We know that exams look very different this year. But whether you’re packed into a crowded Zoom room, or an actual room, there are certain things that make exams exams. Late night studying, cue cards, highlighters, pizza delivery, setting two alarms to make sure you get up after marathon study sessions, and of course, therapy dogs.
We’ve created some custom Zoom backgrounds sourced from Old McGill yearbooks to help you feel connected to campus while studying for exams, writing them or partaking in a virtual pep talk.
Consider this our way of cheering you on. You got this!
