I really think that people lose their minds the day of the exam. Before the start of the morning session, a lady in my section walks up to the proctors check-in desk and starts to swing her leg wildly back and forth, back and forth. Everyone is looking at her like she is a complete lunatic. She then proceeds to ask the head proctor of our section if she can do her leg exercises during the exam at her table because she gets a stiff knee after sitting for a while. The proctor does a great job of not laughing and tells her that she will need to go to the back of the room if she must do this crazy leg swing. No, that would not be at all distracting.
San Francisco, for the AM session the proctor reading the instructions forgot to tell us we could start. Around 500 people spent a very uncomfortable couple of minutes staring at each other, too terrified to open our exam books while worrying that the clock was ticking away. They ended up restarting the clock at 9:03.
And that same proctor in San Francisco forgot to tell us to open our test booklets when she was reading the instructions in the AM session. We were confused if we could open them up to rip out the answer sheet and fill in our information.
need to get your opinion(s). I was sitting there after checking in for the PM session but way before the timed exam/announcement started, chatting up a cute girl beside me. Then the proctor comes up to us and tells us that we are not allowed to talk during this time. I don’t recalled reading any rules/pledges that we can’t talk before the announcements or timed exam start.
I got a minor headache from all the people puzzing around from desk to desk to chat … you setting at your desk surrounded by people standing up in circles like it was high school… There were lots of giggles in the air… I wanted to knock them all out, especially before the PM session !
I have a funny after-exam story. I have so clearly split my time planning according to before and after modi that I have not noticed the national holiday. And went to work on a national holiday (MOnday)… God was I surprised!))) I knew every single legitimate day off before the exam, but not one the day after))).
I’m used to taking regular panadol (not extra) … But on exam day I picked up tbe pills on hurry and only in the exam did I realise it’s panadol EXTRA … It was the first time I ever tried it, and gosh I had the most unusual stomach pain … I think my stomach could not tolerate it
