2. You refuse to buckle down

In this procrastinating phase, everything else looks a hundred times more interesting than cracking out the books.

You start to panic a little upon realising that you’re lagging behind

4. You decide that, ok, it’s time to START MY ENGINES

5. You lay out your studying materials, draw up a timetable…

Game face ON

6. After a while you decide that you have accomplished SO MUCH!

Look at how much highlighting was done!

7. And so you deserve a break!

8. But soon, it’s back to the books you go!

9. Argh, so torturous

10. You feel more anxious day by day

11. But on exam day there’s this eerie sense of calm

Nothing more you can do now. You’ve given your all.

14. What you think you’ll do after the exam
