I feel like the biggest fucking idiot in the world

Slight over reaction and I'm sure i'm not the first person this has happened to but I took a major exam yesterday. Major in that if I pass it, I could get an interview to do a course which would give me a professional qualification and set me up for life. I am qualified and experienced to deserve an interview and i'm clever enough to pass the test. But I got flustered. The time limit was short and I misinterpreted one of the questions worth nearly a quarter of the points. I'm pretty sure I will have got zero for that question when I know the answer now. I just misinterpreted the quite vague question. Literally hundreds of people are taking this same exam over the rest of the month so i'm sure I will just be screened out and they only recruit once a year. I am absolutely gutted.

I have wondered about emailing or phoning the course director to explain but what if they then warn people yet to take the test about the vague question? That will disadvantage me more as if they leave it as it is, at least others might make the same mistake. God I am so angry at myself and embarassed, I feel so stupid when i'm bloody not.
