YEEESSSSS
And this sucks especially when you've got a limited about of paper...
Like I once sat a German test and I had like four pages
And I started writing like I normally do (my handwriting is quite big) and when I got to the last page I was like **** **** ****

Though what I find helps is to make a small plan at the top of the page on topics you want to mention so then you don't get lost with ideas in the middle of the exam. (I hate it when that happens :rofl:)
