block exams; a modern-day method of torture developed by a panel of adults who believe that they know best. block exams consist of several subjects' exams in a row (maths, english, history etc.) with a break between each one. block exams last for anywhere between 2 days and 2 weeks, and usually cause mass stress and panic in students. social life is impossible during this time, as all student's free time will be spent trying to learn a whole semester's worth of work (of which half probably wont be needed anyway). most block exams start at the age of 16, although some mean-spirited schools will start at the young age of 15.
