Ouch... Bad exam

I got up yesterday at 4.45am, drove with my sister to Göteborg, and by 8.30am I was writing my math exam. I thought I was well prepared and expected to do well, but it turns out that I didn’t do well at all. Not sure if I failed, but if I passed it was close. Not at all what I wanted. Now I have to wait for the results and plan for making a second attempt. Sucks. I really only went fishing twice!

This is a pretty big setback for me. With one final exam left I would be able to start moving on, since it would be possible for me to ask responsible professor to give me the last exam at any time. They could even send that exam to the embassy in Beijing and let me do it there! I came back to Sweden to do this, spend the last 4 weeks reading for it, and then I’m not sure if I passed. Disappointing. Nothing to do but keeping up the faith and get on with the reading. I want to get this over with and move on. The good news is that I will probably have a new chance to write that exam in just about 8 weeks.

I will start reading on that other exam, start planning for my thesis, and start looking forward to Wen’s arrival in a week or so.

Good luck Johan. I know this situation between exam and results. Often you fear the worst, but it turns out ok. I will cross my fingers for you.

Ps. Go fishing again. It clears the mind ;-)
