I guess so.
It is just really difficult, but if you do do it then I'll bow down to you as I will never ever be able to replicate that feat.
(I've done it several times, so I'm talking out of experience here)

It's actually real easy if you don't postpone your studies to the last 3 or 4 weeks before the exam.

All those seem really strict for a $14 cube. I consider myself a very good student, but I know that I would never get a 100 on a final. Unless the finals where you live are way easier than here? Another alternative is to just buy the thing yourself. It’s not that hard.

Lol our school started in April and we're giving our Midterms. My mom and dad don't accept that, and since it's near an exam, I want to earn the cube, not buy it. A person can buy their way to the top of F1, but can still be slower than everyone else. I prefer to work hard and get the cube. And no, the finals in my school aren't easier than the PSSAs or any other types of finals. (Yes, I've given the PSSAs). 14$ here is roughly 1029 rupees. That's... yeah. Plus, whats the point? My mom and dad already set the goals so I can't change their mind. I did that last year for a 4x4 and a 2x2. I usually ask for cubes after annuals, but since the 2021's coming up, I asked for it after the half yearly (that and the syllabus is easier). My mom and dad always set high goals for anything, so I try my best to excel in those. Plus, I have a backup plan if the ducks fly north: Christmas

Alright, so the first week of exams is over. That means:

-Math
-English
-S.Sc
The second week has started, and due to a storm, Science got delayed until Friday. So that's good. Bad News: I have 2L first. Which means its going to be hard. On the bright side tho, there's going to be no 5 mark questions in Literature! Yahoo! Science is going to be good, English is good, and Math went the best, so I think I might be able to get the cube!

Had a session yesterday which was ruined by the Big Chungus song, but made decent progress. Still stuck on that 21.xx average, so I'm aiming to learn full OLL to aid me in getting to Sub 20. The thing is, I just have these pauses after every step, which is annoying, but I can't stop it. So I'm also practicing slow solves. My V Perm alg is slow, so does anyone have any recommendations for a new V Perm alg?

Practice will help get rid of that, but for the first couple of steps, try inspect the cross fully and consistently do it blindfolded if you haven’t already, and use that time to start looking for F2L pieces.

ARGGGHHH I have a competitive exam, the ISTSE on November 7th! So that means even more pressure now! And it's only two days before another exam, and its 5 days after yet another exam! When will I get to cube? And I think from next week onwards, we'll have holidays, but we'll be getting Holiday Home Assignments! I just can't get a break to cube!
