Two days in between........ a memory
August 3, 2017 10:58pm CST
Be it school or college we students would breathe a sigh of relief when there was a two day gap between exams. The last minute mugging is what we did during these two days and were quite relaxed to give our exams hoping that we did not draw a blank after looking at the paper. Have you ever drawn a blank? This discussions was triggered by news that these days exams are held back to back. Anything you have to share.

During an important exam I dozed off, in fact, I lost quite a chunk of time. The invigilator touched my shoulder and brought me back to harsh reality! I was rather naive and did not sleep properly the previous day. That proved a wake up call as I made sure that I would never be that foolish again. I did manage to pass the exam though - siva
@vsai2008 All this after Amit Shah took over.He is a criminal himself but he is well protected. I just cannot stand him. He is making full use of the powers and has pocketed the ED, the CBI and the Police. This is an extremely dangerous trend for the country.
Exams these days are very stressful and seems to be the only priority for most governments. They push the teachers fo focus on that piece of paper more than actually teaching the children. Parents also don't see the progress their children make over time, but only notice if they get a bad grade. That adds extra stress to the students.
@allknowing some subjects are always needed, like language, math, home economics etc, but you are right, some things are totally waste of time. I am actually thinking not to teach history at all to my kids (aaaah, the pleasures of homeschooling ).

It was a big relief if there used to be gap between two exams. Back to Back exams could be very taxing and stressful. I remember in my class XII Board exams there were two back to back exams without even a single holiday. Next day when we discussed about preparation (before the beginning of exam), it came to our knowledge that there were some studious students who studied till wee hours to prepare for the exam and did not take a break while preparing for the exam, except dinner break.

Nothing. Lol! Of course! Exams are scheduled by different teachers, different subjects, and different departments, all at the end of a semester. The students may or may not luck out by having more time to prepare, but a good student only needs a quick review.

I do not remember ever delivering a blank. Only in middle school, math test, I can not remember what were the circumstances. However, in a white sheet, the teacher wrote to me "task is not done! Rating: severely inadequate!"
