Exam Diaries: Part III December 12, 2007

Posted by K in Diary.

I came back from the slaughter today, demoralised and dejected. Feeling listless and disinclined to prepare for the next paper. Because,you see, I know less about Modernism than I know about the Romantics. And if I messed up the Romantics paper, how can I help not messing up the Modernism paper?

The sad part is, that my miserable paper had less to do with ignorance and more to do with my old demon: time. I came out, yet again, with two unfinished questions (and here I was hoping that my Yellow would work its charm again!). Worse, one of the unfinished questions was for a professor who, well, you would NOT like to leave an unfinished question for! I could just imagine her reading out my answer and mocking me. 😦

I guess I should console myself with the fact that in the first year, I once left a twenty marker completely undone, and another twenty marker partially undone. And then in the finals, ended up leaving myself 8 minutes for a (15 mark) question I had lots to write for. I recall my first paper last year, too, suffered me.

My first paper disaster has a precedent. But sheesh,really…

Now, ofcourse, I am absolutely petrified about my Lit Theory paper. Not only have I not read all my primary readings, we have also but a day between that and the previous paper.

Oh, and did I mention I am giving SNAP…which is this sunday, and I have a paper this monday?

Ah, me!
