    Invigilator was barking at me, I told the invigilator to calm down - > pissed the invigilator off even more, I said you cant talk like that -> filed complaint!

    Now I have to go see a bloody committee.

    Any advice?

    Do you want a capped resit?? You're an adult - what do you think you should do?

    You behaved like an idiot and these are the consequences. Calm down, stop swearing, get the chip off your shoulder, act sorry and apologise.

    Telling someone to calm down because they barked at you is acting like an adult. I think you're going massively over the top.

    If you think acting like a passive wimp and letting anyone walk over you is being an adult, boy you're deluded.

    That's behaving like a brat.

    A grown-up would realise that the invigilator possibly 1) has a load voice, or b) was stressed so spoke abruptly, and would let the issue go without throwing a tantrum.

    You made this about your ego being dented, and you felt you need to put the invigilator 'in his place'.
