weird) but for my geography exam I wore a t-shirt with weather on it, and for my GCSE exam about the Olympics, I very nearly turned up in my Olympic volunteering uniform but opted not to in case I got chucked out xD
I used the same pens for GCSE and A'level. They were supposed to be my lucky pens.
If an exam goes well, I'll carry on using that pen for the next exam and so on.
If it goes badly, the pen goes straight in the bin :L
