Exam Time is the sixth episode of the second series of The Inbetweeners. It first aired on May 7th, 2009 on E4.


The boys are facing exams: Will is overworking himself and relying on energy drinks to keep him going; Simon is ignoring his revision and helping his crush, Carli, revise Sociology; Jay is smitten by his new girlfriend Chloe and Neil is preparing for his exam in PE by playing Pro Evolution Soccer.

During the first revision session Carli tells Simon that she and Tom have split up, which leads them to share numerous kisses at the next session and Carli accepts the invitation to join Simon and the rest of the gang at the nearby pub for a post-exam celebratory drink. Simon rushes to tell Will - only to be shunned by his friend, who is cracking under the pressure of the looming exams. Jay is advised to make sure he always knows where Chloe is, and he begins texting her on a regular basis. The final exams come and both Simon and Jay are too distracted with their love lives to do any work on the paper. With all of the energy drinks he has taken in, Will begins to develop stomach trouble, and, to his horror, he poos his pants during the last exam.

The boys go to the pub without Will and as they get the drinks in, Will turns up wearing some tracksuit bottoms from lost property and not caring about the exams and how he likely failed them; instead he begins drinking pints of lager. Both Simon and Jay get dumped by their respective girls, with Carli announcing she has got back together with Tom and Chloe saying Jay is too sensitive for her, and the boys drive off thinking up new nicknames for Will (such as "The Bum-log Millionaire", "Doctor Poo", "Shitty Shitty Bang Bang" and "Brad Shit"); now unarguably the biggest "saddo" in school.
