Objective Proficiency p 79. Education Idioms

 The last time you took an exam, did you stay up all night the night before, studying until the very last minute? If so, then you pulled an 1_________. But maybe it was worth it and you got perfect, or nearly perfect marks, in which case you can say you passed with flying 2___________. Or maybe during the exam you couldn’t remember anything you’d learned as your mind went 3___________. When you finally got into bed the next night, exhausted from all that studying, did you fall asleep immediately and then sleep undisturbed until morning? If so, you were out like a 4_______ and you slept like a 5_________.




KEY
1. all-nighter



2. colours 



3. blank 



4. light 



5. baby
