PREPPING FOR EXAMS: DAY 8/15
not gonna lie i’m starting to stress out a bit more now.// revised anatomy and physiology of the ear and listened to one of the recorded lessons for anatomy today.
reprobé una materia de relleno:(
Ain’t I the most self-centered person to make my final paper for my Digital Writing class a long piece about my father’s life (no question mark because I already know the answer to this)
My heart is pounding
I opened the link of the exam 10 minutes before it closed oh my god
I just woke up too
did I mention it was a science one ?
Soooooo, I’ll be writing my final exams During the week of 23 November.. 😱😱😱
With the grace of God I know I’ll be able to do my best, make my family proud and earn my honours degree 😊👨🏾🎓🥇💪🏾
The next 33 days will be faithful, productive and positive in Jesus’s name 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾💫💫
One of the scores we were supposed to analyze for the music history exam didn’t show up in canvas so I just left this in the text box👀
Yesterday I received my results back for a English Writing examination I took in July.
I will prefix this by saying: I know my results are ‘great’ in comparison to others who tested at my grade level. I know there are many students who work incredibly hard and do not achieve as highly. I know standardised testing is flawed. I know I am privileged to have formal education. I know I am privileged, period. This list goes on. But I am disappointed in my score, and I also know my feelings are valid. I wish those around me (parents, family, guidance councillor) would hear me, and respond accordingly, rather than dismissing my thoughts because they feel the expectations I set for myself were too high.
I scored in the 96th percentile.
Ignore the top line, the line highlighted in blue shows my exam results. The grey box denotes the range of scores at a 10th Grade Level, excluding the top and bottom 10%. The black line is the average score, and the black dot is my score. For those who do not know, I am 15, I completed my required high school curriculum earlier this year and unless Covid is still a global threat, I will be leaving for college in the UK in June 2021. I do not work at a 10th Grade Level.
I feel this result has really knocked my confidence. I know next year I will be working alongside some incredibly gifted students, and I’m beginning to question whether I will be able to keep up. The more I think about this, the more I worry I will flounder socially too. I have never had a close peer-group, and I’ve often been a target for bullies. I presumed college would be different, but for the first time I’m questioning if all my presumptions, and all the things I took for granted about college life, were wrong. If students can find the time to party and socialise, I’m sure they can also find the time to bully. I know bullies run companies, I know they run countries, and they are mostly college educated. People get a rush from making others feel small at any age, and I hope I am not a target again.
Again, I understand what I am complaining about is nothing important in the grand scheme of things. Nor is it a setback, and it will not influence my college opportunities. I’m often told I make other people feel uncomfortable or foolish when I talk, so it is nice to have a blog where I can speak freely about whatever comes to mind.

My first term exam started today. I had Key Issues in Journalism which was okayish. Well, I can’t say I did really good in that exam, but I’m not entirely sad. I just woke up after a two hour nap because I didn’t sleep yesterday.
I don’t have any idea for tomorrow’s exam that is Media Perspectives. I have to listen to 18 recordings and time is very less. Tbh, I’m seriously freaking out for the coming three exams. I don’t know how it’s going to be. I’m just going to try to complete atleast ten recordings.
( and also yesterday was my birthday. Obviously I didn’t celebrate it because I spent my entire day infront of my laptop, studying for the first exam.😕)
I Technically Passed…BUT
So I sat the exam on Saturday and I earned enough points to pass… But I’m concerned about my report.
It was 39 pages long but I forgot to include the output of every command. :/ I hope this isn’t enough for me to fail as I included all local/proof screenshots and still wrote a thorough walkthrough for every machine.
I really hope this isn’t enough for me to fail as the exam is very tiring both physically and mentally and -apart from forgetting command output in some cases- it was very detailed.
I personally think they shouldn’t be as strict on the report: they’re forcing you to do it in a sleep deprived state just after intensely focusing on the hacking aspect of the exam. I’ll be quite annoyed if I fail.
I’ll update once I hear if I’ve passed, hopefully with good news. :’)
