The luckiest day for the unlucky: Camb O-, AS-, A-Level exams end!

Karachi, June 17, 2008: According to A-Level student Nabeeha Baig, Friday the 13th of June 2008 the last day of the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), should go down in history as the luckiest instead of the unluckiest day.

"There is nothing, absolutely nothing that can ruin my summer," she said. "Uninterrupted fun, here I come!"

Whether the exams went well or not, A-level, AS-level and O-level students alike are relieved the agony is over. On the last day, the exams were for Economics, some Science subject practicals and multiple-choice questions (MCQs).

One of the challenges is, however, getting used to the idea that the exams are really over. This will take a few days at least. Armeen Tinwala plans to clear her head from all the studying and relax. "I intend to continue becoming a lazy workaholic again," she said.

For some students the decision was easy. They flocked to Zamzama's cafes and joints as soon as their exams ended, some not even changing out of their uniforms. Others are already booked for travel with family.

Some will stay back in the city. "My theme for the summer is and has been productivity for past eight years. Summer breaks give me the opportunity to feed my skills the attention they require. And what is the harm in making some cash? I might just take on an interesting project," said A-level student Abid Abbas. For students like him, charity work or workshops would be the way to go.

Mehk Ali, another A-level student, felt liberated. "A huge burden is off my shoulders. In the summer I plan to party, watch lots of movies and television shows and work out for a bikini body!" Another student has plans to overindulge in diet chips while watching classics such as Casablanca over and over again.

Hanya Beg, an O-level student, claims that she is looking forward to her internship at a local newspaper. "I am going to spend time learning new things and meeting new people. I will also watch every Nicholas Cage movie ever made," she declared.

And then, there was the eternal arsonist's refrain heard every year from every batch: "I will burn all my notes and all those things that remind me of the A-levels," said Taimoor Tariq. In reality, however, the books and notes gather dust in the house and are only chucked after at least one semester at college.

"I intend to make endless lists of things to do and have the deepest pleasure and ample time to finish absolutely nothing," declared Juhi. Rosie Jessani felt the same way. On the other hand Alai Naseer plans to spend a productive summer trying to complete his movie. "I've been working on my film for a very long time. Now I can finally complete it without being bothered about education and other worldly things."

However not everyone is embracing their new found freedom. O-Level student Anmol Fatima said that she will spend her summer biting her nails. "I just got done with my O-levels which means that although I am free till September, I still have my AS and A-levels to fret about. I think that education will be the death of me."

Ahad, another O-level student said that his summer was not going to be particularly fruitful either. "I'm going to be worrying about my A-levels and new schools. What if my grades are awful and I'm forced to give my AS and A-levels privately?" Daily Times
