SO, I resorted to the one thing all helpless students do.. "Psst..", I called out to the guy in front of me, desperate that he hear me, hopeful that the invigilator wouldn't. That was the only point of time I was successful at in those 3 hours in that examination hall. Because try as that helpful guy in front of me might, I could not, for the life of me , fathom what clues he was giving me on his answer sheet for three reasons :
a) I was not skilled at the art of copying just yet.
b) I hadn't worn my glasses and could not distinctly make out what he was writing
c) I wasn't really familiar with the subject enough to unravel the seemingly complex clues he was trying to pass me.
I soon got bored of unsuccessfully trying to finish the exam by the only means that seemed obvious just then..unfair..I left the exam hall in 40 minutes, with my classmates staring at me in awe. If only they knew how pathetic I felt just then.
