I've just finished my final exam in grade 10 and I'm fully prepared to enjoy the last month at school.
How did I feel about the exam?
I feel disappointed.
I failed in Chemistry, Math, and English.
I had difficult times reviewing chemistry, I was sick when I had my math exam and I couldn't finish an essay + a question where I had to arrange the sentences that make a news article (which was hard).
I prepared so many things before the 4th term started, which was a month before the exam. I made the schedule, but things got so out of control-- assignments, tests, projects and homework burdened the whole month while we're supposed to spend time reviewing, which left my schedule unused and I struggled to accomplish everything as best as I could.
I could blame them all but how's that gonna help me?
All I did for years was the same thing: spend more time for make summary, review and practice. It's just recently, I lost focus, which is a capital no when you have exam coming up on the way. There were things that haunted me; streaming, college, how to improve my academic portfolio, should I join the SC or not, dreams... (dang it!)
So I barely mastered everything. I was like scanning the words, analyze them then try to remember it after.
I predicted that my score will be less than semester 1, even compared to previous years. I just hope that my average will be more than 70 and I don't fail in a particular subject. I wish I would regain my focus completely since I will only have to focus on performing well , pick a college and the course. I won't have to think about the streaming because once I left grade 10, my path at least would be clearer *fingers crossed*
By the way, I will not be having music, art and ICT as special subjects in grade 11. It sucks. I love those subjects, those have been sort of a runway for me from so 'tight' times. I always performed well in those subjects and they gave me confidence.
Well, what else could I do?
It's been a great time having those subjects for, like, 10 years, in my school life. I won't forget it, especially the teachers, who have special place in my life.
The last project involved music, art, ICT, and mandarin components: we had to write lyrics, compose a song, create an album cover, translate the lyrics into mandarin and combining them all, we had to make an album as a big group.
This is the song that I wrote and composed, sung by two of my groupmates:
