Tales Out Of Campus: Exam Success

Tales Out Of Campus: Exam Success


I got to the examination hall about thirty seconds to the time. Who cares anyway? Today we were to write G.S.S 101 exams: the Use of English. The invigilator handed our papers to us after taking the roll call, and we started immediately. I skimmed through the questions over and again for more than fifteen minutes. My mind was blank. Oh my God! From where did this stupid lecturer import these questions? I wondered. Did he really teach these things?  Nna men wahala dey oooh!

I took a quick look around the hall; everyone was bent over, writing seriously, especially the girl who sat beside me.

No! I can’t end up like this, I thought to myself.  I must pass this course by any means available. Any! So I stretched my neck a little, peered into the paper of the girl sitting next to me and started copying from her work.

She was quick in putting down the answers, and also had a nice writing. Jeeeez……. this girl must be a genius! She must have noticed my little game, because a while later, she started covering her work systematically; I was undaunted however, and stretched my neck further.

Several minutes later, she stood up to submit her paper. I held on tightly to her skirt, pleading silently as I did so. “Nne, please I seriously need to pass this English course. Just allow me to finish copying from the second page”.

She looked at me disdainfully, sighed and brushed me aside, but I held on desperately to her skirt. She became angry and flared up. “WHAT!!! What I do to you! Why are you pester me like say tomorrow is not around. Eh? Did I telling you not to read?”

I cried out instantly to the invigilator in my loudest voice. “Sir I need a new answer sheet immediately! I have made a very big mistake!”

So na like dis I for use my own hand finish myself! Baba God noni ooh. I need to find another authentic source to copy from; make I try dis oda girl. Whether devil like am or not, I must pass this course!
