WST @ SJSU: Results

So remember that English test I took at SJSU?

I passed!
That sucks!

Why?
I was aiming for a waiver, not just a pass.  I mean, to pass is nothing.  Anyone writing and reading at a college level - which you should be if, y'know, you're going to college - could pass this test in their sleep.  But I wanted to waive the requirement to take the class completely!

I got a 73 on the multiple choice portion of the test, out of 75.  So that was passed with flying colors.  But on the essay portion, I only got a score of 9, when an 11 or 12 (out of 12) was required to pass.  My boyfriend tried to make me feel better - "The test is rigged, no one really gets 11 or 12 because they want you to pay money to take the crap class" - but I'm still mad.  I wanted that waiver!!!

And so it's true pride comes before a fall
I'm telling you so that you won't lose all
