If you're in school, college or uni, the chances are that you're just mere weeks away from entering the living hell that is exam season. All socialising comes to an end, you don't bother showering anymore, you start to look a bit like a cave child and life in general just goes to pot really.
And now a new study by NCS has proved that it's not just you who finds the whole thing to be a total nightmare either, revealing some pretty shocking facts and figures about the impact of exam stress on teens. Agh.
The survey of 1,000 teenagers taking exams this summer showed a huge 78% expect exam stress to have a negative impact on their appearance, health or mental state in one way or another.
10% predicted that they'd be eating more or less than usual for example, while one in ten reckon they wouldn't even have time to shower or change their clothes, and one in five said they wouldn't be leaving the house for days. Not good.
The study also looked at teenagers' fave ways of procrastinating when they should be getting stuck into the books, revealing that on average, you usually concentrate on revision for around 38 minutes before getting distracted by something way more interesting.
And guess how much extra time you'll spend on social media over the six week period when you're procrastinating like a pro from revision? 43 BLOODY HOURS, apparently. Just get off Twitter, will ya?
It turns out that teens have some pretty crazy revision rituals they like to follow too, with the top ten big'uns including scoffing snacks, making songs to remember stuff and going HAM with the highlighters. Here's the top 10 that you're probably guilty of:
1.Rewarding yourself with snacks or treats (24%)
2.Highlighting way more than necessary (15%)
3.Reading everything out loud to yourself (15%)
4.Putting notes or post its around the house (10%)
5.Using exactly the same pen or certain colour ink every day (9%)
6.Writing notes in weird places (8%)
7.Exercising way more than usual (8%)
8.Using mindfulness or relaxation tools (7%)
9.Creating songs or raps to remember things (6%)
10.Only revising at certain times of the day e.g. 1 minute past the hour (5%)
Pretty crazy statistics, but at least you're not alone in being really crap at revision.
