Could anybody explain, please?
Dear Colleagues,
Could anybody tell me which phrase to use for the following sentences?
Is it ´in the end ´ or ´at the end ´?
1.   The day before yesterday, I sat an examination. I knew nothing about the subject. ______________ I returned a blank paper and left.
2.   I would have liked to include thirteenth sentences for this exercise but I had no more idea after the twelfth sentence. ______________  I gave up and stopped here, at sentence number twelve.
Help me please...
Thanks in advance!

I think "in the end" is the correct option in both cases as in both cases the meaning is "finally".

Hope this link will make the difference clear for you.
