Get this, my anal retentive screwball proctor guy not only did not allow water (or anything to drink, but no water... Please...) but more importnatly, the proctor did not allow your "layers to be taken off during the test nor be next to you during the test. So much for dressing to appropriate yourself to variable climate in the testing room. Oh well I can't complain I wore my sweater after getting cold working up to the break, and kept it on 'til the writing sample was finished. Plus there was plenty of space. Good things.
Two girls were adjacent and across from me respectively. I tried polite conversation to ease pressure and the first bit my head off with "I am really really nervous so I can not EVEN talk right now, I cannot speak... Ironically her whole protest took more time to spew out than my polite banter previously.
The other girl responded in kind with "I need to *gestures in a straight line like an arrow pointing to the front of the room, pure idiocy and fright combined*
The last time I try to help fellow testers simply swallow their fear...
