Do you ever feel this way after a test?

Posted

We had a mid term exam last week that covered 7 topics - diabetes, diseases of the bowel, cardiac, blood pressure, peripheral vascular disease, shock and stroke. I actually was pretty well prepared for 6 of those topics but more or less dropped the ball on the bowel section. Because of that, I had a greater fear that I had flunked the entire test (even bombed on it)...and I was surprised when I saw the grade (80) and that I passed.

Do any of you have a similar feeling - where you struggle on one part of the test and it ends up casting a feeling of doom and gloom over the entire thing?

Similar experience earlier this semester in phamacology. After an exam which I thought after taking I had failed, turned out to be an 84% Darn NCLEX style questions. Who knew that there would be more than 1 right answer and the basis for selecting the correct one is better and best reasoning. I don't know if that makes sense to anyother students but that's what my Fundies instructor told us. Long gone are the kick back days of fact recall for test taking :)
