So yesterday I sat what I hope is my last exam for the semester, and I am hoping that somehow I really luck out with it and do well enough to pass the subject for which the exam was for.
So, I went in more unprepared than I thought, but still somewhat confident that I would be able to do well enough.
However, I had to think a lot harder than I anticipated, making it a bit more challenging than the exam should have been.
I read the questions that I had to answer a few times,making sure I understood which ones I wanted to answer and didn’t make any errors of judgement, then I decided to try and “word challenge” them, writing something almost close to being stream-of-conscious.
Unfortunately there still had to be some semblance of knowing what I was talking about and I think I was able to get something akin to that across, but there was a lot of filler words used in what I had to write.
Right now, I don’t mind too much.
I’m more concerned about whether I’ll have to do the exam again or not than I am about what I wrote down on the exam.
It’s been a busy few days and now I’ve begun a new job and all I can think about right now is about how I should be getting to sleep so I can get up early so I can go to the beach before work tomorrow, but in order to go to sleep early I need to stop writing and getting the next post ready, which is something I want to do more, but I need to get sleep so I don’t feel so tired tomorrow and also so that I can get up early to go to the beach and go for a swim before I start work, but then I wouldn’t be able to finish this post, or the next one, therefore leaving more incomplete things for me to complete, so instead of going to sleep, which is really what I should be doing, instead I’m going to finish writing this post and then get onto the next one.
Then I will be able to go to sleep.
Exams are a fun thing.
Well, sometimes they are a fun thing.
I don’t enjoy the ones that feature a lot of writing, because they feature sections that ask to you “write five-hundred words as fast as you can, with little regard for coherency or quality”.
If more of them had questions like that, I think I’d be able to do amazingly on them, leaving the markers baffled at how one person could come up with so much tripe.
I would then be allowed to skip some years of study and become some sort of brilliant genius at whatever it is that I would be studying, because any subject that would allow that would not be a subject that I’m currently studying.
The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:54:66
Written at home.
