5 Ways to Distract Yourself from Impending Exam Results... | CityBlock

So, we’re sure you don’t need any more reminders about what day tomorrow is. Sure, the 13th may be unlucky for some, but we’ve got all our fingers and toes crossed, wishing you the best of luck for the much dreaded, A-Level results day. But for now, you’ve still got a whole day to get through before you get to tear open that envelope of dreams and find out where you’ll be spending the next 3-4 years. So, instead of spending the day twiddling your thumbs and trying to ignore the pit in your stomach, why not distract yourself with some of these nifty websites?

When You Need a Laugh


If you’ve ever tried Reddit and found the whole layout a bit too much, Imgur is the site for you! With all the best pics from the front page, plus a load more from ‘imgurians’, as they affectionately call themselves, you could spend your whole day clicking ‘next’!

When You Need to Put Things into Perspective

BBC Space

While you’re waiting for what may be the biggest moment of your life to date, you might want to put things into perspective. Try scrolling through this addictive BBC Space Race to make yourself feel tiny, and hopefully, those exam worries will fade away!

When You Just Need Cats


Sometimes, all you need to keep you distracted is an endless stream of cat gifs, and the Procatinator definitely delivers! With more cat gifs than you can shake a stick at, and the best songs to accompany, you could spend the whole day in this little corner of the internet.

When You Need to Numb Your Mind


Make sure you turn your speakers up for this one! This highly addictive game challenges you to ‘Find the Invisible Cow’ as a voice shouts “cow” at you, getting louder as you get closer. Be warned, this game can cause hours of your day to be completely lost!

When You Need a Bit of Everything


We bet you never knew just how many completely and utterly useless websites there are on the web! Well, The Useless Web has brought them all together for your browsing pleasure, so whether you want to watch a pug lick your screen or make it rain with cats, this site has got something for everyone!

Now, while these websites might help you fill some time while you’re waiting, they’re not exactly productive. So, why not spend your day checking out the CityBlock website where you can spend your hours looking at the best student accommodation in Lancaster and student accommodation in Reading  – we’ve even got a few rooms left, so you can start planning where you’ll be living!

We wish you all the best of luck for results day, and we can’t wait to see some of you in September!
