"Reflecting on Exam Preparedness: A Student's Journey Toward Diligent Revision"

My second terminal examinations are scheduled to begin on Friday, October 6th, 2023. I have dedicated more than a week to preparing for the first exam, which is Mathematics. It is noteworthy that, with only two days remaining until the examination, I am not experiencing any discernible pressure or anxiety. Some individuals may interpret this as a positive sign, but I believe it is indicative of a lack of seriousness when approaching exams.


Admittedly, I must acknowledge that I have not been treating these exams with the gravity they deserve. While I have covered the syllabus, I have yet to engage in any revision. Regrettably, I often find myself merely gazing at my textbooks and notes, squandering valuable time. Such behavior is unbecoming of a student in the tenth grade.


Whenever I attempt to revisit prior chapters, I tend to convince myself that I had previously mastered the material and that I can readily tackle it again. However, this self-assurance does not align with reality, as my grasp of the subject matter remains inadequate.


I find myself grappling with the challenge of instilling a sense of urgency and a genuine passion for learning. It is often the fear of failure or a genuine thirst for knowledge that compels one to devote time to studying.


Ideally, I would prefer to attribute my current demeanor to unwavering confidence in my level of preparation and the belief that I can achieve a perfect score. However, this is not the case.


A recent observation on my part is my susceptibility to distractions. As I write this, the clock reads 12:48 AM, yet I find myself remarkably focused. The serene ambiance of my home and my affection for writing have fostered this concentration.


In addition to cultivating my enthusiasm for writing, I recognize the necessity of cultivating a similar passion for studying. I remain optimistic that I can accomplish this transformation and, through diligent revision, attain commendable marks across all subjects in the upcoming examinations.
