Answer the following sentence into a simplified text without Phobias (you may need to be creative)

The students walked to school because three of them had a Amaxophobia which caused concern, although several students had a touch of a Bibliophobia, they did not have a Scolionophobia, so they made it to school on time, even though a few of them didn't carry mobiles phones because of their Technophobia; but they were sitting a Science exam so they all needed to be on time, because their parents told them not to worry about any Gnosiophobia which was worse than the Atychiphobia, and knowledge is better than ignorance.
