School + Knowledge Bowl + Other Stuff = Busy

I've been busy for the last three months with alot of things including school and a National inter-school Knowledge Bowl tournament.
I'll start with the school. It's my final year of high school so alot of preparation has been going on for preparation for the CXC Exams. Just finished doing my Mock (Pre-CXC) Exams today. CXC exams are long and tough. Each subject has an individual exam and each exam has two parts; Part 1 which is 2 - 3 hours long and Part 2 which is 1 - 1.5 hours long. Doing 11 subjects, think you know how much hours of sitting down in exams I had to do.
However, exams aren't the only thing that's been keeping me busy. There's this national tournament between all high schools in the island every year called Knowledge Bowl. Each school chooses its best 5 students to represent them as a team. The schools then play each other in knock-out matches where questions on anything is asked (Science, Business, Math, Current Affairs). The training is tough. Have to do 4 hours of training everyday after school. The bright side is, we're finally in the national finals. Great prizes too.
Then in between school exams and Knowledge, I've been working on the School Newspaper and Inventor's Workshop.
Just that I'd blog that since I haven't blogged anything in a while.
