Why Do We Mess Up Exams?

Let’s use simple mathematics to break it down:

  • A year has 365 days for you to study.
  • After taking away 52 Sundays, there are only 313 days left.
  • There are 50 days in the summer, during which time it is way too hot to work, so there are only 263 days left.
  • We sleep 8 hours a day meaning that, in a year, that counts up to 122 days, so now we’re left with 141 days.
  • If we fooled around for only 1 hour a day, 15 days are gone, so we are left with 126 days.
  • We spend 2 hours eating each day, 30 days are used in this way in the year, and we are left with 96 days in our year.
  • We spend 1 hour a day speaking to friends and family, that takes away 15 days more and we are left with 81 days.
  • Exams and tests take up at least 35 days in your year, hence you are only left with 46 days.
  • Taking off approximately 40 days of holidays, you are only left with 6 days.
  • Say you are sick for a minimum of 3 days, you’re left with 3 days in the year to study!
  • Let’s say you only go out for 2 days! You are left with 1 day!

But that 1 day is your birthday, so… Good luck to everyone on your exams.
