I hate exams.
Since I graduated with a bachelor degree, few people had been asking me why don't I further my study to get a Masters degree, or PhD. My answer to them are always the same - I hate exams.
Well, last Friday was the last day of my job training here in Scotland. As usual, a final exam will be at the very ending of the overall course. Cut long story short, we had to sit for a final exam. I thought it was going to be an open book kind of exam, but it was not. Double the hate-ness.
There were 150 multiple choice questions which included a few fill-in-the-blanks type of questions, to be answered within ermm... 4 hours I guess. We started at 8.30am, and by 11.30am I could not think anymore. Just hantam-whateva on the few questions I totally have no clue, and submitted my answers.
At the end, I passed.
It's not that I don't like to learn new knowledge, it's just that I dislike exams. I had a kind of trauma when I did my final year exam during my bachelor degree and I do not want to get partially insane again trying to memorize all these theories, formulas and 'magic' numbers associated with particular subjects being tested or examined.
The next thing I realize now is that I got some additional knowledge and it has somehow became my responsibility to share my knowledge with the others back home.
Well, life goes on... I mean, work goes on.
Apa aku mengarut ni???
