Tangled during a Final Exam
I have had my ups and downs during many exams, but all in all i guess i made it till the present time. We all,the smart the gifted and the challenged, face obstacles and challenges during exams . We are trialed and are expected to succeed. Well, we all have moments of terror before a big or huge exam. And we all know that those exams have a certain weight on us, especially emotionally . I had my physics final today and i guess i did pretty good. But i still need your wishes and prayers. I did pretty good after i overcame the terror and shock that traversed my body in the first couple of minutes. For 100 minutes i had Physics. We then rested for like 10 minutes and had a two hour Literature exam. So i guess things are fuzzy now
I hear my heart beat and that of the fellow sitting next to me
Worried? No petrified is the word and my vision isn’t clear lucky me!
God, I hope I succeed in this exam if not I will certainly fall of a ledge
I can’t control my anxiety. I am panicking the suspense is driving off the edge
Oh, I don’t know where to start, the questions are unclear
Oh I am going to fail and have to face my worse fear
I am sweating like a pig and notice that the seat is uncomfortable
I hate the breeze slamming my face and this unstable dancing table
I can’t breath! I feel like I am being drowned intentionally
I know the rules, but not how to apply them unfortunately
Oh everyone is writing except me. My legs are shaking, heartbeat accelerating
I don’t think so. I am confused there I don’t know what I’m writing
Is the potential energy equal to half multiplied by the mass and the velocity?
Or is it the other rule we have to apply here for I can’t make up my mind. Certainly
I have to start with a question and try my luck, I have to write .
The teacher will correct and I’ll get a mark based on what is right
I am breathing now but I know time will be up
I have to gather some points before I stand up
The third question was easy to me, three points out of ten guaranteed
I now can calculate the acceleration and then deduce the speed
What is the value of the terrestrial electromagnetic force?
I don’t know, it should be written in the given I suppose
The fourth question had me tangled
Were the forces right angled?
Projectile! finally my strongest point. Five marks granted freely
I hope I pass this exam , but the challenge isn’t done merely
I believe I can do this if I clam down
I don’t have to fail or drown
