1. The Deceiver- These are the students who declare before the exam that they did not review yet their eye bags clearly suggest that stayed up late studying. They just don’t want others to expect too much from them. If they get a low mark, then it’s quite acceptable. If they get a high score, then this may mean that they can still manage to get good grades without studying. It’s like ‘Oha, mataas pa din grade ko kahit petiks ako”
2. Show Off- They are the ones whom you think is the most-prepared among the class. They walk into class with confidence. They will share what they have studied and you’ll be quite surprised of the topics they have covered to study. You’ll be intimidated of course on how ready they are. Sadly, they just don’t deliver during actual exams.
3. Religious- You will see them inside the church every term exam, or even offering eggs to monasteries. They call all saints they know to intervene during exams. Simple, they are no yet ready for the examination.
4.Silent killer- The mamba. They are quite. They are in the corner just observing what’s happening around. They won’t share if they have studied or not. They don’t participate on last minute group study before the exam. But if it’s results time, they are, most of the time, on the top of the list.
5. Praning- They studied everything (cover to cover) yet will still keep on bugging you that they are not ready. They will keep on asking you what you have studied. They will compare notes. Nothing should be left not studied.
6. Team Leader- The concerned. They facilitate last minute group study. They make sure that everybody has fair knowledge of the topic covered in the exam. They want everybody to excel.
7. The Crammer- You can see them in the corner intensely studying. They walk into class without reviewing and just rely to last minute review.
8. Normal- They are just the typical student. They will honestly tell you if they have studied or not. They shall participate in group studies if needed. What you see is what you get.
