Believe in Yourself-A story

Students Pre-Nursing


here is a story that will hopefully make you want to believe in yourself more, for the rewards will be great.

all a's

a professor stood before his class of twenty senior

organic biology students, about to hand out the final


"i want to say that it's been a pleasure teaching you this

semester. i know you've all worked extremely hard and

many of you are off to medical school after summer. so

that no one gets their gpa messed up because they

might have been celebrating a bit too much this week,

anyone who would like to opt out of the final exam today

will receive a 'b' for the course."

there was much rejoicing in the class as students got

up, walked to the front of the class, and took the

professor up on his offer. as the last taker left the room,

the professor looked out over the handful of remaining

students and asked, "anyone else? this is your last

chance." one final student rose up and opted out of the


the professor closed the door and took attendance of

those students remaining. "i'm glad to see you believe in

yourself," he said. "you all get 'a's."

-good luck this semester, and be confident in all you do.

My prof did something like this. He told us that he would be giving us our grades, and if we were happy w/them that we could leave w/o taking the final. I opted to stay, as did my friend. We both got an A for the semester!
