A DAY BEFORE THE EXAMINATION
Examinations are the most dreadful activity in the life of a student. He always shrinks back from the examination. He looks pale, sunken, having a long face especially in the month of March because it is the month of annual examination and the result of his whole year depend on them.
The students look worried and anxious as the examinations draw near. The day before the examination is horrible for them. They are busy on revising the main points. They do not feel hunger. They take no interest in recreational items. They try to cram, some important questions. The more they read, the more they forget. They feel nervous and confused. They burn the midnight oil for preparing themselves for the examination. Even after learning a lot, they feel quite blank.
They seek divine help and pray to God to help them pass the examination. Every student whether he is bright or dull, fears from the examination. They leave seeing movies, watching TV. They do not have sound sleep on the night before the examination. In fact, fear of the examination hangs so heavy on their mind that they do not have even a wink of sleep throughout the night.
They are puzzled. Those students who adopt unfair means in the examination are busy in preparing short slips with answers on them. They take these slips into the examination hall and use them whenever they get an opportunity. Anyhow most of the students feel that their memory is failing. Their young faces look tired as a result of worries and over studies.
