The last exam I had was a physics exam on electricity. I had studied for a while and felt confident enough that I wouldn't panic on the first question. At the end, the exam wasn't too difficult and I got 83%. However, I don't think I would've gotten the same score if I hadn't studied much.

The English Exam
I passed my English exam so easily. I learned vocabulary every weeks and read English so I done my test fast and correctly. A day before my test, I check all my vocabulary and my writing skill so that I had the most point.

The most important exam I've ever gotten happened 2 years ago. It was super important. I learned the materials for 1 year. I went to courses 3 times a week, but sometimes 4 or 5 times a week. Every weekend I went to school. And i also went home later than most of the students in my school. Sometimes i stayed at school till 6 pm to study more. But actually every student in my class did those too. And after i finished the exam, i got the best score in my school. It was pretty great. Also, we got 3 months holiday too after those exams!

I had the most important exam during my whole life last summer, it was the Exam of Korean History. I studied about it about sixth months, almost every day. There were some parts and names of the organizations which I can't understand and remember. And also, 2019 was 100th anniversary of the creation of the pre-government. So, there were lots of questions about someone who is concerned with the Period of Colony of Japan, which I'm very weak at. But I tried my best to win the 5th cerificate of Korean History. And finally I made it! I won the 5th cerificate. Of course, exactly like every other studies do, the preparing was the hardest time, and after I achieve it, I could feel very very proud of myself. And now, I'm preparing for the 4th certiicate of it. I'm not sure I can do it well right now, but, I'm sure I will someday.

I will never forget my exam 2 years ago, I was very nervous because it was an exam of the economics course, for me it was important, because I love this course. I studied and practiced for almost a week, and of course the exam went very well. I was nervous but it was great!

I had lots of important exams, for example like the history test, the result has made me very surprised, I was so happy at that time and my friends either, the story started like this. It was a beautiful day with a clear sky, my history's teacher said: "Our class will have a history exam next week, now I'm gonna write the necessary parts for you guys." and I rewrite it into a paper. Of course, I had learned it hard but the test had 2 questions a bit similar, and I had a mistake in that but the teacher didn't rely on. Then my scores from 9 become to 10. : >

My last important exam was in June. It was History. I felt really nervous because I didn't know History well. But I had been preparing for the exam for about a month, that's why I passed it and got the best mark

Hi ariina. It sounds very tough right now but it would be great if you can do your best in the exam and study something interesting at university. Keep going and don't give up! :)

The last exam i had was about maths , i wasn't neither scared or stressed because i had prepared for it for weeks. I arrived at the classroom at 8:20 and prepared myself for the exam. fortunately, it was easy-peasy , there was 14 points on fonctions and 6 points for trigonometry. If i have to give an advice , it will be to prepare early so you can handle it without pressure.

I need to submit a literary analysis paper about American values in several days. What makes it extremely challenging is that I need to take two AP exams on the same due day. Even though I have been studying for the two exams for a month, I do not think that I am well prepared as I mess up with a number of questions every time I take practice tests. Furthermore, I need to work on a history research paper on World War II. I do not have strong base on English as I have been studying English only for two years. I really regret that I did not focus on ESL class that I had taken in previous school.
Even though this situation puts a lot of pressure on me in the moment, I am trying really hard to enjoy that I am alive and given a chance to be challenged as a student. I really appreciate that I am given a chance to pursue academics instead of getting no chance.
I really hope everyone else will get through their situations and hopefully achieve their dreams to benefit the world.

The last time was a month and a half ago, I felt a butterfly in my stomach as I had to overcome the Literature test.The day before that exam, I reminded myself to burn the midnight oil so as to pass the test by the skin of my teeth. ( For a student who is hopeless at social subjects, 50% is a breakthrough and determination and the majority is luckiness. :v ). But, I cannot pay attention to gruelling essays and language exercises, started feeling asleep, I decided to read a book for 15 mins. (15 mins in enough for my eyes and my brain to wake up ). Unluckily, The book that I took randomly was very touching, thought- provoking,..and I was completely enthralled by every page, firstly, 10 pages- I promised that I only read 10 pages and would get down to studying for exam, but I can't...20 pages, can't stop reading, 50 pages,....finally 323 pages. But that was not all, after finishing that book, I continue searching on the bookself for many books with the same topic...I totally ignored the preparation for the exam and justified that " Learning is a long process, not happen and change over night, anyway, I will fail. The best solution is keeping a tranquil soul and let the brain do what it is passionate about ". An excellent book : "Please look after mom" written by Shin Kyung Sook, and then is a host of Korean writers : Gong Ji Young, Hong Yeong Nyeo, Hwang An Na,...

The next day, ( you know, Vietnamese literature rarely asks you questions about Korean works), I sat silently, and my brain was silent, too. Anyway, I must write something,...tik tok...
I presumed that I would fail ( it's a big surprise if I pass), and worked up to taking that exam again...But luckiness smiled at me :). Still overcome in spite of bad mark..LOL. Anyway, I promise to learn Literature at least 30 mins a day.

I had an important exam few months ago. It was a speaking English exam. I was very nervous and I thought I couldn't; pass my exam. I didn't study before my exam because I though my English skills was enough good to my speaking exam. When my English exam began I've forgotten how to speak in English, I was really nervous , but my teacher told me one an important thing. She said, you can do it I know you can, I've heard your English a lot of time during our lesson and I know, you can speak in English. These words made my more confident and I passed my exam. I'm really happy now, because I'm going to art and design class after this summer holiday and I can go there because I passed my exam.

I never go to bed so late and I can wake up very early. I practise for my exams a lot, so I'm always ready. I sometimes forget my exam, but I always do it well.
