What feelings do people get after they finish an exam?

  • 1 vote

I got 7a*'s and 3 a's in my mock, and I knew the subjects I got an a* in basically as soon as I walked out the hall because I just knew they had gone well. However I'm really worried that I am doing really badly in my GCSE's because I have come out the hall with literally no idea how I have done, and I am scared its because I have done badly! Does anyone else feel like this too?

You just gotta relax, what's done is done, and worrying won't change it. You'll probably get good marks, and even if you haven't, you shouldn't let them stopping you from going places, just learn from your mistakes and you'll fly high:)

Im a bit of a worrier myself. If you know you have tried your hardest then they nothing to worry about. In the end of the day, when you look back in a few days at the exam you will probably think that it went okay. The pressure when in the exam makes you feel all kinds of emotions and so one question you cant answer, will make you think the whole test was impossible.

Dont worry about it, I done my GCSE's last year and though I dont terrible in my Maths exam and ended up with an A*.

If you know you have tried your hardest and put the work in there is nothing to worry about. Believe in yourself :)

I genuinely thought I had done really badly in my GCSEs last year but I came out with 10A*s and 2 As. Don't worry about your grades until results day. I always think its best to feel unsure after an exam because you feel even better when you do well on results day!

Don't worry at all. It happens to everyone i mean  i didnt know at all how i had done my GCSE's because i just had this neutral kind of feeling....and i was pretty surprised when the results came out.

Don't Worry :)

I usually feel calm after my exams. I know when I've failed and when I've passed but I just stay calm. I have a laid back attitude to exams.
