Hi guys

Doing exams at the moment and my fingers and hand are getting really sore. I still have 9 papers to go!!! I don't press on the paper too hard anymore but I think I'm gripping the pen too tightly! :( :blink:

Anyone got any tips on how to protect my finger tips.? :rolleyes:

Ta very much

Ruth.

Lactic acid, is what builds up in the hands and makes them ache. Shake your hands losely every so often. Don't worry knowone will be looking at you they will be consentrating on their own work. I di it and drank water no one is interested they are too ingrossed in their work. don't write in the evenings just for the exams and you should be fine.

Do you use pencil grips?? Sometimes the mechanical pencils have them automatically on them, but they are soft and make you feel more comfortable. I used to have lots of trouble with that. :D

Good luck in your exams, Ruth.

Could you apply to use a laptop or computer to type up your exams?

THankyou for all the good advice, it was really helpful. :D

I did look into using a computer but felt to worried that something might go wrong, you know where you ae with a pen. :)

My exams are over now- I had 11 papers! one paper was particularly tricky and I ended up bruising my finger tips and palm!

I get my results next monday. :unsure: scared to death :(

Wish me luck
