    Long story short, I ended up crying in my exam today because I didn't have a clue what I was doing and now I feel like a right idiot. Does anyone else have any similar experiences?

    Yes, but for a different reason.

    It was the English Language exam. And God, the essay they asked us to write about was so sad and depressing - I couldn't help but tear up inside and tear up outside. I was crying; I think it was "weeping" - my English is not that good. It was so painful.

    I also cried (this time with laughter) when I got my results. I got an A for that exam - maybe the tear drops on the answer script might have influenced the examiner.

    The examiner might have thought they were genuine.

    I almost did, in one of my A2 exams. It was a subject I'd never struggled in before, so when I found myself really struggling in the exam, I totally lost my confidence. I think the combination of having an unexpectedly difficult paper, plus the general stress of the exams just really got to me on that day, and I ended up crying on the way home and for most of the afternoon as well

    I've had exams that went so bad that I just doodled the whole way through, but I expected them to go bad, so I wasn't overly upset

    I never cried in an exam, but I did make someone else cry afterwards. They said "that multiple choice question on page 3 about the titrations? I put down 3.15" I said "You mean page 6?"

    I have in an A2 Chemistry ISA. Everyone was finishing up and starting to write their tables for a titration ISA. I, on the other hand, didn't manage to find any endpoints whatsoever and so had nothing to write down on the table and I broke down. :cry: :hide:

    Yes. Last year in November I was sitting GCSE Maths, and the non-calc exam got me in tears while writing the paper. Towards the end the questions were just straight out ridiculous, so I ended up crying three quarters of the way through. I managed to hide it by keeping my eyes on the paper and sniffing discreetly. I look back at it now and think how I'd wasted time getting upset in an important exam. I don't think about it now though because through a miracle I passed

    Last year when I sat my AS exams on May/June, during my C12 Maths paper [it's basically Core 1 and Core 2 combined] I missed like three to four questions, and I only realised that 5 minutes before the exam ended when the invigilator told us to go through our paper, I was in a state of shock. I started crying (and honestly didn't give a damn at whoever was looking at me at that moment cos I felt helpless).

    No, but I have been in an exam and started laughing uncontrollably because I knew so little about the exam in front of me. It was an accounting unit I'd chosen to do because it was supposed to be easy. Unsurprisingly failed.
