It still hasn’t hit me that today is one of my last exams I’ll be taking in college. Now, exams and I aren’t the best of friends because well, I never did well on them lol, especially in any of the chemistry classes. I remember when I first changed my major to Chem education and took my first science exam in college, which was Orgo of all things, I remember how bad I did. It also hit me that I’m going to have to work my butt off, and it was a lot harder than I originally had thought it to be. But for all those countless hours of studying and disappointing exam scores to say the least, it helped to realize that the grades weren’t what was of utmost importance to me, but rather that I was doing this to continue doing what I love to do, which is teaching. Don’t get me wrong, grades are important and we should all strive to get the best grades we can, but I realized it’s not something we should constantly fret over. There’s only so much that we can do once an exam is done, and no matter what happens, the grade you get is a number at the end. And I guess above all, when an exam is done, you can’t help but feel a huge weight being lifted off of your soldiers.
For people taking exams, good luck to everyone and I hope all of you ACE them. Do the best you can and give it your all. In the end, isn’t that all we can do? We’ll let God take care of the rest.
I guess the most ironic thing about exams is after the course is done, I have a greater appreciation for what I had just learned. And well, the fact that I may be giving exams in the future haha.
