From the initial stress of realizing you have an exam coming up, to the panic that sets in during all-nighters at the library, to the unstoppable anxiety that washes over you when you step into the exam room, exams can be a rough time. But there is a silver lining to this storm cloud, and that is that in a few short weeks, your exams will be over and you’ll be free to have an awesome summer!
