The season of examinations has recently started in this city. International public exams, school mock exams and university final exams, etc. are descending like an avalanche upon students. Being current candidates, you may feel very excited that your depth of learning would soon be gauged or you have been tensed up by the loads of review time and tasks. At any rate, dealing with examinations is just a phase of your life. More episodes displaying all sorts of joys and sorrows will come. Meanwhile, the most important thing is to give yourself a burst of applause for your participation in what you are required to do at this stage and in your position. Carpe diem!
