Over the last 12 months, COVID has turned the world as we know it upside down. And yep, that includes the way we hit up school, study and even sit exams.

While for some Year 12s things are pretty normal – school, study, repeat – loads of the country are in and out of lockdown with students encouraged to log in remotely.

Schools and universities in affected areas are swapping their physical campuses for digital-led classrooms, upping their eLearning offerings and engaging with students online. And if you’re in Year 12 and about to sit your trial HSC exams? Chances are you’re navigating the process of sitting them from home.

Here are our favourite TikTok reactions to bunkering down and studying in a world that’s battling a global pandemic. What a time, right?
