8 Intriguingly Crazy Things Students Do Before Exams

8 Crazy Things Students Do Before Exams
Every time we hear the word 'EXAM', it sends a chill down our spines. We all have our own memories with exams. There are some sincere students who start studying beforehand, and are relaxed during the exams. Then there is this other lot who relax the entire year, and end up doing some crazy things just before exams.

Make a Timetable

The first and foremost thing most students do is make a timetable. They decide what to study when, and waste most of the day making that timetable, which probably they don't even follow eventually.

Collect Study Material

Some students over estimate themselves and start collecting all the books and study material available on this planet to prepare for their exams, only ending up confused and panicked. Students fail to understand that they aren't superheroes who can mug up everything in just one day.
Stare at the Wall

Suddenly, everything else becomes interesting a day before the exams, even staring at the wall. Now, you may argue that they might be thinking something. Absolutely not. Their minds are usually blank without any thoughts in it.
Contact Friends

Students try to get in touch with friends whom they do not even talk very often, asking how much of the portion they are done with.
Sometimes, this acts as a boost, if they are ahead of their friends. But God forbid, if they hear that their friend is revising the syllabus, then, BOOM! Panic starts, followed by regret.
Watch Television

Students start taking breaks in between their studies. Mind you, those breaks are mostly after 15 minutes of studying.
Once the break starts, it only ends after they have watched two-three TV series. Suddenly, realization dawns, and they get back to their studies, only to come out again after 15 minutes.
Overeat

Eating or overeating, as you may like it. Suddenly, even the diet-conscious lot start eating like big time hogs. Lots of stress eating and then sleep, something which many students do before their exams.
Pray

Now that they realize that they have wasted their whole day doing nothing, they turn to God, their last resort. Making all kinds of prayers and negotiating all that can be traded with Him to help them pass the exams.

Tired of Studying
Regret

Now they ponder upon how they could have studied earlier and avoided all the exam panic they are going through.
They wonder how they should have focused on studying rather than hanging out with friends. And then they decide, from the next semester, they will definitely start studying beforehand, which obviously doesn't happen either.
