Here I whinged for ages about exams but it was boring so I cut it! The moral? Be sure to work hard during the year! Ensure you have sufficient notes to revise from! And start revising early! Otherwise you will panic and be scared you will not be going to Canada and want to cry!
However, the exams were not actually as horrendous as imagined. You need to know some facts and stuff, but remember that it is only first year and they only really expect you to know what you did in lectures. I mean, I didn't start working properly for them until a fortnight before they started (although, granted, I did hardcore working for all that time) and I managed to get some marks I was secretly proud of! 68 in Ancient Philosophy and 67 in Philosophy A! The others were less awesome but still reasonable pass marks! But you should still learn from my mistakes and work properly all through the year. Definitely.
