Thanks.
Wow, though. I just remembered what I was likely supposed to do where I messed up on question 1. I feel it was a HUGE issue and I don't know if I can get enough points from that question and my severely shortened last essay worth 35 percent.
I know you've been telling me not to worry, but my school gives out F's.

Thanks. I'm freaked out because that hasn't happened to me on other exams so I have a lack of experience.  The post exam feeling is not nice at all!
Will I still get points if I confused two contracts on the application to facts, yet wrote down all the law for two different types of contracts?

I had a personal problem during exam season so I wrote 1 exam later. I don't have any exams left and I want to be able to relax!

I haven't had to do a 60 min essay in 20 mins before, and I've usually been more organized in my exams. My brother says it's normal and it's just the way contracts exams go, but I'm so anxious!

I wrote down a LOT of law and I think that may be what wasted some time, so I hope I don't lose too many points for less thorough analysis.
Specks it's the likely missed issues in combination with running out of time for thorough analysis and a full essay that is scaring me.
Thanks Specks you are encouraging

Thanks.
It was written later than my classmates so I don't think I'm being scaled against them.
I'm concerned about the issue I mentioned in my earlier post (question 1) and then the lack of analysis in the essay. I hope I can get enough points to pass.
Also, there was an issue I couldn't find so I wrote down the law. I hope I can get points for that.

Hey everyone,

 I wrote an exam (outside exam schedule) in Contracts. I feel like I messed up on one issue because I got confused between two contracts and had to write the law for both. When I applied to the facts I was running out of time and had to try point form. I may have blended the application together. The essay question was worth 35% and I had to rush it and finish in about 20 mins as opposed to the suggested 60 mins.
I'm so stressed out about it. I hope I can get enough points to pass given the lack of time spent on the essay, the messed up issue, and the natural missing of issues that happens in law exams.

What do you think?
