Im just asking for other people's opinion since im sure i wasnt the only one to question myself. I just had my exams and got 100 in 2u (1st) and 60 in my 3u (3rd [first was 65, 2 marks ahead]). I did poorly not because the test was hard, but because I simply panicked and did numerous silly mistakes. Nonetheless, I will bash my head against the wall, but I want to top extension overall at the end of the year. My question is should I do ex2. I really want to. It looks really fun and I absolutely love maths. Some kids say it's very hard and if you dont get 100 in e1 u shouldnt do it.

I think you definitely could start off with it and see how you go - you can always drop it if you aren't doing well! As for your last sentence, it is not at all necessary to get 100 in ext1, I know a lot of people who got very high marks in 4u and didn't do as well in 3u. Plus, 4u helps a lot with 3u, so you will improve on that front.

Yeah do it it's really fun and makes 3u a breeze. Also it actually has some challenging questions which makes maths fun to do (unlike 3u aka rote learn)

Stop agonizing over it and just do it! And start working on your 4U now; don't wait for term 4.
