Schedules are updated every Thursday.
After a long anticipated decision, Lebanese Minister of Education Tarek Majzoub has (finally) announced the cancellation of official exams for Brevet students for this year. This made us reminisce all the “specia”l times we had during examination. Here’s what we remember:
1. Stepping into your assigned school and seeing all your friends panic
Which caused you panic even more, especially when they start reviewing the material last minute.
2. Finding out which class you are, and praying you’re with your best friend
Or with the smartest kid in class, just so…you know.
3. Meeting the other kids from different schools and creating alliances
You never know when you might need them.
4. And when people suspect you’re smart, they try to befriend you
5. Hearing that school bell and shitting your pants
You don’t know what real fear sounds like until you hear that horrible sound.
6. Trying to figure out how you can sneak in that rachetta
W betkoono ketbin nos droos el terikh 3ala war2a ktir zghire. More advanced students printed a mini kteb terikh.
7. Bringing the massive shamel with you to examination
8. Always figuring out how to write your ID number in Arabic
Kenna netlabbak w ne3tal ham eza ketbeena ghalat all week.
9. Your lovely classmates that share their rachetta with
THIS is where it gets creative.
10. The classmate that lies to you and tells you “MANNE DERIS”
*Finishes the 3 hour long exam in half the time*
11. The one who always asks if they have a pen or calculator
When will you learn to get your own?
12. Those supervisors that drink ahwe and give you the death stare
And you realize you can’t cheat.
13. But the other supervisors that make sure no one is passing by while you’re cheating
Ahla 3alam. Wouldn’t have passed Brevet without them.
14. Your “Brevet Crush”
That you’ve had one interaction with and always looked forward to seeing them, even though you won’t ever meet again for the rest of your life.
15. Moms lining up at the gate waiting for you to tell them how you did
“MAMAA 3AMELET KTIR MNIH”
16. The excessive heat in those classrooms
Fi marwaha bas ma bteshteghel.
17. And finally, the message you receive after its all done
And that big sigh of relief when you read the words “Najeh”.
