7. When you read through past exam papers and literally understood nothing.

8. And tried to figure out whether the fact that you’re just not cut out for exams counts as an extenuating circumstance.

13. When you copied the module code down incorrectly and decided it was a sign to just give up already.

14. And immediately became paranoid that the nearest invigilator had it in for you.

“They’re definitely playing that stand-near-the-person-who’s-definitely-going-to-fail game.”

15. When you opened the paper and straight away saw a question on a topic that your tutor promised wouldn’t come up.

16. And looked around hoping that everyone else was as lost as you were.

17. When you couldn’t understand why people were already asking for more paper when you weren’t even half way through.

18. Or how people were already done when you felt like you were going to need another 3 years of uni to finish the paper.
