Has anyone else felt this way or been able to be placed someone else to sit your exams?

Why don't you think you can cope?
What makes it difficult?
How do you cope in normal internal school exams?

You need to talk to your school's SEN (or equivalent) department about this. Alternative arrangements are available but you generally need to have some medically valid reason for doing so. They'll be able to advise you as to what steps you need to take to put the arrangements you need in place.

When I'm in a exam hall full of people I find it hard to concentrate and don't like being in that environment.

I'd talk to someone about how you can develop strategies to cope with this - to get on in life you generally have to develop ways of managing. The rules on giving people extra rooms have been tightened as more and more students are saying they can't cope in a normal environment and it is hard to get sufficient proof that you have no other alternative. Think about what you could do that would make it easier - either something you can do for yourself (ask other people) or ask if you could be sat at the back/the side/the front/near the door within the main exam hall if one of those works better for you.
