My exam in theoretical physics techniques today (a maths exam- basically) did not go so well, i didn't fully complete a single question, it was 2 hours long, but i could have done with more time and i could have done more. The module mark is 100% on the exam- so its not looking good.

Anyway- here is Mr Bean doing an exam (do you watch Mr Bean in America?) (its 10 minutes long sorry i couldn't find a quality shorter version).

There will always be another exam, another day, another dollar (pound). Don't beat your self up too bad cause I know you have put in alot of time and energy and one exam does not show the true you. Yes we watch Mr. Bean over here in America, lol.

lots of love, Nathan

I'm sorry you feel like you did badly on an exam. I felt that a lot last term. But it's okay that this happened. You've had a lot going on. Don't give up. You're doing the best you can do right now.

They look a bit over-dressed at that college, I must say. I can relate to the hurried dash to get to the college all too well also.

Sorry to hear that you think that you could have done better, but theoretical physics is way up the ladder from my math ability.

Heck, I have felt the same way over algebra. That doesn't mean that I couldn't be very good in another academic field.

In my upper-level coursework in my college major I have a 3.36 GPA over 11 classes, but as yet I have never passed college algebra.

Try to concentrate on and try to do your best on your other exams and don't let feelings of inadequacy or the "what-ifs" overcome you.

You can still accomplish your goals if you try.

We will be here if you need us.

Your friend in recovery,


If it ever comes to that, could you tutor me on algebra???

I could use the help!!!

While in Uni, for one of my exams, i drew a huge hang man (stick figure) with lots of swear word in different speach bubbles coming out of his mouth. And then across the double page drew a grave yard sence, with some Vampires, Zommiees and ghoshs. (All stick figures - I cant draw). Then on the last page i wrote in small letters, "help i'm a fish"!!

The exam I was taking was "Computer Networking", which was ment to last 3hrs. But you cant leave in the first 40mins. I couldn't answer nor did I understand any of the questions written on the paper. After 40mins, I bang my head on the table and left.

You went in and gave it your best shoot, you did what you could do, and kept trying. Well done to you. Am proud of you dude. End of the day you only have to prove your self to you. What others thinks doesn't matter.

Good luck for the next one, We are all here supporting you.


If your not livin on the edge your taking up to much space!
