Desperate undergrads pray to 'bell curve god'

Desperate undergrads pray to 'bell curve god'



SINGAPORE - It seems desperate undergraduates at a local university are willing to do whatever it takes to help them in their exams - including giving offerings to the "Bell Curve God".

The bell-curve refers to a grading method where students' grades are assigned based on the relative performance of their peers.

A netizen, SanFran, found photos of a make-shift "shrine" installed in one hostel room, with offerings of biscuits, cup noodles and other snacks placed on it.

The photos were taken during the year-end exam season.

One picture even shows a sign hung up on the ceiling, that "cursed" whoever entered the room without a food offering for the "Bell Curve God".

While funny, it also shows "how desperate students become during the all-important finals!" mused SanFran.

Superstitions and pre-exam rituals aren't a new phenomenon.

When it comes to exam time, students are just as superstitious as professional athletes.

A 1989 Canadian study linked superstitious beliefs to anxiety and fear of the unknown, according to US site, Book of Odds.

when you are forced to the wall, you will be desperate to do anything, even believing in anything.

I remember when I was younger, there was this myth whereby you burn your textbooks and drink up the ash then you will become smarter.

Praying to this Curve God, only proves that they didn't prepare well enough.
