Check out my SPM 09 Result Day. It happened on 11 March 2010 and it was a big day for me in my life. Although to some people, SPM is not very important because they think University and Pre-U are more important.
To me, they are all importants. SPM is a part of high school, if you score nicely, you will feel more happy. It’s not that if you don’t score nicely, your life is over, there’s still college, university for you to go on.
I told myself to try my best in it. I wanted to finish my high school happily and also happy after it. Even I don’t get straight As, I still go to college though, only that I get extra money for study, perhaps from the scholarships and grants. =)
Back to the day, my plan went all wrong for that morning. Results were said to be retrieve at 10am, I planned to wake up early, go to school to eat Maggi Mee and breakfast, then spend time taking photos, but I woke up late at 9, prepared everything and go at 945am, and arrived in school at 10am.
The traffic went so smooth, it’s all green light all the way from my house to school. Just in time! =D But I couldn’t go to eat breakfast already, I was so nervous that day, with Chien Chern together walked to the classes, very excited and nervous, yet feeling hungry and hot.
We were late, everyone was there already, but didn’t hear any screaming yet. I saw many Form 5 students sticking their head on the windows to join the fun. Indeed it’s a very happening day. I went to look for my classmate and start waiting.
Every started feeling uncomfortable and got even more excited because of the hot weather and the tick tock of time. It’s 1030am already and the result still haven’t arrived. Everyone was just keep talking and talking and talking. I couldn’t expect how my result will be, I didn’t have the confident, but I hoped it would be good. Something nice.
I’ve received text from friends of other school who had already received their result already, but not us. Damn slow. At around 1045am, an army of prefects walking towards our block with Mr Lye leading the way. It’s here finally!
He gave some instruction to those of where to take the result then we ran to. Ours were on the first floor, need to climb up the stairs again.
I was not the first to take. I see people took it and scream happily. I got even more nervous, I didn’t want to be the first to take, and also didn’t want to be the last. Wait, wait, wait and I took. “WOAH”, sound of weirdness. I was not very thrill, and also not very sad, but got the feeling of unsatisfied. I would say, the result sucks to me. I’ve got C for Chinese, sucks, B+ for Moral Ed, sucks, A- for Biology, sucks. Why Chinese can like that one?!
Nice to see the Form 5 Leo Club friends were there to check us out. Very good.
But from my result, I still got a chance to take a photo with everyone who got 8As and above and be on the paper. That’s fun. I don’t like myself of why always be the one that just got the lowest mark for photo taking, Form 3 that time also same, 7As and 8As can take photos and I’ve got 7As. Lousy me man.
Thank you Yi Jun for help me on the photo. Really good.
Then saw my friend, Jia En, Form 3 classmate, Form 4 Managing Director of YE was interview by the media. He has got 13A+. Really pro and clever.
After hanging around the result taking place, I moved to the canteen to eat my breakfast. I didn’t really enjoy my food, maybe is because of the excitement and nervousness, the hungry feel was gone. Still, I filled my stomach with something then talk talk talk, talk about how suck my result is. Boo.
