What to do if you really, really, blame yourself

Not panicking. That's what you do if you fail the exams

We were all there. Scrolling into the exam room, with a smirk on your face, answers right in front of your brain. Pure confidence in the ability to take this exam. Two hours later, and you're broken. Get out of the room, get him in your hands and surprise him, not to get out of the room. Or cancel your college applications. Instead, you can apply for a paper route

Beating is not the answer. None of them is a glimpse of your friend, who I think has received all the answers to questions (we know)

It's time to be constructive

First, first give yourself a half hour of panic

It's natural, and if you don't feel it right now, they'll probably come to haunt you. Let yourself cry, cry, run or get under the cover. In any case, you'll be the best

Now that the half hour is over, it's time to move on. Look ahead. Focus attention on the positive and some, believe me

Feels better about the crappy exam, finding other people who also found him shit

Maybe a lot of them. When

Nothing scares your day like knowing you're not alone

After you got your new friends, and you brought your hatred to the exams, look at it constructively

If you just get out of the room, you don't even know how much you've got. And it might not be as bad as you thought

On the other hand, if you just got the results and you really messed it up, try and find out

Who knows, it could be the beginning of yours

Taking those areas that you felt worst of all, and tell that to your professor. Look where you were wrong and ask them to get help and advice

If they can't immediately after the exam, ask them if you have an opportunity to meet quickly within the next few days

If you think the exam will be released

... and you're a little emotional, it might be a good idea to wait a while, not talk right after

Write yourself a short list of what went wrong, and how you think you can change it next time. Show it to your professor

If it means even more that your technique is structure, timers, or evidence, then past exams will be your best friend in the next few weeks

I hate to talk about it, and you may be bored, but past exams are the closest you get to the exam. And if you do them right-with the time set and properly prepared, you will improve your technique every time

But if it's not, then you just get out of it

Maybe we should talk to the head of the department to see if you can move or drop

Each of us has its own strengths, weaknesses and interests-that you are willing to work harder than others. Just because you're fighting one thing doesn't mean you won't be an expert in something else

If you're fighting this topic, because you put all your energy into the other, it might mean that you need to pay more attention to time management

Perhaps your other subjects are heavier and require much more time to study

But it is important to remember that a good balance of research is crucial to success. And maybe even for a short time, it's time to read your ratios and more time in the area you're currently fighting

It will be paid in full by the fact that the next exam will be given!

The fucking exam will not have too much impact on the rest of your life cycle

If you are so wrong, and it looks as if it would affect the further study of the applications, then perhaps you should honor your colleges and explain what went wrong, and that you learned from it as a result

College and universities do not simply need a set of letters on a sheet of paper; they will also look for personality and external achievements

The worst is in the worst case is an interesting and/or unique hobby associated with this
