17 Quotes to Power You Through Your Studies

Posted by

SPM trial exams are here. This is the moment that you have prepared for the past two years. In fact, so many people have reminded you that you have to do well to see how prepared you are for the big exams in November.

The semester is getting more stressful. Feeling tired and overworked, all you want to do is climb into bed and get some long good rest. After dreaming about your bed for 5 minutes, it is time to come back to reality: revise your notes, complete your assignments, prepare for quiz and exams.

Maybe, what you need above everything is a little motivation to continue revising for trial papers or complete your assignments.
