Where the tumbleweeds fade away and die,
Before the glassy sun burns a summer of crystals,
The glistering waters of the high seas
Of which was so far a place as of where vultures roam.
I looked around but you weren't anywhere...
You used to say that you would never die,
But I took the wrong meaning into my heart.
Now the sea is wild with despair,
Deep blue like a prairie of flowers blue,
Where all children of God rest in eternal peace.
I saw you at the end,
You and I, brother and sister of nature,
Brother and sister of heaven and earth,
Your usually calm and heavenly eyes full of tears,
Bitterly falling one after one into a river,
Then the river of life turned red in blood.
My eyes watched in horror.
Slowly and deadly your heart became poisoned,
You disappeared without saying good-bye,
Not a word came out of your mouth.
You became like desolation in its grave.
When once the skies were a realm of stars
And the sun shone brightly in summer skies,
You were there to share the calmness;
But now I stand here in midst of the tall grass
And only the savannah remains.

Here, I hope you all to advice me How to organise my time to study for final exam....
Saturday, April 11, 2009
1-Eat Frequent Small Meals .
Avoid eating a big meal before a study session. Too much food will send your body into a ‘rest’ mode. On the other hand, don’t starve yourself either. Frequent small meals are best.
2-Study When You’re Sharpest.
Study according to your body-clock. Are you sharpest in the morning or at the evening? Schedule your most difficult materials when you are mentally at your best, and schedule the easier ones when you are mentally less efficient.
3-Drink Water Often.
Drink plenty of water during a study session, especially when you feel sluggish. Caffeine may help you to stay awake, but it can increase your anxiety - use it in moderation.
4-Don’t Get Too Comfortable in Your Chair.
Choose a chair that supports your back. It should be comfortable, but not too comfortable. Just like an athlete during a performance, your body should be relaxed, so that all your energy goes to where it matters - your brain.
5-Clear Your Desk of Everything You Don’t Need.
Have everything you need on the desk. Put away what you do not need for the study session. Seeing reminders of other assessments or domestic bills may increase your anxiety and distract you.
6-Take Breaks Every Hour.
It is important to take a break before you feel tired and lose your concentration completely. Regular breaks at least once an hour helps to sustain your concentration. If the work is not going too well and you have difficulties in concentrating, you may need a long break and go back to it later
7-Stretch During Your Breaks.
Know and respect your concentration span which will vary from hour to hour and from day to day. When you sit for long periods, gravity draws the blood to the lower part of your body. When you take a break, take a few deep breaths and get more oxygen to your brain: try walking around and doing some light stretching for a few minutes. It will help to release tension in your body, and help your circulation.
8-Study at the Same Time, same place.
Study at the same tima and same place, devoted to study only. This helps you to associate the time and place with studying and concentrating. You will find that you get into a habit of studying as soon as you sit down
1:- Read the board question paper: Don’t start your paper just after receiving it, first read it carefully, give little time.
2:-Random or Sequence: Some students attempts paper serial wise, its good but if you don’t know a particular question don’t attempt it and mark that one with it as un attempted. It is advised to attempt only those in which you are more confident. This will not only save your time but also make you confident and minimize your stress as well.
3:-There would be some students who are still not feeling confident; those students are advised to try to find out the main root of your problem before the examination. Why are you not confident and try to solve that?
4:-In case of too much stress the best and simple solution is to shut down your eyes and take deep breaths.
5:-Don’t waste your time in solving repeated questions and use your time effectively.
6:-Try to take balanced diet and avoid UN healthy food.
7:-Those who are already tense and in taking too much stress should not cut down their sleep. As healthy Body, healthy mind
8:-Don’t fear: don’t fear with exams rather, board exams are not different; these are just like your school exams. Just do your best and don’t worry for your results. Prepare for the next without worrying for the past one.
9:-Exercises and yoga: there are some yoga exercises for those who are tense and taking stress. Students should practice these yoga exercises to deal with this problem.
10:-Check your Examination material: before leaving for the exam check for all your important things like pen, pencil, board roll number etc.
11:-Planning: proper planning is required for the board examination to score 100%. So plane it before the examination.

Try to get a good night’s sleep. Avoid last minute cramming the night before: it’s usually ineffective, adds to your nervousness, and will result in you waking up feeling tired. sleep early..
Make sure that you have everything you need for the exam: spare pen, pencil, etc., a fresh battery in your calculator, any materials for a seen/open book exam, a watch. . and other.
Try to see the main points of each topic as a whole first before delving into the detail. Details are easier to remember if you understand how they fit into the larger framework.
Review the material by reciting, from memory, orally, mentally or by writing your answers.
If dont understand,
Try to discuss the main points in one topic with a friend.
Try to look at copies of previous exams, which may be available in the library.
Do practice questions of the type that you will be writing - within the time limit of the actual exam.
For essay exams, practice organizing answers into a quick, short outline of the main points..focus the exam. THATS ALL.. HOPE DO THE BEST..

Before I come to the class, I could not well in English. I was more comfortable speaking in Malay. After just 1 months, I learnt how to pronounce well and understand the sounds of letters. I can now speak English much better and is improving everyday. The English programme here is very good.
Her lessons were extremely interesting, efficient and absolutely fascinating. She always practiced what she preached: her methods of teaching us demonstrated the desirable teaching methods for our use. Her lovely personality also contributed to the success of her teaching and lessons. She made every student feel like one of her own. Having her as a teacher was a blessing! I wish her all the best.

First of all, my most important advice is to be really strict with your timing. In any exam you should allocate your time to be commensurate with the available marks. This is a two hour exam, and two parts are worth roughly equaly marks. Therefore you should spend an hour on each. Part A has four questions - therefore you should spend 15 minutes on each question. Even if you know a lot about one of those topics, it is crazy to spend more time on that because the maximum number of marks that you could get for any one question is 12. Even if you put down 50 correct points about GIF files, you would still only get 12 marks for that question. The essay in part B is worth over half of the marks for the exam, so make sure that you spend the full hour on that question.

2. When is your energy level the highest. This is the time to tackle the difficult bits.
3. Do not postpone the difficult topics.
4. Attend to routine things like tidying up, at low energy times of the day.
5. Do not just read. Make notes. In fact summarizing and condensing notes focuses your mind.
6. Discuss topics, after having revised them, with your classmates.
7. Use diagrammatic representation where ever possible. You may find this easier to retain.
8. Take a 5 minutes break after every 40 minutes (Certainly after an hour!).
9. Take a longer break after every 3 hours of study.
10. Eat well.
11. Play some game when you find time. This helps you relax.
12. Do your best during the revision.
13. On the examination day, do not worry, even if you feel that you remember nothing! Give it your best shot, you will be able to recall once the questions are in front of you.
