block exams; a modern-day method of torture
developed by a panel of adults who believe that they know best. block exams
consist of several subjects' exams in a row (maths
etc.) with a break between each one. block exams last for anywhere between 2 days and 2 weeks, and usually cause mass stress
and panic in students. social life
is impossible during this time, as all student's free time will be spent trying to learn a whole semester
's worth of work (of which half probably wont be needed anyway). most block exams start at the age of 16, although some mean-spirited schools
will start at the young age of 15.
