I get the impression that trying to explain an issue in writing is difficult for you to do so would advise that verbally discussing it with your instructor is a better option

You are not alone with this and is no reflection on your competency

In order to confirm my understanding of what you are asking here is a link to a Roundabout, am I correct in saying that you are sometimes confused, as you put it, as to what is the exit lane, and what is the entrance for cars (where the black car is on this link), and you sometimes feel you may end up taking the wrong one and end up on the wrong ride of the road facing oncoming traffic?

Could you please confirm if my understanding is correct.

Pleased to hear that :-) I have had some pupils who also have the same concern.

So the question really is how can you tell what is the exit and what is the entrance. A few things I would consider:

To explain here is another example of a roundabout, notice the exit has a blue keep left sign, the exit does NOT have a single white line, whereas the entrance does. The angle for the exit is a much smoother turn than the entrance, in fact it would be almost impossible to turn down the entrance on this example!

Also see on this example there is an information sign confirming where the exit goes, in this case Brighton, but it could be a tourist attraction, local suburb or something like that, basically where people may want to go.

Those are a few things I can think of off the top of my head, if there is a specific roundabout that is confusing then you could go onto Google maps and post a link on here and we can all see what we think.
