Making Comparisons in English
There are several ways to make effective comparisons in English. Using these expressions with animals is one of the more interesting and colorful ways to do so. Here are some of the more common metaphors and similes in colloquial use.
"Big as a Whale"
With some species weighing up to 180 tons (200 short tons) and measuring up to 98 ft. (30 meters) in length, whales are some of the largest animals currently known to man.
"Blind as a Bat"

I didn't really plan to maximize the chance of myself getting prefect scores as I believe overdoing revision is a horrendous waste of time, especially when there are many more important things I have to work on, and they are a lot more interesting than just repeatedly stimulating the retrieval process of different sets of already-encoded data to enhance the performance of their corresponding search algorithms in my brain. And I can't predict the future, and therefore I can't say for sure that I will get 800 for both subjects. But it is highly unlikely that I won't do well. The pre-university syllabi of mathematics and physics are rather elementary. (Topology is not even in the A-level H3 maths syllabus. And SAT maths L2 doesn't even have calculus.)
Something pretty interesting happened before the test when I was in the examination room.
Awaiting the test to start was quite a mundane thing. ...
