Board exams in India are in their mid-phase and everyone is doing their share to lift the spirit of students.
Nevertheless, it is on the day of the examination where change transpires, which unnecessary puts students in unwanted dire straits.
People, who have appeared for board examinations, are familiar to different unpleasant experiences that no one should personally face.
Here are several worse situations that students can often find themselves while in the examination hall during their boards –
Diarrhoea or any health ailment is not even the last thing on the list you want to experience on the day of your board examination. Imagine suffering from diarrhoea on the morning of your exam or in the exam hall. You do not want to spend time farting and thinking about going to the toilet while others focus on the most important task at hand.
Not Having a Pen
Who would have thought the phrase “Pen is the most important weapon” to come true in their teenage? One of the first exam rules is that you are not allowed to talk to anyone around. You definitely need a pen and you need to talk to someone to get it. But rules are rule; in such situation, you are forced to break that one rule. If you are caught, you are ridiculed for being a reckless student and whatnot.
Supervisor Standing Right Beside/Behind Them
Have you ever met with a situation where the supervisor comes and stands behind or beside you, staring right into your answer sheet? You have no idea what to do then. You cannot smile, you cannot engage in a casual chat; instead, you tend to forget what you are supposed to write!
Staring Blankly at the Question Paper
This usually happens when you are not prepared for the said test. It is the worst moment you can face in an examination hall. You can only wish for something bad to happen thanks to which the question paper does not reach you. But inevitably it does and one of your worst nightmares begins.
Watching Your Competition Writing Well
Though going blank during the exam hurts, what is more painful is watching your competition writing non-stop without taking a brief stop. It is as good as adding insult to injury and all you want to do at that moment is cry your heart out.
Getting Caught Helping Someone
There is no doubt someone will ask you for assistance with answer in regards to one of the asked questions. You can choose not to help them, but when you are the philanthropist of the class, you cannot back down from one such ‘challenge’. Obviously, it is scarier when you get caught during the act.
No One Helping You with the Answers
Also, there would be instances when you may want help with some questions. You can definitely ask someone to assist you in a low whisper, but what if they do not reciprocate positively? The best you can do is giving them the “you are dead to me” look.
Questioning Certain Topics That You Have Studied
You get the ‘question bank’ before the exam date arrives as per which you proceed with your preparation. But when you eventually get the question paper, some of the queries are different – the ones you have not studied. Ah…this dilemma cannot be explained!
The Snitch Selling You Out
You might manage to get one of the persons to answer the question you find difficult. However, what if that individual turns out to be a snitch and sells you out? You are definitely barred from the remainder of the examination. Ouch!!
