    I have many exams coming up and would like to know how you deal with your exams. I just get really nervous and end up getting sick from the nerves before the exam.

    Like my head just does not like exams -.-

    http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stress-...tress.aspxthis is primarily for parents but it might be useful for them to read so they can spot when you look stressed at home and be able to help.
    otherwise, make sure you bring a bottle of water to each exam, and tissues in case you get a cold from a weakened immune system (mine goes pretty low at exam time), I get my tissue packs from Boots and they are Kleenex balsam and menthol, I like them best because they smell minty so I can just sit and take time to breath in the smell if I need to. I know they don't encourage toilet breaks in the middle of your exam but if you do find you may have a breakdown or be sick then I'd encourage going out of the exam and having a moment in the toilets to just sit and relax and maybe wash your face since it makes me feel more refreshed
    Hope this helps and if you ever need any help you can always pm me

    I had my routine, around 10 mins beforehand I'd go do a big poo - being alone in a cubicle is good for nerves I find, rather than spending time around your classmates and having their nerves affecting you

    I just had my mock test for programming.

    I have so failed life. It was like an English guy (me) reading Arabic for the first time.

    confidence + learning how to not give a ****
    I've thought that I bombed a lot of my exams, but I really didn't, even in the situations of forgetting my pens and being given a pen that didn't work for about half the exam, and an exam where I finished like 30 minutes early (2 hour exam).
    + even if you fail an exam, if you're at uni at least, you have plenty of chances to repair your course average.

    also, you have to know that, if you're doing a humanities subject at least, knowing how to write a really good essay in terms of its structure can mean that even if you don't know what to write in terms of answering the question, it will make it *seem* like you at least know how to answer an essay question structurally. that goes a long way. even if you know exactly how to answer an essay question but you don't know how to structure your work, you'll not do very well. I've learned that too well. so basically, if you burn the theory of essay writing into your mind/memory, you're kind of sorted. take it from me.
