Have you ever felt that exams are a burden? Yes? Well, I am the type of student who studies one day before the exams, no matter what subject it is!


My experiments with last minute exam prep


In our school, there is a study holiday for each subject. The first exam is usually math and of course, it is too challenging. After I finish writing my exam, I usually think “Tomorrow is social exam which has 30 lessons so after going home I have to start studying.”

But actually, after I come home I think, “Let me sleep for a while and then continue.”

Then I end up waking up at 6 pm in the afternoon, sip a cup of coffee and start to study.

When I am studying, my younger brother watches TV so I decide to postpone my studies to the next morning and happily watch TV with him. The next morning at 9 am, I have a glance at the mobile and then I roam here and there, after eating lunch I again sleep. Then I wake up at 6 pm and open the book.

That’s when I start to panic thinking “Why didn’t I study earlier?” I get into the toughest questions at night and study the easiest questions in the morning.

Before going to school, I revise all the questions and pray to god to get above 85 marks. Then I rush to school with nervousness. And when we students are sitting in exam hall, we pray to God like anything!

Then the results come and I usually manage to get a 2nd rank so I am happy but perhaps I would be happier if I study everyday without laziness! That’s the goal I want to achieve!
