Were you watching a horror movie with a bunch of spiders on your hand,and there was snakes in your shirt while doing your exams?
'Accepting my fate'.
I had that exact feeling for last semester's econometrics final. Sadly, no heart rate data from it, but I'm sure that dip was in there about midway through.
This could have been me a few years ago.
Best physics exam I ever took though was one where about halfway through the exam the professor announces that the exam is canceled and we can all leave. Turns out he couldn't get a correct answer on one of the problems when he tried to do it himself. It was something ridiculous too. We had to calculate where debris from an airplane exploding in mid air would land. It was very simplified (stuff like "assume the plane only broke into 3 parts each with a mass of X Y Z). This was in a second semester of the "engineers physics" course.
He had a reputation for making up some very interesting problems on his own but he just bit off more than he could chew that time heh.
EDIT: Another memorable exam question now that I'm thinking on it was where I had to find out how long a beetle resting on a rotating disk could manage to stay on if he just relied on the force of friction. Another one was figuring out at what angle the fins of a drag racer had to be in order to maximize the downward force on the wheels to get the most traction. They were really interesting problems I just wish I had more than 50 minutes to solve them, heh.
