    I'm in year 8, yesterday I had a Maths test. It was two papers, one without a calculator one with a calculator. The first test without a calculator went all right but the second one was awful. The questions were totally different to anything we did in class, and I didn't have a clue what to do. I only managed to answer 3 out of 8 questions, 2 if which I know were wrong. My mind totally blanked out, and I just sat there, not knowing what to do. The test counts when they put us in sets in year 9. But at the moment I'm in top set, but this test is going to take me down so many sets!!!!! I am quite good at maths but for some reason I just blanked out on this test. My teacher has never given anyone a re sit, so shold I ask him or not? He also hands out tests by announcing everyone's result, people expect me to do well, so they will just laugh at me.

    Note: My teacher is really strict and mean, so not sure wether he will just laugh at me, and tell me it's my fault for not revising (which I did for hours). Also, two days before the test I was mildly concussed, and kept forgetting things. Could this be the reason why I just forgot all my revision work?????
