Exam time is probably the worst nightmare of every student. You find all kinds of individuals on exam day, the crazy, the selfish or the ones who are just plain stupid. All off them bring something unique to the table, for better or for worse.
Here are some of the students you must have come across during an exam.
1. The Nerdy Ones
They know the code to the mystery and hardship that is learning. If you ask them anything before the paper they would pull a Jon Snow on you, and as soon as the paper starts, they become the white walkers finishing the paper way ahead of time, increasing your frustration as they finish sheet after sheet after sheet of answers.
2. The Booti Master
This one probably has studied a somewhat decent amount or maybe not who cares, on exam day whatever the case they will have scribbled paper coming out of literally everywhere! And some of them also fulfill their tattoo fetish with covering their body in history notes, as the paper starts, the sleeves get rolled up and the party begins!
Special Mention: Peeps with two mobile phone, one to hand over and one for the shenanigans!
3. The man with a plan
This one always plans to study but somehow or the other due to extraneous circumstances the “plan” never goes accordingly! One night before, don’t be surprised if they call it an all- nighter without touching a single chapter. Then they’ll plan to wake up really early in the morning and finish the whole course in an hour, but they will oversleep.
4. Last Minute Junkies
They would start worrying 15 minutes before the paper, and would just start wandering from person to person to understand everything. They will settle for any answer or any booti of any sort. They will probably be scribbling till the very end simultaneously begging through their eyes for one correct answer, and they just might even produce a few tears as the invigilator comes to snatch the paper since it’s 20 minutes over the time.
5. The Red Cross
You find this person around the exam hall readily helping and answering everyone’s inquirers about the exam. They’re more worried about others prep, and are the true charitable person always coming in to help for the needy.
6. Invigilator’s friends
In the dynamics of extremely tough and utterly pointless examination, these ones are the chosen ones. Either they would know most of the paper or they would just leave some of it blank to be filled later when things are a little calm. They will use these tactics in all exams where the invigilator is a friend of theirs.
7. Paper hi kharab tha
From the inanimate to the living, everything has a vendetta against them. So they’re pretty much screwed or at least that’s what they claim. Whenever they do a bad paper, they will blame everyone except themselves.
8. The Couple
Well they’re in Love, and blindness holds no bounds – their better half would make sure he proves that at every step. He’ll go to any lengths to make sure she passes, khud chahe fail hi hoajein cheating karatay.
9. The Average Students
They’re not stellar students, nor are they the worst. They’re somewhere in the middle. They’re not that panicked nor too sure. They’ll confirm one MCQ here and there but that’s about it. Yeah they’re pretty boring.
10. The Fierce Ones
They come in packs, putting late nighters together and then fighting for who does the best. As soon as your paper ends they’ll ask everyone how they did and ask about that one annoying question, and throw it on everyone’s face about how they did it right. They’ll probably be having a longer discussion on the paper itself then the original paper, after the exam.
11. The New Faces
Where we had the nerds, we also have the nothings. They’re from a breed of their own, you don’t see them most of the year but they show up at paper time, they really don’t know anything but they don’t disturb any one either – they just want to fail in peace. They sometimes even leave before the Jedis do, but for a completely different reason.
And here you are, just an average joe. You studied for the exam but till the last minute you felt maybe something’s still not done. Do you remember that theory well enough? Shit, you can’t recall that third step in it. Oh damn, you’re screwed!! But maybe it won’t even be tested. Right?… Why is she holding that calculator, is there supposed to be a calculation based question? You did not bring a calculator! OH NO!!
Yeah you are the one who has too many thoughts running around your mind at exam time. Just remember CALM DOWN! And everything will be alright. It is just an exam.
