30 days of hell

23 Sep

a student correctly described how i felt abt the upcoming mountainous challenge ahead.

“sounds like it’s going to be a month of hell” he said.

and i said, “it’s going to be a month of hell”

sec 4 and 5. and inbetween, the not-so-impt sec 1 and 3.

ive got one student on holiday in another country. i asked her friend why, and she said, “cher… we also need a break you know” and i stared at her, wide-eyed, in utter shock.

“you need a break in between your N level papers!!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?”

no comments. seriously.

someone mentioned to me “if students dont study, what can you do?” and i thought to myself, if students dont study, there’s nothing much i can do.

but…………. i cant stop doing things just because students dont study.

and you know what, i’ll squeeze every ounce of energy, every last drop of sweat, every second of the time i have to drive them through this one month.

after my papers end, rest assured that i will fall sick. but hey, what does it matter. just that, if i have to do this every single year, i might die of hypertension sooner than i think.

its going to be a month of hell. cheers to that stan.

    Well, if the parents r not concerned abt their child’s progress in the N-Level’s, let’s put our effort for those who have concerned parents who are truly worried abt their child’s studies. I did look at the class and I’m happy to see that although it’s not 100%, but there is half the class who really wants to get distinction for Math and are working hard.

    So let’s give our energy to these pple and help give them that higher chance of getting a ‘1’. And I’m serious, tht’s why i’m happier in class this week.

      someone said, stomach digests fats. i stared. someone else corrected and said stomach digested proteins. i asked by what enzymes, and i got a wrong answer before the next right answer. this is a basic question, and they had to trial and error an answer……… i muttered under my breath, “die die die”. i will still do everything i can, but, im really worried that i have not made these kids achieve their true potential. and it is undeniable that a large amount of effort has to come from them too and i cant do anything abt that. sigh…. 10 days left for bio paper… im freaking out…
