5 Ways to Celebrate The End of Exams

“Pens down”

by Louise Thomas

These two words are the sweetest you’ve ever heard. Or at least that’s how it feels when you finally close the page of your last exam paper.

We’ve finally reached the end of exam season and it’s time to celebrate! You have a few more precious weeks with your uni mates, before heading back to your boring hometown for the summer. Not sure how to make the most of your freedom? Well here are a few ideas…

1. Throw a house party

The obvious choice! Invite all your mates, find your best speakers and throw a massive party. If you’re feeling fancy you could even string up those fairy lights everyone has in their room and pour crisps into actual bowls (mum would approve). But beware the wrath of that housemate whose exams still haven’t finished…

2. Binge watch a series

If you’re one of the good ones who has spent the last six weeks in the library, you’ve got some binge watching to catch up on. Netflix releases a whole bunch of new titles on 1st June so throw on some lounge wear, grab some snacks and settle in.

3. Go on a road trip

Freedom is upon you so why not hit the road? Go for a weekend away or to see your home friends in other unis across the country. If it’s a long way, you can even make your mates share the driving with our Temporary Insurance. We’ve even got top tips on planning a road trip on a budget.

4. Catch up on sleep

Hands up if you’ve had too many late-night cramming sessions lately? 🙋‍♂️Not our favourite kind of sesh. Treat yourself and catch up on the many hours of sleep you’ve lost out on. Just remember to hang a “Do Not Disturb” sign on your door….

5. Hit the beach

What better way to de-stress than by listing to the sound of crashing waves and feeling the sand between your toes? It’s not quite your summer trip to Bali, but Britain has some excellent beaches. Why not borrow a mate’s car and head to Rhossili Bay for some water sports, or catch the train to Brighton Beach?

Hi I'm Louise and I'm a Marketing Executive at Veygo. I've been driving for nearly two years after several "practice" tests! I love the freedom that comes with finally having a driving licence. Road trips with my friends are the best - especially when we've got an awesome playlist going! (check out our Spotify for road trip playlists!)
