It was one Monday afternoon after we had finished lunch and we were heading to the class room for class when this happened.
All the Primary seven pupils were told to report to class immediately. Some of us had just finished lunch since we were served first this term. Although the food was not great, we just had to endure since it was about that time when we were leaving Primary for good.
All of us rushed to our class room including the girls off course, the rumor was that a Kasasi, let me call it an exam tip for the purpose of this blog, had been brought and we couldn’t miss out on this one.
The teacher who brought this so called tip was a favorite among us the pupils and we defiantly knew that it was a dream come true for us this time. He was a Social studies teacher and I loved that subject since I always excelled in it.
He told us to sit closer to each other, be quiet and don’t write anything rather use our brains to understand everything. He would rub the board every minute he had finished writing something and after making sure that it had sunk in our minds.
The process went on for about and hour til when he was finished with his questions which wold appear in the final exam. We all left the room and went on to our normal routine hoping that if these questions came in the finals we would excel.
To our dismay, things didn’t turn out as we expected since the final exam is set by experienced examiners and our teacher wasn’t one of them. We were breathless, nervous , and disappointed since the Kasasi didn’t appear.
From that day on wards nobody ever trusted his words including me however much he was my best teacher. Thank God I passed the exam since I had prepared well. From that moment on I have never believed in the so called Kasasi‘s or Bullets as they are usually termed in High school.
I have excelled in all the schools I have been too till joining University. My mind is still disturbed by these two questions;
Do you trust exam tips?
Did the schools make me better or it was my own effort?
