Stupid grad school
I had to leave school early today to take a proctored exam for my Masters program (it was scheduled at my local university). This test covered everything I've learned since I started the program almost a YEAR ago--like 4 classes' worth. Now, I'll be the first to say that I didn't review as comprehensively as I should have--but even so, how do you study for THAT? Anyway, our tuition covers the cost of a student taking the exam up to two times for free (after that, the student has to pay the fee)--and thank God, because I'm pretty sure that I'll need to take that bad boy again. Yes, that's right--Jennifer the Super Student, who never failed an exam except once in college because, well, I slept in and MISSED the exam, has most likely failed a test. (I'll pause here for a collective gasp.) It was HARD, yo.
Now granted, this test is simply pass/fail, and I did know a good portion of the answers so it's basically going to come down to guesswork--did I guess enough questions correctly to push me over to the "pass" side? I'll find out later this week but, well, my instinct says that I failed. And that's not good. I'll just look at this one as a practice test, I guess. (Ironically, I took 2 "practice tests" prior to this one and passed them both--but not exactly with flying colors.)
Grad school is mad hard.
