What did you night before an examination

Examination, whether a collage annual or a university final, gives some fright to all students.  None, not even the most prepared examine, can ever be sure of the best outcome expected of the examination. Questions may be exceptionally stiff and deceptive; the time may not  suffice to answer all the questions. These and other possibilities keep rising and falling in
the mind of the examine and as such, his tension goes on mounting. And, finally, the tension rises to the peak on the night before the trial examination.

Every student is suddenly faced with the striking reality of the examination on the night before the day of commencement. As he seeks to review his progress, he finds the preparation imperfect. He tries to recapitulate in his mind some of those he has read, prepared or memorized. The memory seems to be giving way. That makes him all the more nervous. He tries to enjoy a restful sleep at the night and face the ordeal next day with a composed mind and unruffled brain.

But is it as easy sleeping as resolving, No, not for an excitable student. The brain has its own way of behaving.  the brain, refusing to co-operate, Keeps wandering about, often stealing into the pages of the books or calling back to mind some distant suggestion made by a professor in the class. Again and again. Questions and answers, Important and unimportant questions and such other anti-sleep things occur in the mind. Thus hours roll by till about midnight when a nap visits the tossing student which, however, is broken shortly by a fearful dream.

If, however, the student is by nature unexcitable, he can have an undisturbed sleep and rise from bed next morning with a refreshed mind and renewed energy. He often gets up early in the small hours of morning and glances over the book or books with a calm attention. The last moment review is very useful and he makes the best of it by virtue of his natural sedateness.

The mental condition varies also between a negligent and a serious student. Rather, whether a student will get nervous at the eleventh hour depends largely on how far he has neglected his studies, he will invariably feel somewhat perturbed at the closing hours. On the other hand, good preparation will help to calm down the mental agitation.

In fact, the night before an examination is a night of anxiety and peculiar-experience. Overcome to the trouble of this night the examines should  prepare their lessons much earlier and try to pass this night with a normal state of mind.
