    I've always found that I'm a person who worries a lot after exams. I worry about whether I got the right answer or whether I accidently put down the wrong answer or I worry about how many marks I lost for this or that or what if i did that etc. etc.

    I've always found it quite difficult to control the worrying and I find that it affects my revision for the exams there afterwards. how can I try to stop this seemingly uncontrollable worrying after exams? Because it makes everything 10x more stressful

    I've noticed on Tsr people complain when they've lost like two marks and I'm here like '**** I've pretty much lost 40 marks'

    I know, I'm the same way. Give yourself a maximum time limit that you can spend thinking about the exam you did (say about 1 hour of looking on TSR at the unofficial mark scheme etc)

    Do something fun that distracts you - like watching a movie or going out with your friends. Unless you can force yourself not to think about it, the only way is to distract your mind.

    I know it can be really stressful, but it's done, done and dusted. Remember how hard you worked and that your best is enough you can't change anything about that exam that has been completed, but you can change the exams that are coming, so try your best to focus on upcoming exams and work hard. But remember to give yourself some down time too, to refresh yourself

    If you have time for it, ask for paper, write down your answers and look them up online. That's what I do. I can't handle the not-knowing.

    Are you allowed to do that? I assumed that wasn't allowed. :gasp:
