    I find this really weird.
    Last year (year 10), I came out of my chemistry and philosophy exams thinking I had failed s bad. Then I came out of the RS Ethics exam thinking i had done well...
    I got an A In chemistry and A* In Philosophy but a B in ethics.
    Is it just me that feels like whenever I have done badly in an exam I always get a better result????

    Usually I'll do an exam then come out, and as soon as I'm out the room I forget EVERYTHING from the exam, so it's difficult for me to judge how I did. One thing I annoyingly do though, is remember questions I know I got wrong, then end up thinking the entire exam was a disaster
