The 6 Classic Students You Meet At Your Exam Results Party

University Student Jobs Funny Exams

Students are finally rid of January exams, but a new term is upon them. We've collated the post-exam attitudes honed by students during the weeks that follow...

After the stressful exam period, familiar faces on campus may have become almost unrecognisable. Whether exams took their toll on your fellow students' work attitudes or revision eating took its toll on their fitness, here are a few students you'll meet in the weeks after exams.


1. The Unashamed Bragger

When people say "I'm so worried about results," they just smile. These guys took perfect notes throughout the semester. Revision plans were in full swing by mid-November leaving them to enjoy a guilt-free Christmas dinner and a smug New Year.

2. The One Who Can't Even

Exams were a test of how little they knew. They realised their dreams of a First disappeared when their near empty exam paper was snatched by the invigilator. You'll probably find them in the library, trying to reform themselves with their head buried in a stack of books.

3. The Phantom

Similar to number 2, these people are also trying to reform themselves. Last term, they were the ones whose names would always be called out on the register to no avail, but this year they're turning over a new leaf. You'll find them sitting at the front in every seminar and lecture.

4. The Indifferent Maniac

They'll attend every club night in town, replace lectures and seminars with sleep, and then spend loads of their loan on pointless items that they'll never use. If you catch someone doing all of the above, it's because they know they've failed - well, they might as well make the most of it, right? After results day, you'll never see them again.

5. The Former Stress Eater

These are the people who demolished a packet of biscuits per hour of revision. They didn't have time to cook proper meals so their dinner of choice was pot noodles or takeaway. You'll find them speed walking to lectures in gym clothes then leaving early to grab the running machine before anyone else.

6. The One Who Just Wants a Beer

There was one thing on their mind throughout that last exam - it's time to get drunk. You probably won't have seen these students on campus; you'll just know they still exist by their numerous club photos on Facebook.
