The Most Memorable Experience of 2008 - US Magazine, The News International


I won't forget!

most memorable experiences of 2008…

I won't cheat!

I was taking my Mathematics B paper during matriculation exam this year in April. I got 75/75 marks in Mathematics A. During my Maths B paper, the inspector came out of nowhere and took away my paper claiming that I was showing my paper to the boy sitting next to me. I was extremely terrified for I was purely innocent. I begged him to return my paper, but in vain. He finally gave me the paper of some other boy and whispered: "Solve few questions for him, you'll get your paper within ten minutes!" It was my first ever cathartic experience of horrification. Holding him by his collar, I shouted at the top of my voice: "Give me my paper back or by God I'll take you to the court!" He summoned the examiner to have my paper cancelled! I couldn't believe it was happening to me! Later on, the consequence was really unexpected. I used all my efforts to unveil the truth, and eventually the chairman fired him from his job. Still, I didn't gain my 40 marks back!

To make things worse, even my parents were suspicious that maybe it was really my fault! You know what's more unfortunate? One night before, my best friend had departed. And you know what's most unfortunate? All this happened on my birthday - 30th April 2008!
