    In school test, when we are in a classroom I always do exceptionally well in the tests however when it comes to the exams halls my grades go significantly lower. When I start the exam I feel excited and try my best not to get worried about hard questions. I usually take my time to answer questions but in the exam hall the first thing that comes to my mind I choose to write down. In the exam I think a lot, not just about the paper but about what will happen to me if I fail this, I tell my self to ignore questions because they are not worth that many marks (I do attempt them after I finish the rest of the paper).

    For some reason my hands shake a lot too. The thing is, I know how being scared feels like and that is not the feeling I get during exams.

    Also, forgetting the answer even though I know it - this happens to me a lot of times during exams.

    My parents, friends and teachers tell me I might be scared or petrified of exams but I try to argue back that I'm not.
