  5. "Using statistical mechanics..."
  6. Every time you see an organic question
  7. ...followed by
  8. Trying to figure out whether or not you should skip a question
  9. When you think you know the answer and then you look at the choices and your answer's not there
  10. Every time you see a biochem question
  11. When the person sitting behind you won't stop coughing
  12. When you realize you've only done 33 questions in the first hour

  14. When the proctor glances at you after you whisper "what the actual fuck" a little too loudly
  15. Trying to remember all the thermodynamics equations you stashed somewhere deep in your brain
  16. When the good lord comes through for you and gives you a streak of 3 easy questions

  22. TWO PAGES OF QUESTIONS LEFT AND YOU HAVE TO AT LEAST SEE ALL OF THEM
  23. AND YOU HAVEN'T EVEN GONE BACK TO CHECK THE ONES YOU SKIPPED AND MAKE SURE YOUR ANSWERS ARE BUBBLED IN CORRECTLY
  24. LAST PAGE AND ALL THE QUESTIONS ARE EASY
  25. YOU HAVE TWO MINUTES TO DOUBLE CHECK ALL 130 QUESTIONS ON YOUR SCANTRON
