Exam result was released about a week ago. As usual, my inbox is full of messages from my student, thanking me..( betul2 ke ni?) for passing them. Of course, those who failed, never ever thanked me for failing them..he!he! but they would cursed me instead. Anyway, normally I will tell them that I did not give you A or B or D or F. You earned those grades. I marked your paper as prescribed in the answer scheme.
I received a group of students of my previous sem class about appealing their failed paper. I advised them, if it is D grade, may be you can appeal..but if if it is D-or E or F, i guess there is no point of appealing. The chance of upgrading your grade is very very slim..or may be no chance at all. Some thought that they did well in the exam yet they failed. I said , may be your efforts is not well enough.
I believe to pass in your exam is not only needs your efforts and doa but also your luck..your rezeki.. Most of the times, what you thought is not what you got.. believe in your self, put enough efforts, abstain yourself from making ma'siyat, respectful to your parents and make doa as much as possible..insyallah, if that is your rezki, you will get what you dreamed for..
my personal note on this, I dont pray of getting A or A- in my paper. I only pray that i will pass my exam...I study according to my own pace..no stress, no jealousy, no envy, no competition..always enjoy my life to the fullest.. :-D
