Don’t Look Back

Today is a good day. Despite being Friday the 13th.

For the first time, I think I’ve got an A on my biology test. What a nice way to start the semester.

Looking back on last semester, I’ve noticed that their is an interesting and depressing phenomenon that occurs when you are doing poorly on a test.

So you’ll be going through the test, and on average you’ll answer about three out of every five questions.

However, it doesn’t seem that way to you. Because of your healthy optimism, it feels like you’re answering quite a few problems, possibly even enough to get a B on the test.

So you keep working, and at the end of it, you’re feeling good. Then, like a good student, you turn back to check and to go over those “very few” problems that you skipped. That’s when a brutal reality check comes in: it turns out that you’ve skipped 40% of the test!

Normally, you would go in and make educated guesses, and barring that, mark “C”, the lucky answer. But noo, it’s not possible now, becaues your teacher happens to dock a quarter point for every incorrect answer.

Now you’ve got to make a gamble – leave it at 60%, or risk guessing, even educated ones.

Whatever happened to that hope that you once had while taking the test?

    There is a famous quote.

    “Guessing is like a seastar. It provokes the mermaid and eats the plankton. Therefore, it should die.”
