School life since August 2008---Exams!!

DPS has the tradition of Monday Tests, a test every Monday. I had my Monday tests since 28th July till 25th August. On 12th August, my Chemistry marks were out. I got 19.5 on 25. 19th- Computer marks – 20 on 25. Maths marks came around 21st- 33.5 on 40, although I deserved 31.5! On 20th, I had Physics test- I didn’t do well at all. I had not expected good marks. On 9th September, I got my Physics marks- 9 on 25. I had failed! This was the first time that I had failed in some subject and I know that this was the last time too. English test went well. There was a small problem of time management. I got my marks on 2nd September- 32 on 40 and some nice compliments with stars and smiling faces from maam. This was the end of the first cycle of Monday Tests.

My half yearlies started from 17th September and continued till 26th. I had not done well in any subject may be except English and Computers. Physics was the worst much much better than the Monday Test. I had just 3 minutes left at the end of my English paper. When I told this to maam, she said I should be very happy that I was able to manage my time well and had 3 minutes left! Normally in 11th and 12th, students complain of a lack of time to complete the paper.

29th September- English marks out- 83.5 on 100. there had been a calculation error in my paper and I had got 86.5. When I got it corrected, my classmates said I was a fool to go and get my marks deducted. But I know I was correct. Why should I get marks that I don’t deserve? My nanaji also supported me in this bold act of mine.

Physics marks were also out the same day. I got 35.5 on 70. I had expected 46. Papa said there is surely an improvement but next time it needs to be much more.

Chemistry marks were out on 30th. I have 46.5 on 70. This was half a mark less than what I expected. For all those studying in CBSE XIth, I have a question: Why do we not see a car moving in the form of a wave on the road? Correct answer is that car doesn’t follow the dual behaviour. My answer was, because the road is straight. Isn’t this commonsense??!!??!!

On 3rd October, my computer marks were out. I had expected above 62. I got just 58 on 70. My nested for-loop has become quite weak. Almost all of my programs were incorrect.

I am expecting my Maths paper on Monday. Surely above 75 marks in that.

After 106 days and 10 hours aaaand 50 more days

Well, it is quite late for this entry to come, but I think it would still be interesting for them, who really understand it. On 14th August, I came to know that Papa is coming here on 3rd September. I was very happy. Over the next two weeks, whenever I talked to him, it seemed he was completely confused about which clothes of mine he should get here. Around 1st and 2nd September, I got appointment for Papa from all my teachers, so as to enable him to meet them when he comes. I was out of the hostel since 29th August. That week, I was unable to concentrate in class (both at school and coaching) atall, always thinking about meeting Papa after over a hundred day period.

On 3rd, Papa’s train was late and he reached home around 6 PM. At that time I was in coaching. Finally after 106 days and 10 hours, I met papa! We chatted till around 1 in the night. Next morning, he went to my school to meet the teachers. Papa saw my school for the first time. On 6th, papa and I went to Pragati Maidan by metro from Dwarka, for visiting the 14th Delhi Book Fair. For the first time ever I saw such a large book fair. I bought a daily calender of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie there. We spent around 6-7 hours there! Now I am looking forward to visiting the International Book Fair. On 8th, we took a stroll through the local markets. It was hard to believe that papa was leaving the next morning. The whole day, on 9th, I didn’t feel good. I called up Mama and told her so. She said, don’t be sad by thinking that we are not together today, be happy by thinking that after a month we all will be together. Later at might my mathernal grandfather (nanaji) called up and told that mama has been crying since I talked to her. I didn’t know what to do. Is this what they call, ‘the pain of separation’?

Around 10 days later, on 20th September, my ticket was confirmed for going to Vellore in my Diwali vacations. I am very happy now. I will be seeing mama and Pinky after 158 days!
