Blogging break?! :)


Just typing up this quick little post to inform you that I'll be taking a break from blogging for the next two weeks or so. Life's been pretty busy and some things are going on, but until then, feel free to check out any of my other posts! 

Have a great day!

Finals Frenzy: Biology! :)

My last 11th grade final! It was on March 3rd! 

Before the exam:
A little tense, a little relaxed. Since Biology is one of those subjects where you do need to memorize quite a lot of it, I wasn't that confident - it felt like I knew things & didn't at the same time. I revised as much as I could on the day of the exam & went through all of the diagrams. With 22 chapters to revise, it was quite a lot to study! 

During the exam:
I did my best & somehow finished the exam. While I didn't remember a few things, I tried to recall the concepts as much as I could. 

Finals Frenzy: Math! :)

Final #4! Math! 

The exam was on 28th February. 

Before the exam:
Excited. Yup - you read that right. I like to see what the paper can throw at a student for a math test - as long as they don't throw too many hard questions, I like a challenge! I went through all of the formulae again before the exam (though now, I wish I had gone through it twice!) and quite a few people ased me their doubts. Why? Because people think that I'm actually good at math! Though I'm not really - I just practice a lot and try to think to get an answer, not memorize how to do it! 

Finals Frenzy: Chemistry! :)

The Chemistry final - where do I even begin? 

For starters, it was on 26th February. 

Before the exam: 
Frantic. Stressed. Worried. The three words that described me before the exam - the day of and the day prior (I didn't even have dinner!) With SO much to study, I started to worry. I revised the best I could and went to school to write the exam.

During the exam:
While I had finished with a good amount of time to spare, I still didn't get quite a few answers! I also checked my paper to make sure that I hadn't made any mistakes in those that I had gotten - it's always better to be on the safer side, right?

Finals Frenzy: Physics! :)

Final #2! Physics! It was on 24th February (Yes, I'm behind on these posts, sorry!). 

Before the exam:
Since the exam was at around 2 pm, I did revise that day before the exam. I started with the chapters that I found hard and worked my way through all of the 16 chapters, one by one, each being lesser difficult as I did! Prior to the day of the exam, I followed a strict colour-coded Post-it revision schedule! 

During the exam:
I was definitely calm and collected before the exam! I thought I had prepared myself well! 
I answered all of the questions (Exam duration: 3 hours) and I finished with some time to spare to work on 2 questions that I had not been able to figure out. I checked my paper and sort of figured out a way to answer those 2 questions!
