I finished my University last year, so I don't have many exams now. But I'm preparing for English exam, which is so important for me to get the requested points for studying abroad. Those instructions that were mentioned to the lesson, I used to follow during my studies when I had exams. One of the most important was to switch off the phone, to make visible the student Card, and to put away books and notebooks, so you weren't able to copy from them. Exams make us feel nervous and stressful.

Nobody likes exams I think. It's a hard challenge and big stress. You feel nervous and uncertain. Everyone is afraid to fail on the exam. I had a lot of this stuff in my life and almost every time it wasn't easy. Now I'm learning again and have lots of tests. It's not as difficult as exams so I take my test at home, not in the classroom but yeah I still feel nervous sometimes.

I did have a lot of exams when I studied at University. Right now, at work sometimes I have to do some tests to complete courses and certifications, but there are not so stressful and rigid like were in high school and university. Also, I am preparing to take a professional certification from Cisco and when I take that, I would be very similar to old times. It may sound weird, but I really like exams, I think they encourage me to prepare and feel challenged.
