Thanks for sharing!
Getting started with automated testing is hard because it often requires a lot of environmental setup. It also challenges your viewpoint and - at least that's what I experience - it requires you to think about the problem domain much more (edge-cases, what can go wrong etc.)
Keep going, give yourself the time you need and be compassionate to yourself.
And good luck for your exams! :)
