    Exam/test

    Hello,

    Can you tell me whether these sentences are correct?:

    I have an exam tomorrow.
    I am having an exam tomorrow.
    I am going to have an exam tomorrow.
    I will have an exam tomorrow.

    I have a test tomorrow.
    I am having a test tomorrow.
    I am going to have a test tomorrow.
    I will have a test tomorrow.

    I wonder whether there is a difference in use between Americans and British.

    Thank you for your help.

    Re: Exam/test

    They are all correct, but I would say that the final one in each set (I will have ,,,) doesn't sound natural to me.

    The final ones sound OK to me- maybe it's a BrE difference.
