The most dreaded part of the semester? Final exams. They’re long, they’re exhausting, and they’re tough – but take comfort in the fact that you’re not alone. We all understand the stages of taking a final exam. In fact, we’ve even highlighted it below with the help of some gifs.

Keep scrolling and get ready to say, “Yep, that’s me.”
