I hope you're happy and healthy, whoever you are :P
Actually today, I would like to talk (or type, if you're the specific kind) about PMR results. No, I haven't received it. It's going to be announced this Thursday. Today is Tuesday, by the way. Which means, it's the day after tomorrow! :O ! Tomorrow's tomorrow!
creeps in this petty pace from day to day..
well, you know the rest. lol
For those who are not from Malaysia, and not familiar with the term PMR, let me tell you. PMR stands for Penilainan Menengah Rendah, which basically means Lower Secondary Valuation or something like that. It is a public exam which form 3 students need to sit for. Form 3 students, are 15 years old, by the way. It is mainly important mainly because our results determine which stream we are eligible to take when we step into Upper Secondary.
I took the exam back in October, along with schoolmates and other Form 3 students nation-wide. I took 9 subjects, and I'm hoping to get straight A's. Of course, when you do something, and you put in a lot of effort and sacrifice for it, you'd want the best results. Who wouldn't, right?
With just 2 days before the big result day, I see a lot of PMR ex-candidates freaking out. Last night on Twitter, "This Thursday" "A's" and "PMR" all made to Malaysia's Trending Topics list. It was fun reading the tweets, hahaha. Some people were like "OMG OMG OMG", seniors who already took and received their results were saying stuff like "Take a chill pill" and "good luck!" among other motivational phrases, and juniors were like "It's gonna be me next year", "is it hard?", "I'm going to start studying really early!" and other stuff.
With results day coming up soon, it's nothing but normal for ex-candidates to be nervous. Me? right now I'm feeling rather mutual. I'm not really nervous, nor am I confident. I just want to go to school, and receive what I will receive. Then, we'll see. I may be saying this today, but just wait until this Thursday. Maybe I would be really quiet, or I can't stop talking, which always happen when I'm nervous. I get really hyper. Well, who knows.
Although I am praying for straight A's , I am well aware of the fact that I may not get it. I mean, I have tried my best, I really did, but sometimes I can't help but wonder, was my best, enough? Truthfully, it doesn't cross my mind that often. I really think I've given my best. I was never the "extremist" type of student. I have my own flow, my own paste that works for me.
Let's just say that if I didn't get straight A's, I'm not going to beat my self up about it. What's the point? I can't change it. It's done. What has to be done, is done. It was finished when I turned in my last paper. I have done my part.
In case I don't get straight A's, my reaction would depend on which subject(s) that I didn't score an A in. I know my weak subjects, I know my strong subjects, and I know my moderate subjects. If I didn't get an A in my weak subjects (Geography and History), it would be less depressing than not scoring in other subjects. I'm not saying that these subjects are less important, I'm saying that it's harder for me to score in these subjects in comparison to other subjects.
I'm planning to take the pure science stream next year. I wonder how studying Biology and Physics will be like. I wonder how being a Form 4 student will be like. I just know that on the first week of school, everything will probably be blurry. Hahaha, happens every new school year. I'll need to re-adapt to being a school student. LOL. Form 4 huh, Upper Secondary. It's like going up a level in a game. People call it the "honeymoon year". Really? I think it's nonsense. Well, whatever. Different people will define it differently.
Also, I have filled a form for residential school. The plan is to get into Sekolah Sains Sultan Mahmud (SESMA), which is my brother's ex-school. He enrolled there after his PMR too. I have friends there, too.A few from primary school, and others from drama class.The school is literally 10 minutes from my house. Maybe less. It's a fully residential school, and you know, fully residential school has it's perks and all. I'm up to try for anything. I may get accepted into the school like how my family is convinced of, and I may not get accepted to that school. There's also a possibility I'd get accepted to other residential school. Who knows, we'll just have to wait and see. Even if I get in, the earliest would be February.
When in situations like this, I say, Que Sera Sera. :)
On another note, I'm going to Johor Bahru because my cousin is getting hitched! Yeah! I've been home ever since the holiday started. On the computer, all day everyday. We're going to drive day right after I get my results. Hooray for family roadtrips!
Dear reader, please pray for me :) Only Allah can repay your deeds, InsyaAllah. Jazaakallah khair :)
So I guess that's it. Until next post, adios muchachos and muchachas.
