Hi all

Just interested to know how nervous you get before an exam. Does it not bother you or do you get worked up the day before?

I have my exam tommorow and I am not sure how I am feeling to be honest!

    Hi Amy

    At the risk of sounding like a weirdo I actually quite enjoy it ... mostly! I say "mostly" because however well I've prepared I can't relax the night before - I always feel a bit guilty, as if I should be making better use of the final hours before the exam. I usually feel worse afterwards waiting for the results.

    All the best for tomorrow!

    Hello Amy

    For me it depends on the exam and how well prepared I felt for it. Some of the level 4 exams did not worry me at all and were a pleasure to sit whilst others left me feeling sick and a complete wreck the night before.... and for the run up to results day. I tried telling myself what is done is done and as long as you do your best that is all that anyone can ask for :o

    I guess we all deal with exam pressure/stress in different ways.

    Good luck with your exam.

    I know what you mean wabisabi!

    I feel exactly the same, and once the exam gets going I am okay it's just waiting in the exam centre!

    I don't find it gets any easier either, I cannot wait until my studying days come to an end.

    Jo, what were your best exams and what were your wort out of interest?

    My worst was Financial Statements.... sorry, Not because I didn't know 'my stuff' but just found it really challenging. I know you are about to start this so don't let that put you off... It was my first level 4 module and was started within a few days of completing level 3 - I think a small break may have been beneficial.

    My best were the two tax modules which I really enjoyed studying for :o
