My exams: two opposing views.

I hate exams. This is how I feel during exam time.

Richard thinks this is how it will all turn out. Nice to know my husband has faith in me (no matter how unrealistic!).

Actually this evening I had the exam I was dreading the most (Portuguese oral exam - I was talking about childhood obesity, of all things) and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. One of the examiners gave me a chocolate at the end of it! I was actually saying to my workmates that at the start of every exam, students should be supplied with chocolate and coffee. This was at the end of the exam, and I had to bring my own coffee, but it's definitely a step in the right direction :)

The doodle totally made me laughing out out! And all the best in your exam too!!!
Just one question Aveen, do they really have a skull printed on the exam paper or something? o__O

Hehe no, no skull, it's just that when I take exams I feel like I'm doomed!

Thanks for the good wishes everyone :)

Oh! You should have let us know - before! You must never let a test get you!
I know what you mean.. I just had to be trained on another OpCo. That means I am now able to service four divisions at my work -- NO, not one extra dollar and not even Our merit raise. I also have to capture sales. We had to make at least 80 on the test. That was a surprise. We had no idea we had to do that. I got sick- A real Bummer of a head cold. The day of the second and final test. I only made 89 on the first test, I felt so bad. But I calmed down and passed with a 93. I got scared they were going to make it a Average of 80 on both test. Or out. Scary!
I almost turned in a blank sheet.
Glad it is over for you.
Know you did splendid.
Wish someone had doodled for me. So, sweet.
