The clock was ticking. Every second that passed by seemed like a death sentence. Time was short, I had to get my paper done on time. A bead of sweat trickled down my forehead.
All that existed in the  world at the moment was me and the question paper on my desk. I was completely disconnected from everything around me. I had a  race to win; the race against time.

I tightly gripped my pen and began writing as if my life depended on it. My arm moved back and forth like the rain-wipers in a car, as I frantically filled every line with words. All  the nights that I had spent cramming for this exam would finally pay off..if only I could remember what I   had studied. I froze. My mind  went  blank. I  couldn't find the words to answer all those frightening questions.

I had spent the whole night before the exam preparing and desperately cramming everything I could from the gigantic course. I had an unlimited supply of  coffee to keep me  awake. I looked like a horrendous creature of the night-dark circles the size of dinner plates under my eyes, my hair a complete mess and red, puffy  eyes to add the cherry  on top. Even the Abominable Monster's outlook would  pale in comparison to  my horrifying state.

I kept asking myself, 'Was it 1943, or 1934?' My mind whirred in confusion with a cyclone of incoherent information. I felt jumpy and paranoid. The slightest noise startled me right out of my seat. I kept anxiously jigging my leg and tapping my head with my pen-as if that would magically bring all the answers to my mind.

"Ten minutes Remaining!" resonated the invigilator's frightening voice in the spacious hall.

With that announcement, every last ounce of hope I had left abandoned me. The light bulb in my head refused to switch on. The darkness in my head was reflected in the emptiness of my answer sheet. All I could do now was wait for those agonizing ten minutes to pass by. The ten minutes that I would spend in self-condemnation. Despising myself for thinking that I could outrun time itself-once again. I was internally torn with regret for being the procrastinator that I am. When would I finally mend my pathetic ways? As the last minute slowly went by, I silently resolved never to put myself in such a position ever again-only for the fiftieth time.

Though, I still had time to improve myself-Didn't I?
And do you know what time it is now?
Comment-and-tell-me-what-you-think-time! xD

This is such a prehistoric piece of mine, its not even funny 0_0
I wrote it as an assignment for my english class in high school(2007!), but this one is an edited/improved version of the original composition!

Oh, God. I hate days like those. Way to capture the adrenaline-fuelled panic of every student's nightmare test.
