Exam Time Photo Competition!

BubblesGoesBooBubblesGoesBoo Sunny ScotlandPosts: 3,590 Community Veteran
So a lot of people are doing there exams this month and next so this just seems like the perfect time for another photo competition!

The topic is...

What gets you through exam time?

it's quite a broad topic but that's part of the fun! :P This can literally mean anything, something that helps you revise, treats you give yourself once you have revised, quiet place or activity to calm you down during this stressful time, or even a party or something that's planned for after exams! :)

And like the Easter one there is a prize to be won! :)

Ps ... Good luck to everyone doing exams!

    Attachment not found. revising like my life depends on it.. its not great..but I have music playing on my kindle quietly as it helps me stay focus. Bottle of water to keep me hydrated.. I have a bowl of strewberries and grapes too to munch on when I need it. Colour highlighters and sticky notes help as I can stick them around my room and create check lists... work book is my bible...along with the EYFS and case study haha.... doubt this is the point of this photo thingy but hey....music water and fruit helps me revise my life away

    Haha Flow, I thought I had the best picture from last year, but I think you win! Mine was much the same but slightly less paper and more mess!

    Here are all the things that keep me going. I do 15 minutes revision and then I listen to one song (headphones), when I've written up a whole topic in flashcards I practise some sign language (BSL book), when I need to clear my head I write a flue piece (manuscript paper + flute), I bake myself something every few days as a treat to snack on, and I collect blue nose friends and nail varnish. After every exam I'm going to buy myself something new for a collection.
