You're late for an exam that is in a hall full of people, everybody is already sat down and you have to walk in late.

I'm concerned that you're more worried about what people will think of you than worrying about the exam.

In addition to the options in your poll, I'd feel quite embarrassed especially if everyone turns to look at you and you're sat right at the front :/

But I get embarrassed so easily, so maybe that's just me

This happened to me at GCSE, I lived about 10 mins from the school and left my house 45 mins early. However the exam started an hour earlier than I thought oops. Had to go to main reception and have the deputy head walk me in to the exam hall, didn't get any extra time but thankfully was able to sit the exam. Didn't really bother what anyone thought as at the time I was just scolding myself in my mind for being such a tit :P

It's not that bad people are going to be more concerned about what's on the paper.

happened to me with one of my GCSEs.

walked in about a minute after it had started... just dumped my stuff, sat down at my desk and did the exam. Didn't bother me at all but tbh I was so focused on needing to get to my seat that I didn't take any notice of anyone else.

They'll look for a second or will be talking to their friends - honestly, don't worry, it didnt help as I had pretty bad anxiety..

And the examiners will be handing out the papers at this point as well, many people walk in at this time.

seriously, don't fret, and being on time will make you feel at ease as well

you're not allowed to talk and the papers would already be out haha...

If you keep think it it will happen you'll just bog yourself down with unnecessary stress, really, don't worry! Your exam should be your main worry, not everybody else's interest in who's walked in
