Did I Get A Flat "1.00" This Midterm?
What's up, everyone? Sorry if I only began writing on this platform after a few days of being inactive. This intro is like a lame excuse, but it is like a minor update on my life. I think that I will only be active this week. And also, I wish I could write an article repeatedly. However, my only problem is the connection.
Going back to the title, I have this speculation that I could get a flat 1.00 in all my subjects during our midterms. There's a chance that I might get it right in my theory, but there's also a chance that I might get it wrong. I sacrificed my sleep and mental health to attempt almost perfect tests in our exams. Although I've received a lot of praise from my classmates and backlash from my relatives, I still keep going from my aim. I believe that knowledge is power, and you won't deny that getting a good grade has better opportunities in the future.
We're already starting our finals round, and sleeping more than 8 hours is my best way to reduce stress. It seems like my brain needed to relax more. Sorry for sharing my rant a bit. I feel like I'm going crazy before overthinking, which I experienced before. I don't know how I succeeded in moving forward, and I hope this feeling will end.
Back to the topic, I'm confident that I could get 94-99 grades this midterm, equivalent to 1.00. I'm a hundred per cent sure that I could get I'm not saying that this is my actual goal, but I guess that getting it is a bit possible as long as I won't get bad grades.
I captured this screenshot on March 30th, but it's already April 3rd. I remember writing it last Friday but couldn't continue because I needed to sleep adequately. You know this feeling where you can't think right, affecting your writing. It is also the reason why I adjusted my sleeping schedule. I don't know if I will write about that, but I hope I can write about it soon.
Anyway, I had quite a shocking experience when I received my Mathematics grades. In disbelief, I immediately reached out to my cousin and shared the news with him, who could relate to my surprise. However, to my surprise, his score was only line 7 compared to my 99 grade. I didn't mean to brag about his capability, but I just wrote it as a form of appreciation to myself. It's just satisfying to recognize that all my efforts from reviewing are worth it.
The next day, we discussed and compared our grades in class. I remember one of my classmates asked me about my midterm results in the mentioned subject, and I was surprised that he still managed to get a 91. He jokingly asked me if I would get a 98 because of my exam results. I contradicted his claim, and the fact is that I got 99. All he can say is that "Wow!" My classmates shared their grades, ranging from 7 to 8, and humorously implied that I shift to another section due to my outstanding performance. Well, I can't assume that I organically got 99 since we got plus 5 for those students who participated in the Foundation day.
And finally, the moment of truth!
My aim to get 94-99 partially seems like I didn't attain it, but I actually achieved it. I mean, our NST 003 and PED 026 grades are not calculated in our GPA, which means the more important is the latter. I got 94-99 in our numerical subjects but didn't get my expected grades in NSTP. My close friend asked if I included her in the groupings since she failed to be present in the documentation pictures. Of course, I said "Yes" since the only thing I updated about our revised requirement is the biodata of the OSY and our picture together. I asked my groupmates about it, and they said they got the same grades as her. I got 89, my cousin got 83, and others got 80-maybe lower than that.
Therefore, I can't assume that I got 94-99 in all subjects but 94-99 in my numerical grades. My average from our prelims is 90.4 (1.25) and 96.2 (1.00) this midterm. As I said, PED 026 and NST 003 are not included in the calculation of our grades. I feel like so a bright, brilliant, and responsible student. Taking a break from writing led me to focus on this opportunity, and I will use it as a strength for scholarship opportunities. Thank you for reading!
