When life is a dream journey, why spoil this voyage with the burden of exam frustration on your shoulders. The work of the examiner is to set questions and yours is to answer them according to your level of knowledge and understanding. It is never necessary that what you think is similar to what the examiner is expecting of you. You also know the fact that everyone’s expectations cannot be met and it is impossible to please and satisfy everyone equally in this world. Why then, worry about the people who are rarely satisfied by anyone. You are not born with the liability to convince everyone. Let me explain this further.


Why you should not worry about exam frustration?


Exam is an everyday process. It is the most loyal girlfriend to a student. It is never going to leave you until you or your school decides to part with each other. So, no use attempting to escape from the almighty. Have it in your lunch.

  • Examiners are the ones who are the happiest people to frustrate you and make you confuse. Make them startled by your answers. Frustrate them to the limit of endurance.
  • Once you make up your mind to beat the exam frustration, you get the ability to write anything and everything on your answer sheet. You are at your best when you use your own words and imagination, especially your own theory.
  • Examiner is a person with extra long faces. He is a smiley that cannot smile. Don’t try the impossible. He can only smile after giving you a smiley without eyes and mouth (i.e.zero).
  • Getting pathetic grades in an examination consolidates your position as an independent thinker and makes you a member of the majority league. This is the best that one can achieve in this democratic world.
