Ansab Ali – Year 2008 (A’Level)
Four years ago, when I came out of the examination hall after my A level exam from FGS, it was the classic cocktail of elation, jubilation, relief and sadness that I have ever experienced. Little did I know that this would be the end of one of the most amazing periods of my life at this alma mater? I remember coming home that day, my clothes soiled with ink strewn on me during the ensuring festivities (yes, don’t ask……), afraid that my dad would respond in his usual way. However, that day, he said to me, smiling, “Son, today, you are released from the pressure cooker!” I laughed then, but today as I write this; realize that there was truth in his remarks.
