    At school I had an Rs exam and I couldn't see the time properly and was wasting so much time on the six marker because it was difficult. She then said 5 minutes left and I had another 6 and 12 mark question to do. Still got full marks in the exam

    I work well under pressure rather than having all the time in the world.

    I gave up straight away. then i had a random burst of motivation and wrote any rubbish down. I cried after that exam.
    I was so close to the next boundary as well so i believe it did cost me my grade

    Did the retake and got full ums though

    OMG YES I HAVE A STORY FOR THIS

    okay basically it was the chemistry AS exam and we were just getting started right
    we read through the instructions and the exam begins and already, we see the invigilators swatting at something but didn't really think anything of it.

    Then we realise it's a ****ing flying spider mosquito thing yeah and i start freaking my ****

    it then flies to the end of the room so i was like okay, it's not near me i'll just write my name and stuff and i lift my head up and IT WAS RIGHT INFRONT OF MY FACE like it was basically ON MY FACE

    obviously i table flip, throw my **** all over the place, and run across the room screaming

    everyone is DYING but too scared to laugh in case they get disqualified (my friend didn't care she was on the floor haha)

    the invigilator kills it (stepped on it, it was on the floor right next to my desk) and then bends down to pick my glasses up, but i thought she was picking the bug up and jumped again when she tried to hand it over haha

    she goes "atleast it got rid of your exam nerves haha" -_-

    i was red and shaking the rest of that exam haha it was so scary but funny af after :lol:

    I was completely unprepared for my AS history exam, despite the fact that I'm usually a straight A student (I just hadn't started revising early enough and when I got round to it, nothing would stay in my head). I spent the whole exam trying to write something coherent, making it up as I went along, but with no dates or facts to back it up. I was ****ing myself the whole way through.

    I went home afterwards and just broke down, thinking about how disappointed my teacher was going to be (he was my favourite teacher too, so I felt so guilty). My little brother came home from school and found me crying inconsolably on the bathroom floor....

    At the beginning of my maths I wrote my candidate number incorrectly as a 0 instead of a 1 so I tried to put the 1 in the same box and panicked so I stupidly asked the invidgulator "does this look like a 1??? or a 6??? or a 10???" and she grabbed my paper and walked to the front and shouted "this lady over there wrote her number wrong" and they had to tell the exam board. Everyone turned to stare at me and I was surrounded by set 1s lmaooooo me

    Someone pissed themselves in the exam after this cruel invigilator refused to let him go to the toilet. The guy who pissed himself was crying and writing at the same time and his yellow piss was slowly making its way over to where me and a few others were sitting, so I had one eye on my exam and one eye on this deadly piss streak edging towards me
