Today, we had our first test in nursing school. It was in Assessment. I studied my butt off for this test last week. I stressed myself out so bad, I ended up with a 77.8%. It's not great, but it's passing. I'm so disappointed in myself because I missed questions I knew that I knew the answer to, but decided to overthink them and read too much into them. I'm not happy about this test grade, but consider myself lucky because some people did not pass. I guess I just let myself down because I was so anxious and scared. I ended up making wrong answer selections to questions I knew the correct answer to simply because I read too much into the question itself. Now that I know what to expect from here on out, I'm hoping to still aim for an A- or even a B+. I don't want to be barely passing at 75%.
Has anyone else felt this way? Please help!
