You are not going to be compared to your friend only. You will be compared to thousands of students who have been taking the exam in all the world in the last six months.

So it does not matter at all that you and your friend taking the exam at the same time in the same center.

Well its just one person, there would be thousands more that you will be compared to. So go for it, atleast the idea of having a friend around might lower the anxiety.

I am in the same situation! I was wondering if just being around a friend taking the test the same day/ same center will cause you to be more anxious. Also, do think it will affect your performance if your friend is having a bad day?
