Well I took my test on Saturday morning. I was so nervous that I felt nauseous when I woke up that morning. I couldn't eat breakfast because I was afraid of losing it.
I got ready and then laid down on the floor, on my back, and just concentrated on my breathing. I had to stay calm and focused. I had to pass this test and I needed full cooperation.
I drove to the testing cite and signed in. I found my two other friends who were meeting me there. We were all going to be taking the same test. I found the classroom I had been assigned to and took my seat.
After the administrator signed us all in, the tests were distributed. I took a deep breath and opened my test booklet. 100 multiple choice questions and 1 essay question.
I started out confident but when I got to the social studies part, I had no clue what the questions were even asking. I had never learned this stuff and I had to resort to guessing. Some of the really smart splits seemed to know what was going on but I didn't have a clue. I finished the multiple choice questions feeling very bad about it. The essay question, however, was a piece of cake.
Three hours after I started, I walked out of the testing cite feeling like a burden had been lifted off my shoulders. I could finally breathe normally!
Now I really really really want my test results, but I won't get them for another four weeks. I just hope I pass! I don't want to take it again...
