Exam Nerves

Sweaty paws!
Clenching jaws!
The testing season’s here
Heart beats race
Feet will pace
Pushed on by exam fears

Yet here’s the thing
O’er everything
Past sympathetic tone
Take a big breath
Lest scared to death
For you are not alone

And chill your beans
For by no means
Will too much stress help you
For certain sure
You do know more
Than you believe is true

So hold on to
And smile anew
For now the time is here
To demonstrate
Then celebrate
How much you’ve learnt this year!

 

The Test!

“Yes, I think the answer is a test
To see what you can do”
The teacher said as he arrived
The class now feeling blue
“Let’s test you to assess how you’ll
Do when we test again
To test the test that will test you
To test what’s in your brain”

“Yes an exam, mid-term review
Assessment, mock or test
Just call it what you want to say
A trial.  Now don’t get stressed!
And then we’ll do it all again
Exams now tit for tat”
The teacher said as he arrived
No surprise he was called “Pratt”

“But Mr Pratt” the class implored
What is the point you make
To test the test that you will test
The test we might retake!
What is the reason for these tests
That happen every day!
Oh, Mr Pratt – when will we learn?
It’s not the only way?”

With every best wish to all those taking mocks in the next few weeks 🙂
