1. When you’re trying to quietly keep your nerve before the exam but you can hear people discussing something you don’t remember revising.

6. When the exam starts and you suddenly can’t remember whether you turned your phone off or not.

And you waste a few precious moments trying to decide whether it’s worth asking if you can go and check.

12. And you have to do the creep across the exam hall to the toilet with a suspicious examiner following you the whole way.

13. When you’ve finished the exam but you don’t want to be the first one to get up and leave.

15. When the less time you have left, the faster the clock seems to move.

Apparently all those wishes for time to speed up in your lectures are finally being granted.

16. When the invigilator asks everyone to stop but you then have to sit there for 10 minutes waiting for them to take the paper away.

I could be writing more things. I could have more marks. You have ruined everything.

17. And as soon as you leave you’re bombarded with questions about what you wrote.
