    I hate the panicky feeling you get in exams, especially towards the end when the time is running out.

    Also, by looking at the model answers I think I'm gonna lose about 7 marks max, silly mistakes exclusive. What about you?
    I panicked in the start cuz normally we enter the exam hall 10 mins b4 and then 5 mins b4 the paper starts we can open the paper and read the questions and that mentally prepares us for the exam but on thursday our exam incharge said that people from edexcel came on a round and they informed us that we are no longer allowed to open the paper b4 the time starts so we had no time to mentally prepare ourselves b4 the time starts and we all panicked as soon as the time started
    I actually like to not calculate the mark i am getting my the minimum mark i can obtain like i cut 1-2 marks extra from every part of the question just so that i dont start expecting alot and then not get disappointed by the result so my minimum mark came to be 90/125

    Wow I didn't know that was even allowed lol. Here, we are never allowed to check out the questions, not until the exact moment the time starts. Well at least next time you will be mentally prepared haha

    1-2 marks per question is a lot of caution in my opinion. Silly mistakes happen but not that often.

    Your center should be more aware about that stuff.

    Best way to avoid such mistakes is by saving some time at the end to check over your answers but unfortunately, usually, there is not much time available by the end of the paper.

    Talking about silly mistakes, I myself did something weird in the last exam. I wrote my full name in the 'surname' section lol and left the 'other names' section blank. In which section did you write your name?

    It actually doesnt matter cuz they recognize u by ur centre and candidate number they never read ur name
    I wrote my actual name under other name and surname in surname section. But i did the same thing during olvl exams so doesnt matter

    Haha that's a relief, I thought they might not mark my paper or something due to the way I wrote my name.
