My exams have ended.
There is a sense of relief that comes with that. A whole year’s worth of hard work and finally, it’s done. It’s over. I can finally rest now.
The exams ending feels like I have crossed the finishing line after running for so long. It feels good.
But at the same time, I can’t believe that it has come to an end. It feels like only yesterday that I started the school year. It only feels like yesterday when I started planning my studies and following that plan.
And now suddenly, it’s over.
It just amazes me how quickly time flies.
Honestly, I had a great year this year.
I did my best to study. I paced myself and did my best to stick to the original study plan that I have. Of course, I had to modify the study plan according to my own abilities at certain times.
I also had fun with my classmates. We studied together and we also enjoyed ourselves together. It was good to be surrounded by classmates during the academic year because with them, I felt less alone. It was just good to be surrounded by classmates because it felt like we were all in this together, fighting hard. We understand each other in that sense.
I also like to think that I managed my stress relatively well compared to my first year.
Anyhow, I truly did my best.
Honestly, I really do not know how well I will do in the exams. I do not know if my best is enough.
But that doesn’t matter.
All that matters is, I have done my best.
And now, the summer break has come.
It’s time for me to rest.
So that when the next academic year starts, I can start strong.
Anyway, with the summer break, it is time for all of us to rest. Be proud that you have finished your exams because it means, you reached the finish line. You did it. As long as you did your best, hold your head high and be proud. So, forget about the results and enjoy yourself during the summer break.
The results will come sooner or later.
But for now, we rest!

Exams are easier nowadays! There is so much quick access to information to get up to speed with the subjects that you can even get ahead of the curriculum and make it look out of date. All you have to do is focus and apply yourself. What’s your view?
