I was ready, had studied for a good time getting great marks in all the mocks. The night before was going to be quiet, going over some points I was weak on until the phone rang.
Moments later I had a pint in my hand, singing happy birthday and looking down on an Indian feast. What followed was a blur of pubs upon pubs ending with me staggering in at about 3 in the morning in a not so good state.
The exam was at 10 I woke at 9:30, I got up and charged to the test centre and proceeded to drift in and out of sleep. The motivation came when I noticed there was half an hour to go and I still had 43 questions to go.
The young lady who gave me my result was a suprised as I was that I passed.
The moral of the story is take the phone off the hook the night before an exam.
