Just a quick question - hasn't affected me that much but has affected people close to me.
I personally have experienced deterioration in physical health (put on 3kg in the space of a week and half), and some deterioration in mental health (sleeping less and with a weird cycle, a great desire to procrastinate etc).
Post your thoughts below.

You put on weight because you eat more than you burn. thats what you get from being sat on your backside a lot and not controlling what you eat.
Exams can be stressful, not everyone manages stress very well.
People eat more than they burn in other aspects of life.
People experience stress in other areas, not enough money, high pressure jobs, unhappy relationships, children, homelessness etc.

Exam season is a terrible time for me. I have Asperger's syndrome and all the changes in routine are really stressful and exhausting- i.e not having regular classes, writing answers in rooms I've not been in before etc.. I've had problems with depression and anxiety since 2012, a lot of it relating to worrying about exams and grades. At the moment I spend a huge amount of time worrying about what will happen if I don't meet the entry requirements. I often end up feeling stupid/useless etc and that I'll let myself and other people down if I don't get those grades. This stress then leads to me being tired and depressed, making it a lot harder to study.
