The niece had just their first periodical examination last week. The results were good except for one subject. Yes, she gets a very low score. I guess the niece did not study her well on that particular subject. Lessons learned to her because her father is so angry seeing the result. She did not give time to study the subject she failed because she told me that it is easy and no need for her to study. Too much confidence but lacking in study resulting to failure. Although the niece is smiling, I can tell by looking at her eyes that she is sad because she failed on her first periodical examination on that subject.
Out of 46 students, only three gets a high score and passed the examination. Because of the disappointing result, their teacher decided to take removal examination. They are given second chance by their teacher, the chance that the niece should pay attention and study her lesson well to get higher score. The niece did study her lesson the night before the removal examination for if she fails again, her father will not allow her to play anymore. Harsh, isn’t it? Well, this is the best motivation that her father uses for her to study more than play. Good luck to my niece. Break a leg.
The third grading examination for the kids at school was last week. They were told by their parents to study their lesson to cope up with the low scores and grades last examinations. However, they did not study their lessons because they were hooked up with games on the computer. They said that, no need for them to study because they already know the answers. OMG! There were gifted and so talented to know the answers without seeing the questions. Because they do not want to study, I am not forcing them to do it. I just told their parents about it so that their parents will make them study their lessons. But still the kids did not able to study their lessons because when their parents arrive from work, they are sleepy. Too bad, I just wish that they really know the answers. I doubt it but I still hope they will do their best to get good scores and grades.
Because the kids did not study their lessons, their third grading examination results are very low. As expected, their parents did not like it and got angry and blaming the kids but partly it is their fault. If they develop study habit for their kids they would definitely study their lessons by themselves without being told. The kids did not do very well this year compared to last year. I am not saying that they‘ve lost focus and concentrations, just that they give more time in playing than studying. They have one more examination left to give their best. I do hope that will do their hardest this time to get good grades. We are not expecting them to be part of the honor students because their performance is very slow.
The kids will have their first periodical examination at school. But I do not see the pressure in them. Seems like tomorrow is like an ordinary school days for them. They did not study their lessons nor read their notes. Actually, I see myself in them. Because I do not like to study my lessons. It is because no one will help me in studying my lessons. If only my mother were alive, I am sure she will help me in studying my lessons. Anyhow, I did well even if I did not study my lessons. I am not saying I am gifted or intelligent student, just that my memory is good back then. haha!
Since it is their first periodical examination, I told their father (my older brother) to help his daughters in studying their lessons. Especially his eldest who belongs to the first section. I feel the pressure for the eldest niece because the class she belongs is difficult. She has to get good results in the examination for her to get good grades. She belongs to fast learner class so she needs to study her lessons. Also to my other niece, I urge her to study her lessons to get good grades. Hopefully the kids will get good grades tomorrow. Good luck girls..
