7 Worries EVERY Nigerian Student Has About Writing An Exam From Home

August 15, 2020

Do you have to write an exam from home? Gather here, let us cry together

1) Network Issues

Network is bad on a normal day, but the day you want to write exam? That is when they will not even give you one bar. You click submit and suddenly, page is frozen.

2) Loneliness

You are writing a difficult paper and in the midst of answering a tough question, you look beside you for “encouragement” and there is nobody. You are all alone

3) Rules

When writing exams in schools, the rules are never these many. Why do we need so many rules, we are harmless

4) Distractions

Try as family may to give you privacy during exams, if you have younger siblings, it is basically impossible. During your exam is when your mother remembers she wants to change her profile picture on Wazzap.

5) Study time

Not enough time to study. They think because we are at home, the one week before exams they gave us is enough. No dear, it is not.

6) Server

Sometimes, it is not even your own network messing you up. You will be writing the exam and suddenly, server is down. Your paper gets submitted for you and you get 1/50. How will you cry?

7) Electricity

NEPA does not cooperate on a normal day, is it when you need them? Middle of exam they will take light, laptop will die, Wi-fi will go off, server will crash. If your village people cannot get you directly, they use NEPA
