There's not a single person on the planet who's taken part in standardised testing and doesn't have an exam room horror story.

But we think Ann Mark's tale of woe from her first-ever college exam experience might well be top of the class.

From not having the proper equipment to walking into a window, the 19-year-old University of Texas student has bared her soul and told her story in a heartwarming video that's unsurprisingly gone viral - having now been seen by more than 8 million people and counting.

Setting the tone of the video, she begins: "I just wanted to let you know how my first real college final was... oh my God!"

And the rest, well, it needs to be watched to appreciate the real gravitas.

Oh, Ann Mark. In this video, you are all of us, and all of us are you.

The story isn't without a happy ending, though. She managed to get to her exam, write an essay about Napoleon Dynamite (obviously), and scored a 77 on her final, leaving her with a "solid-average" of 81%.

Oh, and although Ann got a licensing agreement in the wake of the video, she told Fox 7 in Austin that she plans to donate the profits to a homeless shelter in Los Angeles.

Merry Christmas Ann and enjoy the holiday break. You've earned it.
