Studying is Gambling, y'know?
One of the professional blogger once mentioned that in a blog, there are 4 season. I believe right now, in crazyhamster I am in teh winter mode. The winter season is a time that I will hardly write any critical arguments and articles due to the immense workload given by our DEAREST TEACHERS. However, this blog will still be updated regularly, mostly about personal life and experiences. Who knows, I may even post up some "mugging" tips for my readers to enjoy.
I had always wondered whats so great about "mugging", the "IN" section of our school subscription version of the Straits Time glorified the students who mugged or study really hard during the Os or any other exams. They call it EXTREME mugging. Yea, it is to draw parallels with the "extreme sport" cateogry which meant that the students are seriously hardcore who does not give a damn about their studies.
So whats the weird thing over here? none of those featured made it into the top junior college - Hwa Chong Institution. Granted, now that RJC had surpassed us in terms of performance for the latest A level exam, we were the best for last year. Or rather the most difficult to get into. Those featured are those who took their Os in the past, so if that was the case why is it that they are unable to make it to the top notch school? Call it choice, I call it luck.
Luck plays an extremely important role in every examination or tests. If you are lucky, you can study really little and still score because you are studied the areas which are coincidentally tested. So how much of such luck do you have? HOW MUCH?
So in the end, we still have to study to increase our "luck", the more we study, the more area we cover.
It is just like 4D isnt it? The more we study, the more numbers we place our bets on and the probability of winning the first price is much higher. Oh what about toto? Who knows we may just win the "first prize"?
They all said, we want to buy a hope! Thats why compulsive gamblers are keen to buy many many hopes. What about studying? We want hopes too! So mug more topic, to have more hope!
This is to my fellow student bloggers who may be facing with the greatest stress that you may feel in your entire "less than 20" years. Study hard, study smart.
