    I've just done my Personal Finance exam, and I feel terrible about it!
    I know I have at least 2 questions wrong, and I know this doesn't sound like much, but if I got those 2 wrong, how many others will I get wrong???

    It was a multiple choice exam, and EVERYTHING didn't go that bad, but I feel like I could have done so much better!

    The only comfort right now is that the grade boundaries are low: 56/80 for an A, 64/80 for an A*...

    I can't stop obsessing about all the marks that could have gone wrong!! Please help! =(

    There is nothing we can really say or do that will significantly help you get over the exam.

    As others will likely say, what's done is done.

    Chin up, onwards and upwards. Think about what's now in front of you, not behind

    Worrying gets you 0 extra marks. Pointless and wasteful.

    Doing your other exams gets you more marks..


    Focus and keep things in proportion. Worry about things after.

    Well, food does CALM your nerves. But alas, don't dwell too long if you think you didn't do as well in your exam, that'll have an effect on your later exams and that ounce of negative feeling could distract you or put you off course.
