The sight of worried students waiting outside UCL clutching sheafs of cramming notes as HuffPost Students casually strolled to work with a morning coffee in hand quickly brought the terror of exams back into sharp focus.

Many will be thinking of the injustice of it all - the sun finally comes out after what seems like aeons but the hard work indoors is just beginning as students look to discovering the best ways of keeping their minds focused and panic levels down in the weeks ahead.

But what are those best ways? Are exams just something to get through with the thought of a long hot summer to keep you going or can you really keep your mind sharp and nerves unfrayed while others lose theirs around you?

In the spirit of revision and solidarity, we set out on Twitter to find out from students just how they were getting on with their chores. We received plenty of responses which must mean they've not really got their minds on the job in hand, tsk, tsk.

Read some of the best tweets in the slideshow below and if you have more suggestions, tweet @HPUKStudents.
