    No, you do not need help. Its exam stress, I personally also mumble to myself especially if I dont understand a question. Try not to talk too loud else you risk being kicked out of the exam.

    Lool nope dw. They say those who talk to themselves are the smarter ones. Talking to yourself when answering qs makes your brain work harder. More nerve impulses are made to the brain. If someone calls you weird tell them to shuttup. It's natural for people to do that. I do it myself in exams and i don't even realises Lol oh well..if it helps me to be more focused i don't mind

    I talk out loud when trying to solve a difficult problem too! :woo: Something about saying the words helps :yy:

    I guess it's only a problem if it's distracting to others, so try keeping it to a whisper?

    Good luck with your exams

    Not out loud in an exam

    I sometimes almost laugh in exams because all I have is a pen and pencil, so when we have to draw some axis or something everyone has their ruler out and I'm sat their trying to draw straight lines with my pencil as a ruler. The invigilators must think "what the **** is he doing?" And I just find that funny haha

    Just do it quietly and nobody even cares.

    I sat next to this girl in a Maths exam once who muttered numbers under her breath the whole way through. I was ready to throw something at her after about 5 minutes, couldn't concentrate on anything worth a damn and kept remembering her numbers rather than mine.

    You need one of these bad boys.


    Maybe not a Hello Kitty one. I've got a One Piece one and it's immense. Never lose anything again. Thank you Japan.
