    That must be a bit of a bummer when you walk outside, after you've had pictures of the Bahamas, or the countryside on show all day
    Yeah dude, it sucks.

    Wow, really? Are you sure the phobias from A to C will be enough?
    Honestly, no. It will not be enough.

    But you say you have Domatophobia - which will be very helpful indeed. It broadens your horizons in terms of phobias, adding one that begins with "d" to your otherwise limited range of A-C.

    Ah, I see. So there's still hope for me?

    Wow, this is quite a lot.

    I'm sure if you apply for special consideration, they will have to give it to you.
    I know a guy who has all the phobias beginning with E all the way to H. He gets 10% extra time, accordingly.
    You can only have special consideration if something happens or gets worse at the point of exam so the OP would either have to develop a sudden morbid fear of chopsticks during the exam season or be faced with an unexpected encounter with chopsticks during an exam (e.g. it's played during a music exam).

    I don't want to raise your hopes but there is still a very, very small chance.

    I haven't ever recommended this before, but i suggest you lie. Throw in a couple more phobias. Maybe some exotic ones, beginning with Y - or if you are feeling brave enough - a Z?

    This will further your chances significantly.

    All the best,
