I got word this week that my final exam for my Master’s will be November 7. I read the email twice to make sure I gleaned all the information, then I shot an email back asking for more specific information. I finished my last class over the summer, so the material isn’t as fresh in my mind as I would have wanted it to be, especially for such a high-stakes test.
I have contacted my other two professors to make sure I focus on the right parts of each course, and I am starting my review tonight. All this material is from the last two years of my studies! We covered a lot of topics! From curriculum development to sheltered instruction to Latin American literature, we studied it all!
Am I nervous? A little. Will I pass? I have to. This four question, three-hour marathon test is all standing between me and accomplishing a goal I set for myself. The bottom line is that I’ve come too far to let an exam beat me! Game on!
