So I'm trying to study for a programming assignment I have tomorrow, and I've set myself up in a quiet room of the house where I usually study. 
I can sort of hear a slight buzz and thought it might be the fridge but its too far away, and noticed it was coming from the macbook charger.

This MacBook was purchased maybe 3 months ago, not even that I think. Its the 2012 one, 13". Its quite loud when I put my ear to it and I've never noticed it doing that before. Can anyone else see if their charger does this?

I cant have this right now because its on 35% and I use this to take all my notes and stuff from uni too. No charger is the last thing I need, aside from a fail on this paper I suppose too.

Did you get an answer for this?

Are you are talking about a Magsafe charger with the L-shaped connector and not the later Magsafe 2 that are coming out in newer models? I've got the Magsafe which I believe is the 65W model that came with a 13" MacBook Pro in late 2011 / early 2012. In any case, it's reasonably quiet here late at night and I had to hold mine up to my ear to hear any sound. If it were me I'd take it back to apple (or wherever you get it from) and ask about getting a replacement.
