With final examinations coming to an end, many students are rejoicing over their newly-found freedom. From planning the upcoming vacations to partying hard in their farewells and annual parties, the end of exams has an ecstatic effect on everyone.

Being a teacher myself, many varied reactions have come my way from my students and their friends – and some of which have compelled me to put together this post.
