Hey guys! First of all, I am SO SO SO SO SO SORRY! I haven’t posted in 20 days…Eek! I feel so guilty and apologetic and I am so sorry. But the thing that kept me away, and that I am now free from( for now).. are…EXAMS! My last post ( apart from an award) was actually Revision Tips, where I were telling you all about how to ace your exams! Unfortunately, since then, I have actually (alongside rest of students worldwide), we had to actually do the exams. That turned out to be…Well…Don’t even get me started😡😵!
On Thursday, I had 7 exams: 3 French papers, 3 maths papers and 1 geography paper. On top of that, I also had a grading test in my martial arts class. You can probably guess tensions were pretty high. My stress levels were through the roof (understandably) and I just wanted the day to be over and done with. And when I finally came home after my grading test, I felt so happy. So relieved. I still had an English exam the next day, but in that moment, it didn’t matter. And I think it might be worth mentioning that I was just giving end-of-year 8 exams, nothing hugely important. So just imagine how Year 11s felt after their GCSEs.
Another thing that me and many of my friends noticed was how irritable we were, and how our eating and sleeping habits changed a lot. It affected us in ways we didn’t realise until afterwards when we went back to our usual habits.
I’m not really too sure what this post was about; I just wanted to apologise and get back into the swing of posting again, but I hope I have also given you a little insight into how students globally feel about their exams, but I can guarantee nothing can replicate the nerves you’ll feel. So if you know anyone currently taking exams, forgive them for being a bit stressy and leave them chocolate! Or just food in general. Every little helps. Trust me…..
