Today is my birthday...and I BOMBED my first test for the semester

  1. ....Yup, I'm so smart. Class average was a 20 (out of 25) and I scored a beautiful 15.

    It was hematology. Alot of lab values on there, and tons of "initial" s/s stuff. I always do bad on ititial s/s/ versus late s/s.

    The stuff I hit hard wasn't even on there.

    Chin up my mum says. Ya, easier said than done.

    Awww.... the first tests are always the hardest. You'll do better on the next one. And hey...it's only the first test. Not the last 3 tests at the end of the semester when you've just got to pass in order to make grade 'x'. Don't worry about it! Just enjoy your B-Day!

    None of that stuff is easy when you're first learning it. Don't be hard on yourself.

    Do you get your tests back? If so, look up the answers, and write the correct ones beside your answers (different color of ink is good). Then review from it.


    Ask the instructor for tips and ideas on what to do?
