School: We don't want to stress you out during this exam period, so you are going to continue having normal classes at the same time as your exams.
Me: Uh, ok.
School: You will also have to write an essay that actually matters more than your exams, learn new topics, investigate Higher Education destinations, complete multiple Internal Assessment reports and do after school activities for Creativity, Action and Service hours.
Me: u wot m8
School: Oh and did I mention that you have exams too?
So that's why I am up at 4AM trying to get work done. And failing badly.
