Dude, the NaNoWriMo is a slog and a half BY ITSELF. And you want to do that WHILE STUDYING FOR EXAMS???

You're absolutely crazy if you think it's even remotely feasible. I'd wait a year, or just do it in December instead, when exams aren't an issue

I guess... but I don't want to break my streak ;)... what about starting after the last exam??

It's you life, live how you want to. But do you honestly think you can write 50,000 words in 5 days? Including the planning of the story and everything? If the answer to that is yes - there's nothing we can reasonably do to convince you otherwise, so not much point asking us if you think it's possible, unless you subconsciously want us to talk you out of it - but that's on you, not us.

I would say try it but don't put too much pressure on yourself if you don't make the target. I think it's useful for having a creative outlet in times like this.  It's worth it especially if you view writing a break from studying. It's important that you make time for your self. It might even relieve stress too. I'd say it's possible as long as you make time for it without it affecting your studies. The only reason not to do it is for the sole purpose of continuing that streak or if it becomes another stress in your life.
