OK, I am getting slightly worried about my sanity. I had my biochemistry exam today and because it was done on a computer (in exam conditions though), it told you the result at the end.
I got 82% (41/50) and I know that is good. The first year is just pass/fail anyway so I passed easily. However, I am still annoyed with myself. I had an hour spare to look through my answers and make sure I hadn't made any mistakes but I was too impatient and just finished the test straight away to see what I got. If I had spent that extra hour checking my answers I probably would have got an extra few marks.
I know this sounds as though I am being stupid...and I suppose I am, but I still feel as though I did bad! I came out of the exam all miserable! As I say, I am begining to think I am going mad and trying to be too much of a perfectionist! Anyone else had a similar situation? Please reassure me that i'm not being a complete **** here!
(BTW - this isn't a show-off thread....the mark I got sounds good but the exam was fairly easy and I suspect everyone got decent marks - so mine is by no means exceptional).

It does sound as though you have a bit of obsession but i have felt like that except it was A level I needed the highest mark possible to pass

On the one hand, setting high standards for yourself is one way of making sure you achieve high results. On the other hand, your mental health can be seriously damaged by unduly pressuring yourself. It's for you to find your own balance.
