Im really stressed out after my english language exam. I ran out of time for question 5 and didnt finish it eventhough I gave myself half an hour to do it because i was struggling to think. q1-4 were hard and it took a long time for me to think of something to write because i was panicking and my mind blanked, for q5 I panicked and couldnt think of a good plot for the narrative and so i went with what I could think of and went with the flow making sure to make it descriptive and interesting but then again I was panicking so i dont even know if it made sense. now the question was about a life saving rescue and I had to put it in te story obviously, i stared at the time and there was 10 mins left and then i tried to put in the rescue without making it rushed but then there was 5 mins left and i had to put the rescue in the story but my mind blanked and i just wrote what i could!! and now that sentence is left unfinished!! Will I lose marks because i didnt focus the story on what it told me to do. Im stressed because I got a 9 last time and i know that what I just did in the exam was not my best. I tried and revised so hard for this exam doing past papers and everything but in the exam it felt like I knew nothing!! I guess partly the reason was because I panicked. Will I be able to push up my grade to a 9 if i do amazing in lang paper 2? Even after what i wrote in that exam because ik that was the worst ive ever written!! it was so bad I just know it!! and these are the real exams. if i hadnt done amazing and didnt get a grade 9 in the mocks it would have been fine but these are REALL! But ik I cant do that paper can even though i wish i could. Whats done is done but i still have paper 2. can i do amazing in paper 2 and get a grade 9?and how do i ? And any tips on how to not panic and control my nerves and also manage my time?

I think you could probably still get a grade 9 with paper 2, also control your nerves by maybe controlling your time better? I don’t really know, I usually start and do all the smaller questions in exams then whatever time I have left I use for the bigger ones. But overall nothing to stress about what is done is done and time to focus on your other ones.

Does school Maths prepare people well enough for the future?

Yes, it gives everyone a good foundation for any future path (40)
Somewhat, if your future involves maths/STEM (58)
No, it doesn't teach enough practical life skills (27)
Something else (tell us in the thread) (1)
