Our expert says:
Its unfortunate i your bf is so immature and insecure that he needs sroking and re-assurance at a time when it's obvious to anyone you need and deserve time to yourself for your studies.
Its not a question of lying, but being truthful in a kindly way - say you absolutely, above all, need this time to yourself to concentrate on your studies right now, and can't allow yourself to miss or worry about anyone else, and you're sure he is mature enough and able to understand this and not expect you to affirm him during this brief but vital time.
If he takes offense, then he is too immature and insecure to have a seriously mature relationship with anyone. Don't let his self-pity intefere with your studies. When you have succeeded in your exams, meet him again and talk about how things are and will be. If he is still sulking, move on, and leave him to do some more growing up
