You know exam fever is started in NUI Galway when:
1) First year medical students sit for their first paper
2) There is no enough seat in James Hardiman's Library and the Reading Room, the school has to open a huge number of lecture halls and classes for student to do self study.
Yep. This is the time of the year when, once you find a desk in the library or the reading room, you will never leave except to do some businesses in le toilet and to eat hehee (and of course Muslims, dont forget to perform your pray).
