The Night Before An ExaminationExaminations are almost always feared, because none of us is sure enough as to what extent we are able to realize our dreams by working the way we do. This any examination is a cause of concern proportionate to how good results we desire to make. And all the concern and anxiety and fear, to what ever extent it may be, ail us most the very night before the Examination.
It is a nightmare indeed. As is generally the case, the night before an exam is crowed with the necessary and unnecessary business of many by-gone yesterdays, and is burdened with the fear of tomorrow morning. It is, at the same time, occupied and hollow: occupied with tensions, anxieties, fears and works; and hollow with the meanings nothingness of uncontrolled disappointment. But the intensity of the above forces vary from person to person.
On the student who was not punctual in his/ her studies all through the year, rather, trifled, away his/ her valuable time in idle gossips, laziness, or uncontrolled recreations, this night weighs unbearably heavy. An ambivalence of lack of confidence and need for preparation weakens him/ her. On the one hand, he/ she finds it difficult to cover the required but neglected syllabus in one single night and yet tries too hurridly to do so; on the other, he/ she can do really nothing in such unmanaged hurry. The results is obvious: that student is anxious and afraid. He/ she can hardly have a sound sleep.
What is more, his/ her mental and physical tension leaves him/ her temporarily worn out. His/ her real exam beings that very night, so to say.
