Probably what you should be doing right now...

Instead you come here to procrastinate.

what I haven't done enough of this weekend
Louise is useless at revision

Modern day method to waste time and 'recap' over all those topics you've been 'learning' all year usually in preparation for a text or exam. For most students, resulting in no help whatsoever when sitting the test the next day.

Thus student failing test anyway because revising is innefective due to student thinking about their crush/dinner/myspace/friends for the duruation of the revision period whilst blankly reading through text and making notes they will later misplace.
''But didn't you do any revision? why have you gotten this U again Eleanor?''

''I just dont know.''

Sitting and reading the crap you've been learning all year and taking none of it in, so you can do just as bad on whatever exam you're revising for as you would have done without it.
Mum: How did you get this U? I thought you did revision?

Tom: But I did mum! I did..
