Gah!! Hspt!!!

I'm getting kinda nervous...I take the High School Placement Test tomorrow.....*gulp*.

It seems easy, and everyone is telling me it is but I can't help but be nervous. I have a book that tells you whats on it and helps you study and stuff and it's helped a lot. It also seems that the test is similar to ITBS and CSAP....I hope so because I've been doing great on ITBS since I was little.

Just getting kinda nervous..........

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Believe me Mr. vamp, you'll be fine. The purpose is to get you in to high school, believe me, middle school doesn't want you or any other child any longer than it has to keep you. XD The purpose of these tests is to prove that you have intellect greater than a kindergardener, just like the purpose of the high school graduation test it to make sure you can read, write, and do basic math. Do your best, and you'll get into smart classes, and then you'll go to high school.... and then you get more work. :)

Good luck

Yeah don't worry...I just had to take a test sort of like that...

I tried out for a magnet program, for creative writing, and I was really nervous about it because I didn't think anyone I knew would be there too and also I was afraid I'd do terribly and not be able to write. It doesn't really matter much, because I probably won't go there anyway, but I'd feel stupid if I didn't get offered a spot anyway. But when I got there someone from my school was trying out with me, and someone from church, and someone who used to go to school with me a long time ago who I hardly recognized. It calmed me down a lot. And then I think I did well...I wrote a great poem, and even though my story sucked, well, it's pretty hard to write a story about naming crayons lol ;)

So, after a longish, sort of pointless story, the point is look for people you know because it helps a lot. And if it's a lot like tests you're used to taking, pretend it is that test. That sounds pretty...cheesy?? What's the word? Generic? Lol whatever. Anyway, if all else fails, huge deep breaths cure me...and believe me, when you're at a horse show and your horse can feel if you're the slightest bit nervous about that jump, you can't be nervous at all. It sort of just pushes the nervousness away :)

Well I kinda freaked out over nothing...I was off by the test date by a week...it's next Saturday...PHEW!! I have another week to study!!! Which means I also have another week to kiss up to my teachers for my reccomendation forms (well into Regis, Machebeuf dosen't require certain teachers).

But thanks guys! I hope I do great, I think I'll do fine on everything but math...remember the last incedent with my teacher.....but the book I have really helps and has even improved my math grade already!!

If math is your hardest subject then focus more on studying that. You'll do great!

Yeah that's what I've been doing. Most of the test is like Pick out the misspelled word and reading something and picking out what it means.
