    When you are a fairly high achieving student, and you do that one class test and it comes back as a D/E and your whole mood and vibe just f***s up because you made it really silly errors. i know its not my actual exam, and i'm predicted an A for the subject (chemistry) but sometimes it just gets you down.. anyone else find that little tests get to them ?? xD really really annoying. on the up side, i didnt do that much questions, could of done a lot more. but even then i felt i did enough to secure an A turns out NOT lol.

    I know how you feel you work hard and that that class test goes badly and all that motivation goes away and you end up feeling inadequate and getting that a feels a distant dream.

    The worst is when you get 0 on a 30 mark test (and you are a predicted grade 9 student!) and the kid in front of you says 'even (insert name here) got 0 marks so my 12 marks is not bad!' And you felt crap anyway and that idiot (predicted a grade 5) made it 10x worse! I actually tried every question and thouht i got over half right, basically instead of using one specific formula (sine rule) i used a multitude of others

    Ahh, so nice to know that I am not alone! The thing is, in the exams i don't revise for, i get really good marks, and when I do revise, i get crap marks. So when I am confident, I end up feeling like i have fallen flat on my face when my results come back! Sorry, it is kinda nice to rant because even my friends don't understand entirely and i don;t wanna talk about something that they can't empathisize with/talk about.
