Boys and girls gather before the examination hall just half an hour before the starting of examination. Rickshaws after rickshaws and tongas  leave the boys and girls there. Many come on their bicycles. In no time there is a large gathering.

They tell them how they should write their answers to questions. Their friends advise them. They tell them their own experiences. They also tell them some examination tips.

A Scene outside the Examination Hall


Examinations are said to be necessary evil. They unnerve even the most redoubtable ones, but they are indispensable.

A scene outside the examination hall offers a mixed bag of experiences. It in its own way bespeaks the merits and demerits of the examination system which need not be discussed here.

About half an hour before the start of the examination the students start moving towards the examination hall.

As the hall is then closed, they sit on the grassy plot m front of the hall. Some of them move close to the hall to have a look at the chart installed outside the hall. They study the position of their seat in the hall from the chart or table concerned. Some even peep through the windows to have the real sight of their seat, if possible.

A few minutes before the start of the examination, there is a fine hubbub of students outside the hall. An official, often the sweeper or peon comes and cleans the floor and desks in the hall. Then a clerk comes with files in his hands.

About fifteen minutes before the start of the examination comes the superintendent and then the supervisors start coming. The first bell often goes about ten minutes before the start of the examination. Then the students are allowed to enter the hall and occupy their seats. Their pockets are searched at the hall gate as they enter.

At the start of the second bell the examination starts. A few students can at that time be seen rushing into the hall. There is a pindrop silence thereafter outside the hall.

The candidates start coming out of the hall about half an hour before the end of the examination. As the examination ends, there is again a great noisy hubbub outside the hall. Slowly, the students go away and then again the place wears a deserted look.
