    lmao this is me! i definitely will run out of time, like there's no way I won't honestly. Also I'm looking at my notes I was just writing and I can hardly read them and that's not under timed conditions, so I'm pretty sure I'll fail literally just because my writing will be illegible hah
    Same, my writing is such a mess. Usually when I read other people's essays they start off neat and get messy towards the end. Me on the other hand.. my writing is messy the moment I write the first word. It's honestly a struggle, I feel sorry for the examiner marking my paper lol

    Yep same, like my hand kills and I never finish on time I think 2 completed essays then a rushed one will be kinda okay though
    Yeah I think that's a good idea because you don't really need full marks of each essay to do well anyway. As long as you nail two or do reasonably well, then the third one doesn't have to be absolutely perfect and it'll still be fine.. At least I hope :/

    I've found writing slowly is better simply because 1. You feel better about what you're writing and 2. What you're better is most likely gonna be better cause you've concentrated on it more- How many pages did you write?
    I wrote 3 and a half pages. I just did another essay in half an hour which was 3 pages long but it wasn't too good as I don't think my IDAs were too developed and I didn't want to go over time so I could get used to the timings. Time is such an issue, and if I write any slower I don't think I could write half as much. Even if it may make me feel better, in the end I'll start panicking because I'll have so much left to still write and not enough time.

    LMAO hopefully. Start the essay off really neat and sophisticated sounding, then make it illegible with a few good terms here and there so the examiner goes "dunno what this sh*t is but looks bretty good"

    Man, even if the exam was just ten minutes longer I'd feel a lot happier about it

    I can do an essay in about 30 mins, but my hand is going to kill so bad by the end
