Exam stress!!

  • Print


Mubinur Rahman Chowdhury Nadvi :
Exams are rather horrid. But no one can escape it. And while studying, exam is needed to pass and survive in the next class. But why? Who invented such a thing? If there were no exams, wouldn't that be a good thing? I mean, for one, students won't get scared anymore. It would be bye-bye for me. No tension. Also, if there were no exams really (just dreaming), students will be more then willing to test their skills. Not like a 'test', more like to see how badly they studied all the year long.
No, I'm serious! Exams create such a tension in mind and body; it's unlike any other headache. The Adrenalin pumps work overtime, but the cell workers do not get any extra salary (really, the brain is a terrible government). But the good news (for the cell citizens) is that the government also have a heap of troubles. The neuron offices receive way too much info to handle. Power Banks (mitochondria) do not get proper oxygen to power their generator (nucleus). So it is needed to work with a limited budget of oxygen.
The Central Power House (heart) receives a lot of beating (or, you know, 'gives'). Not only that the state reporters need to write a lot of reports on a lot of papers. The observers (eyes) get tired of just looking at some black letters all day, while the State's own writing offices (other neurons) store the information in the banks (even more neurons).
 Speakers (mouths) become tired of reciting the same thing over and over, while the listeners record the information and store it in the Info-Banks along with the written documents. The normal citizens (blood, muscles, tissues etc.) are all pulled out of their jobs to help pump the Power House (without any bonus, of course. Way to go, Brain!) Even the children (new-born cells) do all they can and cheer their parents. The Air House (lungs) can't enough air as the State's Air Suppliers (nose) can't receive proper air due to tension-blockage. Only the Water House (kidneys) seemed to be having any fun. A lot of water is drunk, and they seem to be more than happy to process it. Occasionally, when they do not get the unnaturally huge amount of water, they give a painful lurch (painful!). The final task is for the Transporters (legs) to run to the exam hall in time. But apparently, they seem to enjoy it, too.
Like these, the other parts of the body (I was too tired too mention because I myself am in the middle of an exam) need to play a lot of tiring parts. And this tiring cycle goes on and on for years. But, you know what? It's all worth it in the end. 'Coz when the results come out, the whole State (body) rejoices. And the look of the loving faces of our mum and dad flash before us, life becomes heaven.

(So that's how the exam cycle goes on. My advice is ? it's a hard work. But at the end, it really does pay off.)
