Wow wow okay holy shit it has actually started! Finals are here, and today I took the first of ’em.
We were supposed to be there fifteen minutes early, so I decided to come thirty minutes early… just like everyone else. Okay cool.
Go and sit down in the sports hall, with all these separate little tables set up for us and whatnot. Huge stack of paper for us to use. All the nervousness-inducing goodness.
Some teachers tells us some stuff, nothing that important, and then it was almost half past one. “We’ll wait one more minute!” Had to start exactly on time just as the entire Dutch student population.
The exam consisted of two texts. One about experiencing time and how it affects society, and one about the non-written ban on “accessories” on and in houses. We had to answer questions about the former, and make a summary containing points from the latter.
Questions: no biggy.
Summary: shit it’s a summary, but that’s cool, I got this.
Quickly jotted down my answers on the test itself after finishing, so I could take those home and check it with the answers. (Those get published online as soon as the exam in question is finished.)
So I got home, did the checking, and surprise surprise, 38 out of 49 points. I guess that’s about a 7 once they made up their minds about the way to grade this exam.
Jolly good start, I do say. Got the rest of the week off, and I really need that. Got a shitload of finals squashed together in the second week, so I’d better make sure to prepare properly for those. (Oh God biology and physics!)
Good luck to those who have others exams to do this week!
