Yesterday after my partner and I presented our 12-min spiel on Protein and its benefits, I looked to her and asked “are you ready for the exam”? To which she said she knows just about everything possible for the heart. I reminded her that only 21 of the 50 questions were on the heart section and that 17 were on the respiratory and that was the second priority during my study time.
And then she had the deer caught in the headlights look on her face and she said “what do you mean respiratory stuff; I thought we weren’t covering that chapter until the next exam”.
Then I turned my whole body towards her and said (in an Elaine style only seen on Seinfeld kind of way) “SHUT UP, did you not study the respiratory stuff?” Then her look said it all no, she hadn’t studied the respiratory chapter and yes she was screwed!
Then in split second, I could see it coming next with her face getting all red, and I said “Don’t cry!” I looked at the clock and saw that she had little over an hour to cram all that she could into her head about respiratory; I even suggested that we get a small group formed to fill her brain with the needed info. She chose to go home and watch youtube videos to help her cram during that hour instead.
When she got done with the exam, her score was 68%, not good for her, not good for anyone.
Now what kind of upsets me is the fact that at the beginning of the last week I went to her house and supplied her with a copy of the exam review and popular possible questions that were suggested to be studied. I know that I included the respiratory chapter, so now I’m thinking she didn’t even look at that paperwork I gave to her when preparing for this exam, otherwise she would’ve known that respiratory was going to be tested.
Ugggh, I can’t stand when you try to help someone out and they don’t take your help. I really feel like she could have done a great job on this test if she would have looked at that paper.
