A to Z Challenge Poetry

T is for Testophobia #atozchallenge

There once was a boy afraid of taking tests
He tried to avoid, but had to take ‘em like the rest
He learnt by rote
And made several notes
But in the end, it was anxiety that got the best

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Testophobia is the fear of taking tests

    I liked exams as long as I have prepared well for the exams. But I used to have recurring dreams that I enter a examination hall and I come to know that I have prepared for the wrong subject 😛

    When in school, I get this urge to take a test now and then. But when results are to be announced I am all shivering! 😛

    I had this phobia once. It was during my 11th Grade. We had a long vacation and returned to school after the classes had begun. I was so scared of writing the exams since I couldn’t catch up on the portion and hence decided to skip my Maths and Chemistry papers. I remember crying and telling my parents how scary it felt. But I was all relaxed once I knew I could skip this time if I wanted to. 🙂 Good one !

    I used to have severe anxiety attacks till class 9th. Then from 10th onwards, there were so many exams to give that I just stopped caring!
