Essay on Examination Fever

Even the saints say, “God! Do not put us to test.” A test saps the energies of a person, generates mental agony and makes him incapable of thinking in a proper and logical manner. Examinees shudder at the thought of the examination and the fear of failure makes them depressed. Evil dreams haunt the students and the dose of the admonition given to them regularly disturbs them.
Before the examination, the students suspend pleasure-oriented activities. They do not go to the playground. They also cancel their picnic schedules and forget about going to the latest movies. They are busy with their books. They go on reading while sipping a cup of tea. They go on revising while lying in their beds. They discuss questions, talk about books and dream about answers. Some confine themselves to their rooms and stick to chairs while some others sit in remote corners.
The examination fever touches the highest point on the night before the examination. One gets disturbed sleep. Students get up early in the morning and even the atheists start to pray. In front of the examination hall, one feels that everything has drained out of one’s brain. A friend says, “This question is sure to be set.” Another says, “Have you prepared these questions?” The student feels disturbed and turns the pages of his books in a hasty manner. He/She tries to go over the answers.
As soon as he/she takes his/her seat in the examination hall, he/she prays to God and revises the questions. If the question paper is difficult, glasses of water are asked for. An easy question paper may make the choice of questions difficult. As examinee settles down to answer the questions, he/she might feel that most of what he/she had learned has evaporated from his/her brain.

Even after the examination, the fever still haunts the student. He/She tells his/her friend, “I was a bit confused” or “I could not do justice to some of the questions.” He/She counts marks and thinks of what division he/she would get. He/She continues to be in suspense till the result day dawns. He/She tries to find his or her roll number in the result sheet. This moment is very troublesome because failure would invite great disappoint to everyone related to the examinee, ie teachers, parents, friends, relatives and neighbours. Even if she gets through he/she would be heard saying, “There is something wrong with the examiner. Perhaps my answer sheets were replaced with those of a weak student.”
Examination fever is in fact, a painful experience for every student. But the right approach and proper studying schedule throughout the session may help to get over examination fever very easily.
