Could anyone help my English study, please?

So, When people say " I want to get it out and done with", is it mean they want to do it and finish it anyway?

For instance, You have to take an exam but you are not really ready for it, but you have to do it anyway, so you feel like you just want to do it then just want to finish it?

I would appreciate your help, thank you in advance.

    Yes, but as a native English speaker, I've never heard "out and done with". (That must be a peculiarity of the speaker.) It's usually "over and done with"...

    Yes, that is a good example of a situation for which a speaker might say, "I just want to get it over and done with." Note the expression is not "out and done with," at least in American English.
