The Agony of Defeat and the Thrill of Victory

I was invigilating an examination yesterday, 29th of October 2009 and took some images of the students while they were solutioning for the answers to the questions. The hall was so quiet but I could sense the noises in their minds.


Preparing for war: Outside of the examination hall before it begins,  some students are deeply immersed in their last minute revision.


To some, examination is not just another academic activity but a jihad.

 
The candidates are positioned in a manner that they are unable to see others' scripts.


Then the going gets tough...


and tougher...


and the blank hundred yard stare.


But then the tough gets going...


and going...


 and gone.

May Allah grant success to all of you.
