Whoever said that the holiday season is the “most wonderful time of the year,” is clearly not in University or College what comes before the holidays for students is definitely not “wonderful.” Exam season is, without a doubt, the most stressful time of the year.

Tensions are high, coffees are plentiful, procrastination is real and the breakdowns are frequent. It’s hard to take on exam season in a way that will protect your mental health and your GPA.

Just remember, exam time does end and is celebrated by spending a lot of time with friends, family and a whole lot of food.

Without a doubt, these are the stages students can count on going through every single year around exam time:

Your exam is days away — you deserve some you time.
