10 am was the moment of happiness, the moment of misery, the moment of heartwarming moments, the moment where everything shrinks into a ball of confusion. After some brief chat with my friends, we raced straight towards Block Knight to pick up our results. It was not even a dollop of tension surrounding the otherwise serene and calm school atmosphere. Merrymaking and hullabaloo whisked around in the air at TMGS. The class teachers and some students were extremely busy, hands on, while delivering away piles of certificates, SPM result slips and guides for tertiary education.
I was watching my allies, one by one, signing certificates and taking home the result slips. Some walked out from the shade, with broad and bright smiles etched on their faces; the others just raced home at the speed of lightning upon obtaining their results and said no more.
My head was stuck somewhere in the clouds when my friend pulled me back to reality. Gosh, what a queue in front of Miss Ng's desk! Without any hesitation, I headed straight to the desk, almost crumbling down thanks to the immense fear. My CHINESE!!! Oh my gosh! Most of the candidates taking the subject had their result slip marred by the "B" or "C" in the subject, thanks to the ridiculously high result scale set on that subject.
With my right hand scribbling signatures hastily, the ever oh-so-cheerful Miss Ng handed me my result slip and my academic folder.
Tadaa! Here are my results!
|Result slip... but I'm not really satisfied. XP|
I was stunned with astonishment. What? This... was my result? An A+ in Chinese? Unbelievable! I was expecting an A- for that subject since I did not comprehend that subject quite well. A+ in Chinese? I was among the minority with that grade in the nation! Three Yays for me!!! Ha ha! Perfect. A+ for all of my language subjects. Account as well, since I am not a pure Account student. Tee hee~!!! Not forgetting, my History! (Which was often and always a bone of contention between my parents and me)
WAIT! There was a catch! Look at my Physics which SUCKS!!! Physics especially. A-... when I was used to get no less than 80 marks in that subject in school. OH MY GOSH!!! Should I re-appeal to the Examination board again? Should I? As for Biology, Well, I had expected A or A-. I am a bard when it comes to memorizing facts. If not otherwise for these, I would have got straight A+ses instead of merely straight A's, and that I would have been in Kuala Lumpur, receiving big bucks from the Education Minister. DAMN!!! (Greedy, right? Ha ha!)
