    So I did my first maths exam recently and when I got the paper I got very nervous, I started sweating and it felt like 40 degrees celsius in the room. It's like my brain got cloudy and I couldn't properly think about questions I would normally do easily. I probably lost at least 6 marks on silly numerical careless errors. Extremely frustrating because I'd done all the past papers (from 2014 back to 2001), few others from another board and most questions in the book. I was hoping to get 100%, I really need an A*. Anyway, this now has me worried for future exams. I feel confident that I know the stuff, but so did I for this last exam. I can't let this **** happen again because if it does A* is pretty much out of the window. I don't know what I'll do if I don't get into uni because I'm scared of exams... anyone got any advice?

    Breathe slowly, compose yourself, think that you're doing the exam paper at home, try act casual. Think that you're going to do well, stay positive !
