Behind them, the other two boys keep mumbling the same thing. Someone else in the group asks everyone to be quiet else we would be drawing attention and get caught up with questions.
A few minutes later teacher begins asking simple questions to good students instead of asking simple questions to average students and complex questions to good students. The students are afraid of when they will be asked and what questions. Minutes feel like hours for students who don’t know anything. After a few minutes (hours in the case of students) the students who don’t know anything are finally questioned.
