Mock exams are curious things. The sound serious. People think they are serious. People take them as challenges. Teachers set them up as challenges. They are considered to be as tough and important as exams. They ignore the ‘mock’ in ‘mock exam’.
When it is a mock exam, one simply cannot and should not take it seriously. The results have no significance. One can learn very little from them. They just… are. They just linger there. And do nothing. Don’t matter at all. They simply sit there and wait. In the corner. And yet most people care.
This makes people nervous. It becomes a matter of success or failure. And there is a high standard to success. Alas, being nervous makes it even more difficult to succeed. This I see as counterproductive.
Not caring an eggplant about it appears to be more efficient. Loses the tension, the nervousness. Causes serene calmness. This, in turn, helps creativity fly and thoughts whiz through in a straight line.
Hence I find it better not to care. It gives a better viewpoint for whatever you’re doing. And success is imminent.
