How do you feel immediately after an exam is over?

For me it is relief unfolded!! I would have been studying for what seems like ages, for the exams. Then from two days before the exams, i would be so tensed up that i would end up visiting the bathroom a dozen times a day!! The overwhelming pressure of performing during the exams would keep my heart racing all the time! So finally, when I am out of the exam hall, all the adrenaline rush is over and a sweeping bliss falls on me, regardless of how i performed!! How do you feel?

As far as I am concerned, my sigh of relief starts in the first five minutes when i go through the paper and find out i know enough to pass(hopefully). After the exam there is a sense of elation that is hard to contain. Plus I religiously make it a point to sleep atleast twelve hours after every exam

Whenever my exams are over, a huge burden is lifted from my shoulders. I have planned so many things that even in excitement sometimes I am not sure where to start. During often I am unable to sleep and kept thinking about exams. Suddenly when exams are over, all those tention is just gone.

it actually depends on my performance on the exam. if i did good then i feel confident and relax, otherwise i feel bad and there's a lot of regrets. but i don't take all my exams seriously.

I usually feel pretty exhausted after finishing an exam but also feel relieved that it is over finally. Taking a test can be very stressful and tiring at the same time in my opinion. It feels better if you know that you did well on the exam.

Well, it depends on the exam :)) If it's not an important one, i don't stress myself too much. But if it's a crucial one, it's a different story. I'm sometimes nervous when i'm in the exam hall, but i always manage to calm myself down. and, when i finish the exam, i get out of the room with a feeling of relief, like "thank God that's over", and i simply hope that i performed well enough.

Yeah its definitely a great relief as if a heavy burden has been unloaded from our shoulders. But one thing i would like to mention that they make your days pass with no time. during exams days pass from the month since we are unaware of the outer world during that period.

It really depends on how I've prepared for an exam. If I studied and reviewed my lesson before an exam, I feel confident during the exam and I feel more confident after before I know that I will pass that exam. If I had no preparation for an exam, I will feel tensed during the exam and after the exam, I will be just glad that it's over regardless of my performance.

Relieved, immensely relieved!! I feel like time starts to crawl two days before the exam starts, but just as you feel you should study a few chapters once again, time suddenly flies!! But once the exams are over, I feel such relief.

As my personal experience, when im out of the exam hall first of all i forget everything i studied for the exam.If some one asks anything i put a blank face. And most of the times im happy if i end the exam successfully. One more fact is that more the tension i feel before the exam that much better im goping write the exam.If iam cool before the exam that indicates im not going to do well in the exam.Happiness and discussion are the common things found after the exam. If my exams are over with that exam the its much happy else again the same tension and hardwork for the next exam.
