UGH, I finally took the ACT test today (a standardized examination for college admitions... test... thingy)
I have been dreading it for weeks. I had to wake up at 5:00 this morning so that my friend and I could go to Orem, Utah (a city that is just over an hour drive away from where I live) to take the test at 8:00 A.M. I was glad to see 5 of my other class mates though. (I go to a TINY high school, there are only 116 students in grades 7th through 12th, there are 21 in my class)
I feel bad for my friend who I went with though. she was dismissed from the test because her cell phone went off about a half-hour in (it was apparently turned off, but some phones STILL ring when they're off "or so I have heard") They made her leave AND they didnt score her test!!!
I don't have a cell phone, my town doesnt get service from any businesses because of the mountains that surround us. If you want to make a call, you have to drive just outside of the city limits and you MIGHT get service. And since I hardly leave my home (i am too busy knitting) I don't see a big need to have a cell phone.
oh well, she is in the grade below me, so she has a lot more time to re-take the test.
I have spent the last week after school studying with the math teacher for the math portion of the test (which I think I did pretty well on
) but i never even realized how difficult the science part would be. Usually science is REALLY easy for me, but there were things on there that I have never even heard of (and I got a A- average last year in Chemistry)I started to read the questions and was like
Yeah, I am only sure that I got 2 questions right on that section (give or take)
I'm just soooo glad it's OVER
