I remember it was Pakistan and India’s match when I gave the admission test of IBA back in 2009. Reviving those memories overwhelms me to that extent that I can still feel the excitement all over again. Since I knew getting admission in IBA is not an easy job more like climbing a mountain of air, giving the test was a last minute decision.
When people asked me how was the admission test, I retorted back with ‘so easy’. I thought I had gone crazy but when I got to know I passed, it was a totally different feeling. Going through the whole procedure of admission, be it group discussions, interviews, all through this I had been flying on seventh heaven with happiness. I remember the people over there were very different, friendly ofcourse but so focused. The seniors were ever so helpful probably because my sister was in her last year there too, making her friends being just amazing to me.
It’s the season of exams. As I see my little sisters going through the pain of studying I feel happy for them. They work towards getting excellent grades, learning the art of hard work and the techniques of studying right.
Students learn a lot from this phase of their life. They know how to divide their time in studying, breaks, revision to that extent that a single disturbance may result in time wastage.
The worst thing during this time is when you’re giving up your life achieving your dreams and still there is pressure to get better from family. Some parents understand the situation since they realize that their children know from right and wrong. Their children know that an educated mind is a successful mind. While on the other hand, cousins, relatives AND parents pressure you to get into prestigious universities. Not allowing sleep just sitting on the chair facing the table and studying continuously.
Here are the following symptoms basically warnings which will let you know a person is giving their serious exams so that you may stay away!
1. Their face has an attitude problem.
When you meet them in normal days, you will see them laughing, cracking jokes but months before the exam, you try to talk to them and I seriously tell you they will shoot you down insulting your whatever leftover ego. They talk less and when you approach them talking on anything except the subjects they are giving, they get irritated.
