16 Times Broadchurch Summed Up How You Feel About Exam Season
We love Broadchurch, but exams… Yeah, not so much. Admittedly, though, the drama in both is pretty similar!
1. When you realise exam season is upon you.
2. You wake up and the first thing you think of is how much revision you have to do today.
Bleary eyed, the feeling of dread descends.
3. But your housemate lets their really loud friends come over when you’re trying to study.
You don’t need to hear the laughter and good time they’re having right now (or ever).
4. After 10 minutes, you inevitably get distracted by social media and suddenly have lost the whole morning.
Damn you, Facebook Tasty videos.
5. Your friend starts texting you about how much revision they have done.
And it’s much more than anything you’ve done.
6. So you speak to another friend for solidarity, but they have also done more revision than you.
How dare everyone else make so much progress!
7. You have a mental breakdown two weeks in because you know there’s not enough time to get everything done.
This could be at your desk, in the library, or on the floor à la Detective Inspector Alec Hardy.
8. So you decide to call your mum, and she tells you to have a nice cup of tea to calm down.
After all, mother knows best.
9. You slowly start to remember things you’ve revised – and it’s the best feeling ever.
Finally you feel like you have all the knowledge in the world.
10. When a mate has finished their exams and they want to hang out, but your last exam is still one whole week away.
You make a mental note that you need to make friends on your course too so you can all freak out together.
11. So they try a different tactic.
Sometimes this works, but if so, you normally end up stressing more about the fact that you spent time talking about revision rather than actually doing it.
12. When you venture out of your room or study spot for a drink or snack and see your friend/housemate for the first time in a long time.
Alone with your books is all you know.
13. You convince yourself to do an all-nighter, but your housemate advises against it.
(Turns out, they were right. It’s a bad idea. But you don’t admit that to them.)
14. You walk into your first exam resigned to your fate.
“I’ve prepared for this – I know my stuff!” And repeat to self 50 times before entering the exam hall.
15. You speed out of your final exam, knowing it’s all over.
Freedom at last!
16. And get ready to celebrate with your friends, because you made it!
Bring me all the alcohol, please and thanks.
