Awaiting exam results can be stressful

Posted on Updated on

August can be stressful as you await your exam results

  • Did you do enough revision?
  • How lenient will they be with the marking?
  • Did you read the question correctly or skim it and make some stupid mistake?

Maybe you should have just stolen the exam paper!

Well, no, in real life you shouldn’t. But for an escape room adventure that’s just what we were asked to do.

An Eccentric Professor’s Final Exams

On a trip to Madrid we tried out the escape room “Exit Madrid”. Luckily the game was available in English as well as Spanish.

We played The Lab, a medium to high level game that was created in 2010. Our mission was to steal an exam paper from our lecturers office because we’d been partying rather than revising. Would we find the paper and discover what´s on Prof. Calm´s next exam?

As with other escape rooms, this one starts by locking you in a room, where you can only escape if you complete the mission. We were given 66 minutes to complete it and were warned that 45% of the teams don’t succeed in escaping the room at EXIT Game Madrid. 

Result!

Pleased to say that, with a few hints from the Games Master, we completed the mission with nearly 3 minutes to spare.
