ot then, men and their moments. Rather, moments and their men, " writes Erving Goffman in the introduction to his groundbreaking 1967 Interaction Ritual, a study of face-to-face interaction in natural settings, that class of events which occurs during co-presence and by virtue of co-presence. The ultimate behavioral materials are the glances, gestures, positionings, and verbal statements that people continuously feed into situations, whether intended or not. This is an interesting account of daily social interaction viewed with a new erspective for the logic of our behavior in ordinary circumstances.

Well the exam result is not the most significan thing in the shor run, what is more important, and this certainly applies to me, is a way in which we are ble to carry ourselves in those exams and how we are ble to deal with pressure to deliver a good piece of work in a short space of time.

The point made me realiz that the exams themselves, the culmination of 3/ 4 years of hard work and the way that students are able to perform under the intense pressures is very character forming/ destroying and truly testing at times, the experience of which we can use in the future.
