"What work do students have? You need not work in shine and rain. Just study and study. That's all," my mom used to tell me.
What work do students have? Just to study and to pass the examination.
|Me: Should I touch it? Its human carcass in Dissection Hall.|
But that is the most difficult thing in student's life. We do not put physical effort but mentally we do a lot. Examination is the nightmare for every students. I was of the view that Examination for the college students would not be as tough as in the school. But I am proved wrong. Endless theories and clueless practicals eats half of our brain. Recently, I did my University Examination and I had tough time. I was with cup of coffee and dozens of books on my table. As I dozed off, I downpour the coffee, it did good job to keep me awake. My eyes were closing and head dropping towards the pillow but, the thought of exam wake me up. I still feel the hangover.
My friends too underwent pathetic condition. Eyes sunken into the socket, have no time to comb their hair, slept on the bed half covered by the books, endless buzz of alarm clocks and friends waking their friends. I felt like we are doing Police Duty when I have to wake up because my friend want to sleep so that I can wake him up exactly after one hour. College became pressure cooker. That was horrible!
|In Classroom: can't explain what is there inside, just the cover reading.|
During Examination my friend noticed something interesting. Hope it would be interesting for you all too? Firstly, we study whole text books thoroughly, then we make the notes to make it easy. Still, we make summarized notes for quick reference during the eleventh hour. What we realized is that, we even didn't finish reading (not studying) those highly condensed notes. When I am writing the examination, I just have to write whatever I learnt during one year within a short three hours in less than 50 pages. Everything goes on dwindling. After the exam, none of the theories remain in our head.
|When we don't read the book, book reads us.|
If so, what good is examination going to do? We must understand that we have to learn more than what is required in Examination. We need to prepare ourselves to face the examination of our life. Life does not come with instruction, we must make it happen.
We did our best, may God do the rest.
