    Hi @Rezvan97 ..
    Nervous is good .. it raises your adrenaline level which makes you focus better. Yes, it might also raise your BS readings but these will come down again in a short time. Concentrate on what you "know" for your exam, and don't worry about what you think you don't know .. you'll be fine but good luck anyway :happy::happy:

    Good luck Rezvan97!! I always got super nervous over exams too so i can empathise. If u feel overwhelmed before, just go to the bathrooms and take a few deep breaths. Remember, nowadays you can go to uni at any age so dont put so much pressure on yourself. Im sure you will do great! Let us know how you get on x

    Lots of deep breaths, focus and all you can do is your best. Stress and anxiousness can pay havoc with your BS, but having a coping mechanism could help, as high BS can make you feel nausea's and tired out too.
    Wishing you all the very best and good luck :) x

    Good luck!! Are the examiners aware that you have Type 1 diabetes? Sometimes special consideration can be given. Also, the invigilators of the exam need to be aware of your condition just in case (unlikely) that a combination of heat and nerves has an adverse effect. Make sure that you stay well hydrated. All the best!!

    Good luck @Rezvan97 exams are your chance to show off what you know. If you're not sure of the answer take a chance even if you aren't certain. Exam markers are desperate to give you marks (I am speaking from experience), so focus on the paper, read it carefully and you will be fine. Let us know how you do. X

    I wish you good luck but by now you may have already succeeded. I have no doubts that you passed.
