    I walked into the classroom yesterday confident I got around 90% on the test and it turned out I got 54%. Now where did I lose all those marks? I lost almost every single mark on thing I knew very well. I mean I talked to a teacher for half an hour about a topic and understood it very well and then when the test came I circled the answer I must have known was wrong. I lost a bunch of marks on things like these that I knew but for some reason circled the wrong answer. Then I lost some more marks for forgetting to square pi in a calculation. So I got 54% on stuff I know quite well. Very frustrating and confusing. I just keep asking myself what happened. Why did I circle the answers I must have known were wrong? I feel like my subsconscious was punishing me for something. Did something like this happen to anyone else, I really don't want this **** to repeat so any help would be good, thanks.

    Sometimes, a bad day just happens! Maybe try not to worry about it unless it happens again in another test, it seems like you understand everything fine

    This happened to me so you are not the only one. In fact everybody must have experienced a similar situation to yours. Just make sure you do all the past papers that you can.
