When I am writing, should I let my thoughts flow naturally on the paper, or should I meticulously think them through and form full sentences out of them before putting them to paper? I'm really not sure which one I should use since I have a writing test tmrw and im panicking intensly. When I write naturally, I don't even think about the idea am writing about, I just start writing from the first word that comes to mind even if it doesn't relate then i connect it into the main idea.

- This question does not appear to be about English language and usage within the scope defined in the help center.
I personally use the scrap paper, which is often available during such tests, to write down my thoughts like you described, in a natural manner. Then after I finished a paragraph I start reorganising my sentences if needed and write it down on the answer sheet.
My method is not said to work for you as well, it works for me and many others. You can give it a try, but you'll have to figure out by yourself what works best for you personally.
Lastly there is no need to panic, based on how you wrote your question I'm sure you'll do just fine.
