Examination Fever





For most of the year, most of us had been allergic towork; apparently there had been a history of such allergies in the school.

Throughout the spring there had been quite a few casesof Exams are stupid, which proved highly contagiousamong friends.

Then in late May, one or two of us suffered a mild attack ofGosh, is it really next month? and we seemed to give that to the others rather rapidly. You could tell how it was spreadingfrom improved attendance at lessons.

An even more serious outbreak was that of the very infectious I dont know a thing two weeks before. At about the same time everyone seemed to catchYoure no good! from the teachers. Then there was a bout of I dont really care followed by a few chronic cases ofMy parents will kill me. This again proved very catching; half the class was down with it in the week leading up to the exam itself, and it had reached epidemic proportions by the Friday before.

By this time, those who had been suffering fromItll be easy for me had made a total recovery.

That Friday there was a What if Im suffering from amnesia? scare,and this had developed by Monday into a touch of I cant even remembermy own name.

There were also, of course, the normal isolated cases ofMy pen doesnt work and several pupils had a sudden fitof Wheres the toilet?

Afterwards there were a couple of complaints ofI know Ive failed, but generally the worst seemed to be over. Such diseases are rarely terminal. And after all, we had a convalescenceand recuperationperiod of six and a half weeks to follow.
