Examination time is a tense period for me. It takes a toll on students, parents and even teachers.

Students especially need to ensure that they complete the lessons and revise everything before the exams start. It helps relieve a lot of stress. The days between two exams are for kids to revise the subjects. We must make good use of these days otherwise we will end up being twice as nervous.

Missing my favourite cartoons make me nervous. Waiting for the exam results also makes me nervous. There is stress no matter what I do. But I know my hard work will eventually pay off and I will succeed in life.
