    I'm just so worried about my English literature exam. Need 240/400 for a C and I don't even know if I'll get it.

    I feel so unsure of how I did! The closer to results day we get, the more I think it went badly, even though I know some exams went well, but overall I'm worried about my grades. So yes it's very normal!

    Yes, especially when you come out and start comparing answers with other people and find you've put different things!

    absolute worst is when you walk out of the hall thinking you bossed it and then you hear everybody else discussing answers that are like the complete opposite to yours

    but yeah, as the days go on, my expectations are dropping

    Yeah, definitely!

    Like with one of my biology exams:

    Came out of the exam: I think I got full UMS in that

    Checked on TSR: Okay maybe scraped A*

    Saw paper again two weeks later: Hopefully should be an A

    Five weeks later: holy crap did I even get a C I've messed this all up
