In order to “celebrate” the test/exam season students are trapped in, I happened to note down every single awkward instance of writing a test/exam. This was lying in my drafts for nearly 1/4th a month so far, and I decided to publish it, ’cause why not? Comment below which ones you can relate to the most, and if you have any more situations to add. I can’t wait to hear from y’all. Enjoy reading these all-too-real points!
#1. When 85% of the exam is based on that ONE topic you decided to skip.
#2. Dealing with the extreme betrayal of your teacher, because nothing makes sense in the question paper.
#3. The mind games that MCQs and True or False questions entrap you in.
#4. The panic that settles in when you accidentally bring the TV remote instead of a calculator to an exam.
#5. That one friend who says they didn’t study anything, but you catch them asking for extra sheets.
#6. When the teacher decides to stand next to/behind you while casually reading your answers.
#7. Not knowing the meaning of a particular word, and so you decide to change the whole sentence while writing a composition/essay.
#8. Your brain refusing to co-operate with you during exams, and it decides to shuffle play all your favourite songs.
#9. Spending 90% of the time thinking, “What is this new devilry?!” or “Is this some kind of Elvish? I can’t read it!” (Cookies for those who guessed these Easter Eggs correctly 😜)
#10. Doubting yourself and then deciding to change the correct answer immediately.
#11. When everyone’s on Part 2 of the exam, but you’re still stuck on Question 2.
#12. Deciding to skip a tough question, but then seeing the next question being based on the one you skipped.
#13. Having that irrational fear of being stuck in a time warp during the exams.
#14. Being faster than a supersonic jet during the last 5 minutes of an exam.
#15. Thinking you’ve done well on the exam and going around telling everyone it was easy, but then have your hopes crushed by some unexpected results (a.k.a me when I saw my Physics and Chemistry mid- term results 😅😶).
Until then, fellow readers! Silver’s out for the week.
