Let’s face it, everyone has questions that they are embarrassed to ask. Or you believe that you are alone in dealing with a situation. This is not true. Fickle Firsties is are the questions that you want to ask but aren’t sure how to.
What happens if I fail all my classes? Will I be a firstie forever?
Getting all T’s
Dear Getting all T’s,
The first thing you have to realize is it’s almost impossible to get a “T”. Getting a “T” grade literally means you are as dumb as a troll (which means you either a. NOTHING right on the exam–including your own name OR b. Plagiarised on your test) and probably won’t be allowed to continue through. And I have yet to see any of the first years this year who fall into this category.
There is another reason for a person to get an exam, and I had to go to our dear editor to get this clarified because I was a bit fuzzy on it. BUT, here we go.
You could deliberately get a “T” on an exam as a form of protest however this will likely backfire. Why? Because you would be sent to your Head of House to try to sort out what was going on with you. Then, depending on the situation, you’d possibly be able to retake your exams after the problem was confronted.
Keep your head up. Keep practicing. And know that you won’t be a firstie forever.
