First year student tells everyone to stop being so boring during exam time

A first-year law student has appealed for his fellow students to stop being so boring during exam time.

Cardiff French and Law student, Benjamin McNeil has appealed for students to be less boring during exams, telling students everywhere "don’t be boring, you can still go on nights out during exams".

He even suggested tips on how to turn revision into drinking games, so you don't have to learn about Tort Law or complex medical procedures whilst sober.

"Never have I ever intended to be bound by a statement that was only a reflection of my negotiating position"

Benjamin explained that exam time was the perfect time to go to clubs, as there's nobody in there taking up space that could be used for your dance moves, he wrote in The Tab.

And "there’s no need for queue-jump when there’s no queue" he points out. He suggests that if your friends aren't up for the club, you can trick them into being more entertaining by turning revision into a drinking game.

"If you’re searching for ways to include your more studious – cough, boring – friends, you can even turn classic drinking games into 'revision tools’" he explained.

"Replace your deck of cards with court cases, complex medical terms, or equations and you’ve got the foundations for the kind of drinking games that your lecturers would be proud of."

"Never have I ever intended to be bound by a statement that was only a reflection of my negotiating position," can now be a sentence to get all your law friends drunk, for example.

"It’s an opportunity to make the phrase 'I’m fucked for exams' a very literal one."

The first-year student pointed out that there's "nothing wrong" with going out during exam time and that it "even has some perks"

"Dancing is easier when the clubs aren’t full of pissheads to whom the words ‘personal space’ means nothing, and you’re less likely to feel like a battery-farmed bird when you approach the bar where, for once, you can relax."

He also (dubiously) claimed that pulling is easier during exam season, because everyone is looking for the same thing:

"Pulling, too, is easier now because everyone’s looking for the same thing. Nobody finds themselves in [a nightclub] at 3am the Tuesday before their Stats exam if they’re not hoping for a de-stress bang to clear their head."

"It’s an opportunity to make the phrase 'I’m fucked for exams' a very literal one."

"After a night of passions with your partner of choice, you can sneak out guilt-free, knowing that you’ll both be up in three hours to try and scrape 40%. So really, what makes pre-exam drinking so bad?"
