Somebody ought to be slapped for this. I don't know who, but they'd best hope I never find them...
Scantrons are my friends. There are several reasons for this:
- The answers are provided for you. Particularly in math exams, if you're stumped, you can work backward. Lovely.
- I'm a quick reader. Therefore, I can finish scantron exams in roughly half the time it takes most people. The only times I will take the full testing period on an exam is if I don't know the material at all (in which case I am actually more likely to guess using what reasoning I can, which takes only minimally longer), or if the exam also includes written questions. Written questions are my mortal enemy - essays in particular. I possess utter loathing for essays.
- If I know the material, my first answer (unless I misread the questions or options entirely) is almost always the correct one. This posed a problem my junior year of English, where my teacher insisted that I go back and re-evaluate my answers. I sat, did nothing, and turned it in again after ten minutes or so. For some reason, this made it acceptable. I pointed out to her what I was doing, and that I was getting the correct answers. She stopped telling me to slow down after I completed it, then to the side wrote down my 'second attempts' after carefully re-evaluating each question. I talked myself out of almost a third of the correct answers, pointed out to her that I had a habit of doing so if allowed to second-guess myself to death, and she shut up. 'Twas a lovely thing.
Bio exam... meh. I've taken excessive notes in that class; if I don't know it by now I never will (cramming has never worked properly for me).
Kevin visits next Friday. *purrrrr*
