Maybe give yourself a break once a week or so to meet up, but she should really understand if you can't do more than that. If you give in and fail your exams, then you'll only end up resenting the friendship, leaving it in an even worse shape.
If you can, try and plan some amazing stuff for when you're all done.

That's a shame! I don't really understand the mentality behind it, I'd never give up on a good friend because of something like that. Case in point, my best friend had a baby a year ago, and can't get out as much as she used to. Sure I miss the old times we had, and I understand why it can never be the same, but I'd never have given up on a great friendship. True friends should be able to pick up where they left off if there has been a situation where one of them can't be as committed for a while.
I think you should call her, just to keep the lines of communication open, and to let her know that just because you have exams, it doesn't mean you can't be friends. Hopefully she'll come round. And if she doesn't...then maybe she's not really as good a friend as she could be!
