One Down, Final Grade Posted (Bio)

Final Grade: C (163 points)

haha. Apparently, everyone's grade but mine is posted as my final is not included in total points yet.

While I "know" that, my hands are a little cold and my heart rate a little faster. I want to see how I did. The final was not what I expected AT ALL and I had to really think my way through a couple of problems.

For instance, we never talked about biomass and directions given to the class were to make sure to thoroughly understand the notes and not open the book.

GREeaaat! I did that. Biomass appeared on final. Huh??? Before I turned it in, I counted how many problems of the 50 I thought I had nailed. Rechecked every one of those. Then made sure I cross checked against the scantron sheet.

42 that I thought I'd nailed. Then I started checking, the number dwindled to 40 pretty quickly; then another one. But then I found an answer to one question on a movie we had to watch on our own time that I got right, that I had not checked. Up to 39 I went. Another answer was moved to the correct column that I thought might or might not be right. Up to 40.

My magic number is 38. I need 38 on my final to keep my solid A.

Everyone's grade is posted but mine (I take my tests in disability services so it is likely not in the hands of the bio department yet).

I'm nervous... and yet, I have bigger things to do now than worry.

Ochem. Here I come!

Let us know, it is a stressful time of year.
How did other classmates do? I'm not believing instructors very much these days. They say concentrate on one area, and then that is not on the test.

Wow, I just found your blog and I am soo inspired. At my age I worry all the time about how many years I'm going to have left to work. What kind of difference can I make in the time I have left here on earth. I want to just SPEED through every day of nursing school until I get to the end and can REALLY start living. Although I know in my mind that I am living now I just live with a constant sense of fear that it will all end before it ever gets started. Of course I know that fear comes from my mother passing away at the age of 53 three years ago. But I'm only going through nursing school at 39, you are going to be a doctor. Can I just say YOU ROCK!! Maybe one day I'll have a chance to sit and read through your whole blog, but until then I will follow along from now on.

Good for you!
