A problem in Math exams

  1. Jun 23, 2008 #1
    I'm currently studying pure maths at advanced level and I can honestly say that I understand everything that the teacher says and I manage to do all the homework he gives us and so on. Given the correct amount of time, I could probably work any problem concerning topics that we have already covered.

    What I'm having a problem with are the exams. The exam is 3 hours long and we have 10 questions to work out. I start the exam all relaxed and everything however I don't manage to spend 18mins or less on each one and I either end up panicking and start making silly mistakes or I end up leaving a question out each time which ruins my mark. What I want to know is what you guys suggest me to do to fix this problem. I need to train myself because apparently the board of idiots that make the exam questions aren't looking to assess the students on what they know but on how fast they can express what they know. There's no time to think what so ever. Maybe you guys went through the same problems some day, so.. what can I do?

    Thanks for your help
