Die Agno's Tick

Diagnostic tests prove that people suck at life. You have worked the entire year, studying for a large AP exam for sometimes multiple classes. Around this time, we take these diagnostic tests to see how well we’ve retained the information over the year, and to see what we have to focus studying on. The AP Psych diagnostics were about 10-15 questions long per section, and there were 14 sections. These questions were each a short sentence, followed by five choices. It took about two hours to do all 14 sections. Most people averaged between 50 and 80% correct. This is weak. You’ve been studying the whole year and you can only remember (or can guess) half of them?

At this point, I stopped writing on Tuesday because class was over. Returning now to this topic, it is extremely lame and apparently I only wanted the satisfaction of being able to say, “I finished TWO blog entries in class today!” This is, of course, understandable, so I won’t beat myself up too much about it. Anyway…

CS was sitting next to me attempting to do the LA diagnostic, which was 90 questions in two sections. Each question had a giant paragraph to read accompanying it, which would make the test extremely long. He gave up after two, because he is weak.

Weak is, as rightfully so, consistantly compared to perfection. Yet damned if I am truly weak, for no mortal man in his right mind could onfront such a beast with the intent of completion. Such is quite simply an analytical failure. -CS
