Lahore School of Economics

A distinguished seat of learning known for high-quality teaching and research

Lahore school in the Exam Mode

Amilia Sohail

The midterm exam week calms down the otherwise hyper active campus life. It seems there are very few people around, consequent of the midterm exam week at the Lahore School.

Students busy studying for their exams. We spotted large number of students in the in the libraries - comparing notes with each other, going through note books to quickly review with the intention to absorb and retain as much as possible, quick looks to see what the other person is studying, another glance at mobile phone to check for SMS from a friend to hint at some important topic that must be prepared for the exam. 

Faculty members can be spotted hurrying towards the auditoriums or their offices, preparing to conduct the exams and invigilators eager to reach their duty spot and get organized. You can never ignore the presence of peacocks strolling gracefully; they are a permanent feature, complimenting the beauty of the Lahore School Burki campus at all times. Even at times as stressful as exams it is pleasant and relaxing site. 

Well, I think form the students’ perspective it is the best time to measure one’s own progress and know ones strengthen and weaknesses. The nice part is that there is still time to improve and score better grades till the finals. Good Luck to everyone.
