Stress Free Finals!!! - page 2

I'm kind of sad, but mostly excited. I did the math today after my ATI test. In order to get an A in my class, I would need 105 points out of 100 on my final exam. So, that's knocked out due to impossibility. In order to get a B,... Read More

    Yep, it's a pretty awesome feeling having that stress taken off your shoulders! I went into my finals this year needing something like an 18% to pass...studying did not happen, lol.

    HAHA I had to make a 57 to pass and a 76 to get a B. I said I had a stress free final, but OMG the stress that I had during and after the final was insane. I mean, logically you know it's totally possible to pass - almost impossible to fail w/o just freaking out and bombing the final- but still just the "what - if's" that get to you! We got to go over our final to see the correct answers so I waited around for everyone to finish just so I could KNOW for sure I passed! Nursing School - DONE! Now on to NCLEX studying and job hunting!

    96.5 in Fundamentals! Woo! Now to collect my thoughts for med-surg and pharm in less than a month. I bought a 3-ring binder just for my course syllabus today. Intimidating!

    Well, I had to make an 82% on the final to make an A in the course and I made an 82% exactly. Mission accomplished.

    I had to make an 88% on my 4th lecture exam in micro to be exempt from the final. I studied my butt off for 2 days and made a 98 and finished the class (lecture and lab combined) with a 97%. Knowing I DON'T have to take the final: priceless.

So, that's knocked out due to impossibility. In order to get a B, I just need to get a 60 or greater. That takes SOOOOOO much pressure off of me. No matter how good I do, I can't get an A. And, unless I bomb the final, I've got my B. I can live with the B (after much internal therapy sessions over it), and don't have to worry about a thing. Woohoo!!!!!! I'm still going to study a little, but not as much as if the A was still possible.
    I'm stressing so much right now. I've got my Pharm final and ATI tomorrow. Two more tests on Friday and the last one on Saturday. I have a 94 average in all my classes and the finals will make the difference between an A or B on a grading scale where a 92.5 is an A. I want so much to just not care.

    Final was today. I got a 96% and ended up with an 88 in the class. I'm actually a little sad that I kicked butt so much. I mean, if I'd just done that a couple of tests ago, I could have gotten an A. But, oh well. The absolutely cool thing is that my entire class of 62 students all passed! We kick booty!!!!!! There were a few that needed above 90 to even pass the class and they all did it! I love my group.

    That is the best feeling in the world! I have my health assessment final tomorrow and was informed by my instructor that I could bomb the final and still keep the B that I have. : ) Congrats!

    Does your school give out plusses and minuses? An 88 would be a B+ at my school. Still great!

    No, I got a 3.0 for my 9 credit hours and that's that. It's okay though, since I've never gotten a B, my GPA should still be good.
