Form 3 students sit for PT3 exams
PT3 may have only been enforced in 2014, but anyone who has sat for exams would be able to relate all too well to the feeling of getting sweaty palms and last-minute jitters, and cramming as much as you can the night before your papers.
That’s why since PT3 began this week, Twitter has been lighting up with Malaysians from all walks of life sharing funny memes and reactions – so much so that #PT32019 is trending now. It’s like #throwbackthursday, except in exam form.
Finding humour in these “hard” times
Since #PT32019 exam season started, netizens have been sharing the most relatable tweets that are sure to make you go “that’s so me”. See which one of these hits the closest to home for you:
We’ve all been there – waiting till the last minute to cram, and then gobbling up as much info as possible the night before our exams and hoping that we’ll remember everything. Looks like even 10-15 years later, teens are still facing the same hurdle.
Here’s hoping that this Twitter user @xkwoxn managed to get his buddies together for a last-minute study session.

The human thesaurus
There’s always that one person whom we’ve made fun of for taking ever in class. But come exam time, we’d gladly take a queue number to see them for help.
This user @zedlibr did a public service and shared some infographics to help students with their english papers.
PSA: Even if you’re not taking PT3 exams, you can refer to these infographics to sound less basic.

Math, who doesn’t struggle with it? Even till today, you’ll see working adults whipping out their phones to use the calculator app to do simple math like 101 – 43 = ?
If you took more than 3 seconds to answer that question, you cannot math:
The 5-more-minutes snoozers
Stress is a strange thing – the more we’re faced with it, the more we want to avoid it. That’s why the snooze button is public enemy no.1 when it comes to high-anxiety situations.
Hands up if you’ve ever had a tough day ahead of you, but stretched out your snooze allowance till you had to rush to school or work after.

The I-blanked-out student
You prepared long and hard for an important test thinking you’d ace it – only to draw a blank after reading the first question. Then you panic and forget even more. By the end of the exam, you wonder why you even bothered to study in the first place.

You probably don’t know who Norman Vincent Peale is. But you’d be familiar with this quote attributed to him: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
Well, setting goals for exams are a little like this. It’s like making New Year resolutions – we promise ourselves we’re going to work to succeed, but as the deadline draws closer, we tell ourselves that we’re actually okay with half the goal, like Twitter user @shaiw_qian.
