Even this challenging situation would ease

Where there is will there is way. If we really concentrate on our studies, we would not fall for any distraction. My house was on the side of a motorable road. There used to be umpteen processions, temple and church festivals,weather disturbances and many things like that. It was with all those that we studied and scored good marks too. During the Sabarimala season there used to be continuous 41 days celebration in a nearby temple with all kinds of programmes from dawn to dusk. The loudspeaker from the temple used to face in our house direction . Temple and church festivals used to be a common fest for the tons people then. In addition to this,the school at the other side of the school was a venue to host any major event from inter school arts festivals, sports meet, local arts and sports club events etc and there will be flow of people and sound emanating almost every week end and holidays. NCC , scouts and guides camp also used to be there. Our house was not electrified also.
I used to believe strongly then(and even now) that 'education thrives in adverse circumstances'.
Especially when doing the revisions I wanted absolute silence. But I was ok with some sounds while studying. I had the habit of watching TV or listening to music while studying. So those sounds where fine for me. But of course sounds of horns is too much.
If it was me in this situation, I would have shifted to a hostel or at least to a friends or relatives house during the exam time or little before that. I would never be ready to fail in an exam due to these issues which I might be able to get rid off. You can also sit late in the school and study for a while and at home try studying at midnight as the number of vehicles on road will be comparatively less then. Like I mentioned in an earlier thread of mine, necessity is the mother of invention and hence we will find ways when the situation comes.
