I love to look at the invigilator and try to think whether they are thinking that I'm cheating hahaha I know it's weird but I spend a good 15 minutes normally doing that. And specially at Uni as 2 hours is far too long for most of my exams

In my first maths exam we could hear the diggers from the building work & when we were in the drama studio for biology could here all the younger kids playing as it was lunchtime for the rest of the school both of which were very distracting.

When the invigilator said Lord of the Rings instead of Lord of the Flies But seriously it's all about location the colour of exam venue can be therapeutic or head ache inducing. Also as bottom of register person I always get shunted about to some overflow room with a single inviligator which is rather frustrating.

Good looking invigilators
I wish I had that distraction . If anything, the most distracting things are the moles on their faces.

When I had a twich hahaha

Invigilators standing over me, pacing up and down or sneezing.

When some of the stupid invilgilators (dinner lady) whisper argh I woudl rather they spoke aloud normally!

When I'm right in the corner of the hall which is next to the practice room for drums...

When my exams clashed and so some of us had to go in a room to do our business exam and again the dinnerlady didn't keep exam conditions and there were people talking and constantly asking to borrow my calculator... it was a 1hr 45min exam to :|

When the desks move.

People being generally noisy outside the examination hall and so I cannot concentrate or actually hear the tape in listening exams.

Yes I want to leave this school

Thats a long list..I think I experience many of the same problems too.

Oh God. When I was doing my A2 Biology Synoptic, some awful biatch kept on sniffing really loudly in the row next to me, so I couldn't concentrate just as it was getting to the most difficult part. I was very distracted, and I hope I don't get a U because of it Well, if I do, that biyatch is going DOWN BABY DOWN! :ninja:

Well in my English synoptic, I was in the corner, at the very back, and it was also dark (past the gym windows).

The person next to me also kept taking out a cheat sheet/crib notes and cheating, which rustled a lot. He also kept asking me what to write. I was terrified of being caught.

Noise!
I am one of those who can't just block things out of my mind. In my English end of year there was some girl who just coughed every 30 seconds for ages. I was getting so annoyed, but when I got out of the exam and commented about it everyone was like "What coughing?", and they were too stuck in the exam to hear. >_< Wish I could do that! =[

In my AS English exam, this boy behnd me was sprawling out with his legs against my chair and kept kicking it and putting me off. I didn't think to report him during the exam as I was already running out of time and afterwards it slipped my mind to report it. Ended up dropping almost 2 grades from my average in English x_x

During the Chem AEA, there were only 4 of us in a giant empty exam hall.. so the very bored invigilator decided to straighten every single desk and chair around us for THREE hours, complete with the scraping noises of metal legs against the floor.

Luckily, I tuned it out after about 10 mins, but jeeeez.
