These memories are never forgotten. They will forever be engraved in our hearts. Late night, study sessions spent alone or with friends. The way the classroom looked.

Finally, school is over and books take their places on the shelf. Days, weeks and months pass. One impatiently awaits the results, which arrive in a letter, in an email, on a bulletin board.
