    Taking exam.

    "We take exams but when we are answering questions from the question paper what do we say? I am writing or doing or taking the exam at the moment?

    If we say "I am giving exams", then what would it mean?

    Please check.

    Re: Taking exam.

    "I am taking the exam" means you are engaged in answering the questions on that exam.
    "I am giving the exam" means you are assigning, handing out, and/or supervising the exam for students to take. You are probably the teacher of that class, or perhaps an invigilator.
