Taking an examination
Last month I took the Civil Service Examination, to make the story short, I failed. But I made tirelessly effort and preparation for that exam though it was only self-study. Some of my friends who already passed said they spent their time longer on Maths and Vocabularies. So I took their advice, researching on the best of best reviewers on internet.
I spent 2-5 hours per day studying. It was 2 weeks of preparation, then I said to my self that I'm very prepared. Then the examination day has come, I took paper-pencil test, because its the only available in our region. Some of the first questions seems 'all about yourself' but as it goes page by page its getting harder and harder. There are some vocabularies that I didn't hear or read or encountered in my whole life. lol. And some of the maths are very tricky. And there are questions that all the 'answer options' are correct. Wow! this kind of test, very challenging. But again, unfortunately I failed. Maybe I should double my effort preparing for this kind of examination. Try and try again and again. :)
