    I am a really quick writer and i usually finish an exam in about half the time they give me, as a result i find the last hour of an exam incredibly boring. Is there any way I can quietly entertain myself for the last hour. I usually see how long i can hold my breath for but i'm worried that it might be bad for my health.
    (Note: I cant leave the exam early, I know i should check my exam but I still have loads of time)

    Seriously just check your paper, unless you know you got full marks then chances are you'll regret it.

    People that finish early and just sit there are honestly idiots.

    Look for typos in the questions. If you're determined to find a typo or a really pedantic error in the exam paper you'll usually find something. And while you're doing that, read your answers as well. I know that re-checking your answers is really boring, but if you pretend to yourself that you're actually checking the questions it seems less boring.

    I do this all the time.

    So you get 100% on every single exam? If the answer is no then keep checking.

    You'd feel like a complete IDIOT if you got a C or even a B if you really needed an A, "how to entertain yourself" should honestly be the least of your worries, just sit there and look over your paper, even if it bores you to death it's only an hour or so and it is extremely important
