Tuesday I had a Biology test. This is the first test I’ve taken for a few years now in the college setting. I’ve never been really that great at science (or math). Basics I can get just fine but anything too extensive gives me a migraine.
This test covered 4 chapters and one of them was on chemistry mainly. I took chemistry at UCF. I didn’t enjoy it – at all. Good thing that was just an intro to course (which was all my major required). The other 3 chapters for this biology test were on basics of biology, evolution, taxonomy, etc.
The test covered way more of the chemistry part than I thought would be on there. I studied it all pretty evenly though. Still, all the chemistry words and such sounded/looked similar when I was staring at it on the test. Ever get this feeling of panic?
After the test, our professor said that she’d try to get them graded by the next day. I worked a very long shift yesterday and forgot about checking on the grade until this morning.
I login to our online portion of the class, and see my grade is a 91. I blink. What? A 91?!? Then I see the class average is a 53 and the median is a 68. Wow. I did way better than I thought and I made an A! I’m still in shock.
Just to make sure my eyes weren’t confusing my brain in some weird psychological way (which I have a test on that next Monday), I had my Mom check it to make sure. Yup. I made a 91.
This A on an exam really makes me feel like I can do it, and do it well. Hopefully I do as well on the following tests and other biology courses I have yet to take before becoming a RN.
