Today’s results gave me a dejavu feeling.
11 years ago, I was pretty sure I was going to fail my PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examination). I kept all my books, preparing to re-take the exam. Then the results came, and oh, wow.
Ok, my results today aren’t fantastic. But I was expecting I might get an ‘E’. Yesterday night, I even had a nightmare about it. I was wondering if an ‘E’ is considered a fail, or was it ‘F’? Today’s dream was better. Today I dreamt that I had a C, and there was a person in charge of each person’s grades pulled it up to a B just so I can graduate with second class upper. But I woke up, remembered that no one would look at my overall grades and pull me up just because they saw that I was very close to a second class upper, that everyone would just mark my work separately and give me whatever grade they deemed fit without coordinating among themselves to ensure I could pull up my CAP, that everything was electronised… Thinking this, I once more braced myself to see an ‘E’. Then I thought again, maybe God is that moderator?
And as you might have guessed, I did better than expected. But it was a really very close shave!
