Time is running out! The boards start in exactly 16 days, 11 hours, 48 minutes, 33 seconds. I can’t help but feel nervous; the most important exams that I will ever have to write begin in 16 days. It’s so not going to be easy this year; the syllabus has been changed, the board is going to set difficult question papers and the abolition of TNPCEE means that I have to get 99.999% to get into the state colleges like Anna, SSN and the like. It’s sad that so much importance is placed on one set of examinations. There’s just too much pressure and as a result of that I have to go now and bury my face into my JAVA book. Reading this book is a good substitute for counting sheep, I might add.
