It could be bad sectors causing the issue from Install Windows screen press Shift + F10 and type Diskpart press Enter key.
Type List Disk press Enter key. From the list of attached disk take note of your SSD disk number and type select disk 0 replace number zero with SSD assign disk number. Next command will delete all partitions and data on them so make sure you have backup your data before typing Clean All and press Enter key. After this command finnish close the Command Prompt and refresh the listed disks from Install Windows screen and try installing Windows 10 to unallocated space if this wont work we may need to full format the SSD drive.

My suggestion is not in direct answer to your question, but to help you get your notes ASAP. I well-remember college exams!
Use a virtual distro to enter your storage drive and pull your notes off of it. You can review them on-screen, or save to a thumb drive and print them out from another computer/printer. After the time-crush is over you can install Windows and do whatever it takes. I have seen situations like this go on for a couple of days, and you need time to study. If you aren't sure what disk to use, post back. Fat Dog is pretty good and easy to use, and Knoppix also is one of my favorites.
Another, maybe easier, suggestion is to take your storage drive and just connect it to another computer (maybe the one you are using to access this website) and reboot. The drive should show up in Explore and be assigned a drive letter. Now its easy to pull off your notes, or just review them on-screen. If you are currently using a laptop, you will need an external docking station or a SATA to USB connector-adapter. OR find a friend who has a desktop computer that you can use for a few minutes.
