In particular, you should be willing to put down questions. If you discover a mistake, write down that you made a mistake, then go on to the next question rather than "not finish" the test. The goal is to avoid being "trapped" by an overly expensive fix caused by a minor error. In many contexts, the marks you'd get from trying gram-schmidt orthonomalization, making a mistake during it, pointing out where you made the mistake, then noting "don't have time to fix it" would be relatively high. And the marks you get from a blank answer to a question would be relatively low.

How can I not know it if I had 10 rows of formulae correct, than obviously forgot to write a minus somewhere?!

I haven't really thought of dyslexia though, I tend to attribute it to concentration problems and the like, even though I have the impression that I'm completely concentrated while working.
Were your wife and/or sister professionally diagnosed with dyslexia?
I don't want to find myself a stupid excuse for not being able to calculate or something, but I'm really becoming kinda desperate regarding this topic, so I don't want to rule any possible explanation out.
