    I've got a resit tomorrow and I'm just reminiscing about the same exam that I sat last year. I just want to know why this happened to me: So, I spent roughly 3 hours a day revising for this single exam. I was getting As and Bs in the past papers I was doing at home (Without any notes etc. and I marked the papers as harshly as I could have) and then, in the real exam, I got a U Does this happen a lot to people even if they study their a** off for it?

    it killed me.
    but i learnt something from it.
    It was that when i get nervous in exams. I struggle and make mistakes. having no confidence in your work and yourself loses you mark. So get a good sleep the day before and make sure you have done all the past papers and are confident and comfortable with yourself.
