Hi, everyone


From 10 to 12 tomorrow morning I will have/ have / will be having an English Exam.

I think it's wrong to use ( have ) in this sentence. It's better to use

( will be sitting or will be taking) because of the continuity of the action at a certain period of time in future.

Does ( will be having) work in this sentence.?

Thanks in advance.

I agree with you. 'Have' sounds wrong, particularly, the meaning of 'have an exam' doesn't work here. 'Take' and 'sit' (Br. E) work much better here.
