    I didn't do the exam but what really pisses me off is when people describe an exam as 'easy', when it clearly isn't, you just personally found it easy. Ignore them and don't let them think you didn't do well just because you didn't think it was easy.

    Don't worry too much; there's nothing you can do now. They may be lying to make themselves look smart or they may have misunderstood the questions. In any case, feeling like an exam went easily or hard doesn't necessarily mean it went well or badly.

    What if the exam is easy? I had one today that I thought was easy, but maybe it wasn't for most people. I also had one a few weeks ago that was definitely easy. There's a clear distinction.

    But easy to you isn't easy for everyone. Exams aren't made to be easy.

    Give yourself a break for a bit after the exams, and then focus on doing well for your next set of exams.

    Relatively speaking though, some exams are easier than others, otherwise there would be no need for UMS calculations.

    If you have done a lot of revision / past papers, it can be quite easy to tell if you have done well. Depends on the person though, as some people aren't very good at predicting their results.

    hmmm yeah can't argue with the past papers but some people come out thinking they've done better than they have probably cos of the wordings of the questions or something rather than lack of knowledge
