A few days ago, I checked my grades online, and then I saw that my IB Bio average was an 88. An 88 average in any class is really bad for me, and especially in Bio, so I checked to see where my grade fell and it dropped in a practice IA (basically a lab for you non-IB people) because I got a 30/70 in it, or a 43%. After I saw the grade, the first thing I did was to check my copy of my lab again to make sure I had all of the requirements at least three times, then I asked my friends how they did, and then I fell into a deep pit of despair.
I was thinking about how now all of the other students in my class probably have better averages than I do and that now I’ll never have a chance to be within the top 5%, etc.
But then today I asked my teacher why I got such a low grade, and she went to look back at the lab and it turns out that I actually got a 100% and she made a typo ><; I’m so relieved now ^^
But now I’m spiraling back down into that pit again because SATs IN ONE WEEK OMG. I really don’t feel prepared at all >< It’s so frustrating to know that all the questions I get wrong are really silly ones and that I just need to get about 3 more questions right per subject to reach my goal and IT’S JUST SO UNREACHABLE RAAAAGE.
