Hello all...I am beginning with a v new zeal & enthusiasm ....I have prayed endlessly to my CREATOR....I was a good student of my times,hae loads of expectations of all friends,family with ME.

I can also take the exam just for fun & just pass it or something but then GOD FORBID the thought that I cud have given it my 100% wud linger with me on forever perhaps.

I came this time to ask a LOT OF PRAYERS from u guys as well,who are like an extended family ,Pray that I take the giant before my baby comes in this world & not just take it like that...ACE it inshaALLAH. I pray ALLAH grants me the courage & stamina to work really hard,day in & day out of what remaining time I have.

Please pray haan!!

Btw I am listening to DVDs & reading well the text side by side,shall allot time for GOljan 100& 36 pgs & FA daily too!! weakest point to be dealt daily too inshaALLAH!!

Loads of luck & prayers to everyone out there!!

Hi bordetella, keep up the good work.

I read today your journal, the title caught my eye, it´s either now or never!!, I am in a similar situation.

My original period was sep-oct-nov, so I extended the period and now it ends on the 28th of February, and I haven't finished even one read of one subject, I work 7 hours a day mon-friday, and teach a class in the mornings starting mid January, so right now I am facing the option of trying to get this 8 weeks off work so that I can try to prepare for the biggest exam of my life, in only 8 weeks, because I FEEL THAT I AM STARTING FROM SCRATCH, since I lost so much time.
OR, realizing that I won't ace the exam in 8 weeks, and reapplying and repaying it, wich is tough but 2 months is so little time.

Like you I was a very good student, well, not great, but better than average, and family and friends expect so much, they think I can make it in these 8 weeks, but I am not sure I can afford not to work this 8 weeks.

Everyone tells us that we should prepare at 3 to 6 months, 8 hours a day, and suddently I am afraid to go for it in only 8 weeks.

Seeing how you have procrastinated also and that you are full speed now, serious in your studyes gives me hope for myself!!!

Good luck, have a safe wonderfull pregnancy, God bless!


Hello Friends,Thanks a lot SHEENA2005,DOWITE2002 & NOVAK75 for ur DUaas & well wishes,My prayers & best of luck for u guys too!!

U know what NOVAK ,I can understand how u must be feeling ,I had a partner who had to RE submit the fees all over again just because she cud not prepare for the exam on time, I always considered her decision v tough & I guess I at least cannot do that. I shall feel like I cud not even reach a pre set deadline & wus always consider myself a loser!!

BUT Novak there are tough times in ones life, situations more imp than the exam so U please take ur decision with great care & after thinking deeply !!

InshaALLAH ,U will & CAN take the exam in 2 weeks too as they say EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF ONLY U BELIEVE!!!!

SO dear friend just PRAY hard to ur GOD,keep ur spirits high & put ur maximum efforts thsi time.....InshaALLAH with GOD's help ,ur dedication & ur lovedones' goodwishes & prayers U WILL achieve ur goal!!

MY prayers for U ,all of u!!
