Occasional Inspirations

For 2014, I decided to follow some of the 365 writing prompts given by The Daily Post. Check it out. It was recommended by a turtle (Don't ask.)

Exam Time!

You have two more weeks left until your major exam, a gigantic pile of revision books left untouched since the last exam, waiting to be read, and your mother breathing at your neck, nagging at you to study. No problem, you say to her. Just after you completed Level 21 in the brand new computer game you bought the other day.

Time flies very fast, and eleven days later, you're panicking, reading through hundreds of text books like crazy, cursing at the game for making Level 21 too hard and for wasting your time. How are you supposed to cover every single subjects in three days? You start to calculate:
- There are 9 to 10 subjects
- In each subject, there's 'bout seven to ten chapters
- Your major exam covers everything for the past three years
- So, the minimal number of number of subjects would be:
9x7x3= 189 chapters to revise

You suddenly wake up in the middle of the room three hours later after you fainted, wasting potential study time.

Now, you're sitting in the exam room, cursing silently at the seating arrangement; the ones surrounding you are dimwits. The death sentence in the form of exam papers arrive. The timer is set. An hour and a half left. You pass through the first few questions with relative ease. Then the godawful hard question pounces at you. It was from the chapters you didn't have time to revise in detail. You try to pick at your brain for answers, but nothing would come. You try to read people's mind, and send SOS signals to their brains, but it fails. You try your supervision to take a look at their answer sheets, but is blocked by the teachers. You decided to just 'tembak' at the question. The same scenario happens at most of the questions that came after that. And probably 4 of the exams you encounter during exam week.

When exam week ends, you snuggle up in you duvet, making a mental note to leave Level 21 aside next time exam's nearing.

Good luck to all PMR students! :D I've been through the dreaded moment last year, so I know how it feels. So, I don't have to say how easy it is, 'cos you guys won't believe me. I'll let you lear the hard way. Relax~! :D
