How Did My Exams Go?

Over the last week and a half, I’ve been frantically packing in my practice exams. There’s really no point for these; they’re just to let you know how much you know, and reassure you that you can maybe pass at the end of the year. Considering my lack of study, I did surprisingly well!

Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first. Classics (studying ancient Rome) was the subject I was most concerned about. I felt like I barely knew anything, and wasn’t prepared at. All. I managed to pass my essay on the Aeneid (the text we read), and my essay on architecture… Fail. I’m a nerd, I don’t fail much, but I failed this, ughh.Patrick Sad.gif

Moving on, quickly! English was apparently one of the worst results they’ve marked in a really long time, and when we were being told that only 6 people got excellence, being the top grade possible. And I was one of them!!! In both my novel and my film essay I got excellence, so I’m really happy. 

In history, I got merit (the second highest grade) in my essay on the Munich massacre, which I think I should be able to improve by the real exams. And my resource interpretation was an excellence, yay!

Media studies was another disappointing merit, but no one in the class got an excellence, so not too bad at all. Again, I’m pretty sure I can fix it up easily enough. 

Why do you care? Basically, this is an indication of how well I’m going to do in the proper exams. And that’s hugely important, because it not only determines if I pass the year, but also if I get university entrance. Looking at these results, I should breeze through, so it’s good to know I don’t have to worry! 



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
