The tension leading up to May and June for almost every student and teacher is intense every single year.
You can almost hear like a buzz at school – ‘Revision’, ‘GCSE’, ‘A Levels’, ‘Grades’, ‘Fail’, ‘Success’, are all whispered around you and the general tempo of the school speeds up tenfold into a whirl of people running around (sometimes literally) from revision session to exam, to revision session to exam. My GCSEs are next year, but this year in June we had ‘mock week’, and it was my first experience of being in the near center of this mad rush. Before I had managed to observe it from the outside, but this time I got sucked in, and finally discovered why everyone becomes so stressed during this period.
