It'll pass quickly enough mate.
On my exam day one of my daughter's was in labour with our fifth grandchild. Home birth by choice due to lockdown and had me fretting. Was a brilliant feeling though to find out I'd passed the exam and welcomed a new granddaughter! She'll always be my 'Radio Girl'
Glad to have got those nerves over with I tell you!

You get 60 minutes i am sure on the exam. When you get the first video call a few days before to check that the calling software is up and running you can ask him anything. The guy who did my exam was called Martin Atherton and he was spot on. Not a young bloke but i asked him if i could smoke due to nerves on the exam and he said have a spiff vape puff on a pipe not a problem lol. On the test day you have to make the call 15 minutes early so he can be shown round the room with your camera he will wand to look at your desk and both sides of the 4 pages you printed out. Nearly forgot he starts off by having a close up look at your proof of id i showed him my passport. Can't think of anything else but any questions just ask. What time of day is your exam i booked mine for 9.30am to get it over with lol.
