It's That Time Of The Year Again!

My exams are beginning from Tuesday and they shall end on the 22nd of August.

You may find it strange but I actually enjoy writing exams because during exams, I have to be in college for only three hours and then I am free for the day! The thought of going back home and having to study for the next exam does not appear to be scary nor exhausting to me!

I am a very lazy girl and a big-time procrastinator! There have been times when I have started studying for an exam only a few hours before and gone to the exam-hall simply hoping for the best! Being blessed with a good memory and always having luck by my side, I have generally ended up doing well!
By stating this, I do not mean to say that I have never made up answers nor am I saying that there has never been a time when I blanked out after reading a question-paper!

"A student who changes the course of history is probably taking an exam".

This is an oft-quoted sentence and I feel all of us, when we were students, have ended up indulging in creative-writing when we had absolutely no idea what kind of answer the question demanded! Some succeed in guessing a few relevant points while others fail miserably! Once you come out of the examination-hall, it is often entertaining when you hear some answers your class-mates came up with...

Though examination-time is believed to be the most stressful time in a student's life, I do not really think so. Contrary to popular belief, I feel that cramming up just a few hours before the exam does improve your grade as most of us tend to focus more under pressure!

I may be inactive for sometime from this space! However I hope that your best wishes will be with me - I hope to do well this time too!

THANKS FOR SO VIVIDLY REMINDING ME OF MY OWN EXAM DAYS. I WAS GIFTED WITH A PHENOMENAL MEMORY, SO GRADUATED CUM LAUDE. BUT I REMEMBER ONCE I WROTE ON A TEST, "I DO NOT KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS ONE, BUT LET ME DISCUSS SOMETHING ELSE." THE INSTRUCTOR GAVE ME AN "A". SO, TRY ANYTHING. I DO NOT DOUBT YOU WILL DO WELL: YOU SEEM TO BE ONE REMARKABLE YOUNGSTER. BLOW A KISS TO THE BIRDS, AND WHISPER TO THE FLOWERS ...

@Pramoda
Yes - it is even more fun if you have gaps between exam else things can be slightly stressful :P but exams are fun - especially the writing part and the group-study sessions...

@Stephen

Such exams are good for certain kinds of learners and terrible for others. They really don't necessarily show competency in a subject, the passion of person taking the test for the subject matter or give any indication of the persons future professional success in the field.

Hi Lee!
I know - when one isn't prepared, exams can be torturous! Exams don't always test us on how much we know and more on how much we have been able to recapitulate after sitting with the books one whole night :D but one still needs to do well as your future depends on the exam-results!
