One Day to Go

It is one day to go for the mother of all exams (if you didn't know, it's CAT I am talking about), but here are a few questions I definitely am trying not to think about:
  • How is the paper going to be tomorrow?
  • How am I going to attempt it? 
  • What will the paper pattern be like?
  • What if I get through?
  • How will I get through?
  • Can I get through?
  • What if I don't get through?
  • When was the last time I said this was not a serious attempt?
  • When was the last time I said there is always hope?
  • What is my chance of getting lucky, when 269999 others ask for luck on the same day?
  • Do I need luck?
  • What if my friend gets through and I don't?
  • What if I get through and my friend doesn't?
  • What if the paper pattern changes next year to an online test?
  • What if the paper is leaked?
  • What if I forget my hall ticket at home?
  • What if I wake up and realise it is 11:30 already?
  • What if there is a curfew tomorrow?
  • When was the last time I tried to not think so much? 
Luckily, CAT has only five answer options to each question. I rather take that. And the best part is that failing and not passing have two different meanings tomorrow and the choice is only mine, if I come to it. 

For those of you who are giving it, "Carpe Diem" (I loved the word Astrodominie, thanks)!

I don't know if it is coincidence or something else, but my group of close friends wish each other exactly the same way.
