Exam | Microfiction

Student revising illustration - "Exam" microfiction

I’m totally gonna nail this. I’ve got a photographic memory, and everyone knows that exams are piss easy with a photographic memory.

I barely even had to revise – it all went straight in when I was in class. I only had to flip through my notes once. For luck, I suppose. Just to be on the safe side.

Let’s have a look at this first question, then.

Oh. That’s a bit of a toughie, actually. No matter; I’ve got plenty of other questions to choose from.

It’s getting warmer in here, I swear.

Hm. Second one’s a thinker, too. I’m sure I could do it if I put my mind to it, but let me check the other options, first.

I hope my deodorant holds up; I’m sweating like pig.

What? I don’t even know who Jane Austen is, never mind how she presents attitudes towards marriage. This extract isn’t familiar at all. Pride and Prejudice… isn’t that a movie? Why is it on my English exam?

This is a nightmare. I have no idea what any of this means. None of these questions make any sense.

Why is this happening to me? I’ve got a photographic memory…

Shit! Someone must have wiped my SD card.
