20 reasons why exams SUCK

Filed under: Humour — Teal @ 9:32 am

20 reasons why exams SUCK:

  1. You don’t get the mood to study during the study holidays…amidst all the holiday planning… so you do good ol’ 12th hour preparation.
  2. 2 days before the exam, you can’t find your syllabus book.
  3. When you actually locate it, you realize that you don’t have material for half the subjects.
  4. You get into a frenzy of panic and take deep breaths.
  5. You call up your friend who lives nearby.
  6. She doesn’t have it either.
  7. Then she gets psyched out and you end up consoling her, feeling a hell lot better.
  8. After hanging up, you forget the whole purpose of the call…
  9. After gathering all the relevant material, you look into the pages and wonder how Lord Murphy could write Greek and Latin, and that too in your syllabus!
  10. You skip a few topics. [Given the hectic schedule of panicking and mugging alternatively].
  11. The very same topics appear in the @#&^ing paper … that too in the detail section.
  12. You walk out of the hall with a firm resolve to gather material in time prior to the next exam.
  13. You runaway from the scene when your friends and classmates do a post-mortem of the question paper … who the @#$% wants to remember it anyway???
  14. You spend sleepless nights during exam seasons…
  15. You do the next exam very well.
  16. You try to enjoy your holidays … but the thoughts of results always linger in your mind.
  17. When the results do come out …and you realise the whole ordeal was not worth it ! You fare better in the paper you thought you screwed up in and get mediocre marks in the paper you thought you’d ace.
  18. You use expurgated words to describe the soul who corrected your papers as well as the university…
  19. You pen down similar and other such useless thoughts on the eve of an exam…. get close to nervous breakdowns when you get the news that …. Exams are postponed !!!!
  20. Twenty reasons aint enough!!! I can give you infinite reasons why exams SUCK!!!



  1. Perfect 🙂

  16. Exams suck…all they mark is MEMORY RECOIL.
    In this day and age we have COMPUTERS to do this and CALCULATORS and the INTERNET to help us in our daily lives.
    Hence there is no real need to REMEMBER it!
