Exams for the January semester fall in Ramadhan. I thought it would be no biggie until I find that the format for my exam question is a take-home examination, in the format of an essay (of course). I had thought to take leave on both exam days but competition is tough to apply for it. In the end, I managed to secure one of the days and wished hard that the roster maker would put me in a zone where it is less busy the next day. At the end of Day 2, I managed to write up my essay in between patients and complete them later at night at home.
Mental note: fight for leave. use whatever means necessary to have that leave. writing an exam answer in between patients is not a good idea.
On both days, the exam questions are released by 10am. Students have 24 hours to complete and submit it online. Therefore, on Day 1 I did have time to get groceries for my empty fridge at Lotus. The rest is the battle with time. To complete the essay, fetch the kids and prepare for Iftar.
