yeh i reckon it was far too long, around 10 people left my exam hall lolol
yeah i agree with you. i always stay to the end coz i usually start thinking of answers at the end xDyoyotommo said:nah, its good, i just wrote up to the end, i do in every exam, wtf is the point leaving early, if u leave early ur not writing everything u can, and u may say u r but ull probs realise later u coulda wrote more, hence stayting there is better 4 ya.
yeh i'd rather know i wrote as much as possible in the time allowed rather than getting my mark back and thinking "hmm maybe i should've tried to bullshit some more marks instead of leaving early..."yoyotommo said:nah, its good, i just wrote up to the end, i do in every exam, wtf is the point leaving early, if u leave early ur not writing everything u can, and u may say u r but ull probs realise later u coulda wrote more, hence stayting there is better 4 ya.
agreed.emo-kid-91 said:my school doesn't let us leave early, which, i have to say, is a relief. it's something to do with affecting the other students if you leave before they do - they'll be too focused on worrying if you've gone good or bad compared to them to do the proper work, or something something something.
as for me, personally, i like the three hours. i finished the first two parts in an hour, with an hour for period and an hour for personality (and then fifteen minutes after writing my numbers ). i think that if you've got an hour to spare, there's definitely enough time for you to sit back and dig through your mind and come up with another paragraph or two.
I felt like I had a lot of time... but I also feel like I should have known more to put in.Lindethiel said:Everyone at my school thinks this. Out of the two Ancient classes, less than one is ever still there at the end of the exam, everyone else manages to leave early, and these aren't just losers winging it, the crown jewels of both classes were comfortable leaving an hour early.
We literally have enough time to word each sentence individually and still have extra time to spare.

I write 500 words per 20minutes with pausing breaks.... God I know what you mean. LOL! my hand has to be strapped before and after exams tho.
maybe its an indication of the range of lvls in ancient!
