First of all, I’ve gotten many encouraging emails, Facebook messages, and blog comments about my exams. Thank you guys so much! ❤
Unfortunately, the exam last Thursday was much harder than I expected; several key questions were based on the more obscure topics in the book that, from the look of the homework problems, should not have been important topics upon which to test the students. But there are plenty of German students in the class who were also unpleasantly surprised by the test’s difficulty level. Please pray that the professor and graders have wisdom in assigning grades (and hopefully curving the exam)!
But now, if you are a praying person, I need more prayer. I’m studying for an exam scheduled for Wednesday, which will be my last exam of the semester. This exam I have to take in German, and I have to know the vocabulary well enough to write out answers in German.
I have emailed the professor a request for an oral exam, which means I would go to his office, he would ask me test questions, and I would answer them verbally (and would be able to ask him for question clarification and vocabulary hints). So far, he has not responded to my email. Please pray that he responds quickly with an appointment for an oral exam, and please pray for my ability to learn all of this stuff–class content and vocabulary–by whenever my exam time ends up being! I’m so nervous right now. I want exams to be over.
UPDATE: The professor for the class of my last exam has offered me an oral exam appointment! God is good! And to those of you who were praying for me and/or who left encouraging comments, thank you! ❤
