Wednesdays. The middle of the week which I have noticed tends to be a day institutions appear to take it easy. Its the day when lessons at college are all somehow made to end early and even my future university (God-willing) held all of its open days on a Wednesday. What is so special about this day?
For me, Wednesdays mean an evening of teaching at the tuition centre and a very late dinner. However, today has proven to be quite interesting. Remember the exam I supposedly had to take in order to prove I deserve a pay rise? Well due to some admin error, I was not entered for it. I have no idea why but it was only when I asked for the exam details that I realised it will not be possible for me to do it.
The funny thing was I was looking forward to this IGCSE English exam because firstly, acheiving an A would have meant a pay rise! Another reason was because I had planned on doing this exam without any preperation as it is purely a Language exam so in theory, good English skills would allow a candidate to do well. I wanted to test this theory out and I was relishing this three hour writing challenge.
Since there is now no exam for me to enter, this means two things. I will not have to wake up extra early tomorrow morning to travel to the tuition centre in order to take it and secondly, I am now in the position to ‘demand’ a pay rise. Let us see how this turns out on Sunday. Perhaps this event may prove to be the catalyst for change in my teenage working life.
Meanwhile, I have my real A-level exams to prepare for. Rest assured, I will not have this calm a reaction if I was not entered for those exams! Although, I’m sure I do not have to worry as the examination officer at my college is efficient and I’d like to think, a friend.
Until Next Time,
A Worried Student
