    Did you ever have one of those....

    Exams where you actually dont have an f ing clue howto do most of the questions. well it happened me today!!! wasnt too confident going in had4 out of 8 topics covered and had to do 3 long questions out of 5so as youwould expect i wasreasonably confident that 2 out of the 4 i had covered would come up. To my horror, only 1 came up. i was sitting there thinking to myself "god i havent a notion how to do any of these questions bar 1" so i did the one question i knew about 5 pages. then i sat there hoping that some thought would pop into my head on another topic. it didn't. I began to think of when was the last time i was in such an unbelievably bad situation. honour maths leaving cert pre was the only one that came close, i got 17% in that one went on to get a D3 in the actual leaving cert. ended up writing a page and a half of waffle on the second question and just couldnt do anything for a 3rd one. only saving grace is that i got 70 out a hundred for my project so i need another 90 marks from the other 2.reckon ill get 20 for my page of waffle which means i need 70 for my good question. 4th year and all so if i fail im F...ked.

    Put it behind you, there's nothing to be done now but work for the next exam.

    I've been in plenty of exams where I thought I failed, did badly etc, and generally you overestimate how bad you did (though I did achieve the remarkable 2 out of 20 in a french oral once).

    Anyhow, finish the exams, get mad drunk and forget about the results.

    It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

    Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

              I know a fella who spelled his name wrong in an exam and got docked marks for it.

                  A while ago now but was in a similar situation in an electrical engineering exam. I just answered the questions i had prepared anyway, got 30%, and through some strange mark compensation system managed to get through and didn't have to come back from my J1 for the repeats. Keep the spirits up - its usually not as bad as it seems.

                        Exams only matter in the short time - if you've to repeat so be it, it's not the end of the world! You may be lucky and have written down stuff to get you marks. Examiners are only looking for key words and will scan for them, underline and mark according to their sample paper. Very simple really so you could be lucky
