    I had my A2 Geography Synoptic paper this morning, it went well, but annoyingly about 20 mins before the end of the exam I had a nose bleed! I remember someone talking about this a while back saying they hope they don't get one in the exam, well I did! Aargh! It was horrible. So annoying!

    Did they give you a bit of extra time to make up for it at least?

    They probably would have if I had told them about it or asked for it, but since I didn't, they didn't, no. I didn't miss out much if anything at all though that I could have done if I had extra time.

    Well in my two hour maths exam i got ill after 20 mins and had only done 30 marks out of 100 worth, so i went to the toilet to be sick and lost track of time and came back with just under 10 minutes left so i quickly looked through to the highest mark questions and did those making it around 50 marks i answered in total. If that's all right and my paper one was 100% or close i'll get a easy A anyway so i don't care.

    it may not be a nose bleed but it was annoying in the same

    last year i had an exam for AVCE manufacturing and from the start i had blinding toothache, so i went on through the exam with my left hand in my mouth pushing on the tooth trying to relive the pain while also trying to answer questions on the paper. was horribl, there was saliva running down my arm and the obvious look of pain on my face.

    but that wasn't the best of it, about 5 minutes towards the end after 20 odd minutes of me sitting there in blinding pain, the teacher person came over and said "you do know that if your finished u can go?"
    that just made me wanna scream.

    Ooh that must be pretty annoying.

    I have now learnt to remember to take tissues into exams! They are invaluable, for pen leakages, unexplained liquids etc.

    I have had a nosebleed before in an exam, and quite a bad one at that, it was really horrible, it almost looked like I was trying to write in blood.

    I once started choking in my law exam..I didn't understand how since I wasn't eating or drinking anything! :confused: took me 10 mins to stop!!

    I need AAA to get in for my conditional and BBC for my insurance .Talk about pressure! :eek:

    Well I've never had a nose bleed during an exam and I don't know anyone who has.
    But my music teacher told my class that once a girl vomitted in a exam and the vomit went on a girl in front of her.And the girl in front just kept working.If that was me I would have screamed and ran out of the exam room.

    I did that paper this morning, too! I think it went fairly well, but I don't like 3hr long synoptic papers!!!
