We’ve all done it.

1. You arrive outside the exam hall, torn between just wanting to get this over with and wanting the floor to swallow you up forever.

2. Not that you admit this to anyone who asks how you’re feeling about it.

3. You think a desperate attempt to cram in some last-minute revision will help.

4. But the more you try to read, the less you seem to know.

5. It doesn’t help that you can hear other people discussing things they’ve revised that you definitely haven’t.

6. So you just admit defeat and console yourself with the thought that this will at least all be over soon.

7. You walk into the exam hall like:

9. You locate where your friends are sitting and look over at them like:

10.  And when the invigilators ask if you have any questions, you consider answering honestly.

11. It only takes one glance at the first page for you to make your mind up about how this is going to go.

16. And even use the odd “thus” to make it seem as though you know what it is you’re talking about.

17. Until you read through what you’ve just written so far and discover it’s basically all near-unintelligible nonsense.

23. And you hand over your paper like:

24. You’re practically already halfway towards the door when the invigilator tells your row to stand up.

25. And refuse to enter into any conversations about what has just transpired.

26. Because in the end all that’s left to do is to be thankful it’s all over…

27. And wait for your results. 😅😭
