Don't do that. Half your class probably guessed on 8.

sorry to hear. can't do anything about it. don't make the same mistake. that's one advice that i've never done. i seem to make the same mistakes on exams over and over, mostly due to laziness. if you're stressing now, then probably the only solution is time. it's not the end of the world. good luck on the rest of exams.

wasnt laziness. I had this exam in the bag. Was feeling awesome about it until i turned the page with about a minute to go and instead of seeing the end, i saw more questions.

Literally feel like crying

Not to be a dick, but in the future, see how many questions there are first.

As a shitty MC test-takes myself, I feel you. I'm sure you did fine though. Like the person above me said, half your class probably guessed on 8. Just move on to the next one and don't worry about it now.

Similar thing happened to me on my first exam last semester. Didn't have enough time to even write an answer for 12 of 100 allotted points. Just too damn slow. Ended up with a B-. Still kicking myself over what my grade would have been had I managed my time better. Really hurt my GPA, but it was a learning experience.

It's possible that some of those guesses may have hit the mark. Odds are at least one or two *might* be right. Not the end of the world.
