A Clockwork Exam

With insincere apologies to Burgess and Kubrick

"Very soon now, the exams will cause the subject to experience a death-like paralysis, together with deep feelings of terror and helplessness. One of our early test subjects described it as being like death, a sense of stifling or drowning, and it is during this period...that the subject will make his most rewarding associations between his catastrophic examination-environment and the ignorance he faces."
