    Keep it up everybody!!~~~

    after I had my first exam I started to feel much better and less nervous

    you'll get used to it~~!!!!

    btw please DO NOT send me any msg to me asking me to give hints since I'm taking the exams earlier than most people, I have received tons of PMs asking me for this!! Some even attempt to bribe me with money. This isn't fair and stop PMing me for this. (PMs of encouragements are of course welcome )

    You also have to calculate the time she spent reading and annotating the text so it'll be more like less that 10 mins...

    ouch 21 sides, your arm must really kill now!! i hope your hand can keep up with your brain over the next few weeks!!
    I have to say english may be the easiest exam, but then the first exam is always the worst.
    Was just wondering is there anyone out there for whom the IB exams are the first official exams that they have taken? and how did you find it? (I realise that the government in the UK is just a little exam crazy setting exams for their darling youths every four years, so i think that i'm a too relaxed about another set- any good tips on getting me to pannick so that i realise that the exams have started?!)
