Yesterday was SPM day. I got a sister who got her results yesterday, and a brother who also got his STAM (Sijil Tinggi Agama Malaysia) yesterday too. And they both passed with flying colours..hurray! Eh alhamdulillah la patutnya..haha.
Anyway I remember mine which was around 10 years ago. I remember expecting to fail Add Math since I really sucked at Add Math and I usually don't have the motivation to even make myself understand all those equation. Did you know that before SPM I have never even passed my Add Math exam? Haha..that was how bad is it. My mother taught at the same school as mine but she did not teach me (she did teach my class once for 2 months when I was in Form 4 though!). I got SAP (which equals to flunk) for all my Form 4 exam. During Form 5 I took extra subject which was Perdagangan to avoid that SAP thing and I studied that subject by myself, no tuition whatsoever. Kehkeh.
My favourite subject? English and History of course. I got confused a lot when I learned Science which was why I avoid from going into Science stream at all cost. I also ponteng a lot on the days leading to SPM just because I want to study at home. Haha. In fact a few times I came to school, and then I went back through the back gate at 9am, and this is all done while my mom was at school of course. And I did inform her everytime I want to cabut. Kehkeh.
On SPM day I was a wreck. I cannot imagine how my mother would react, relatives and teachers and friends. But I got over my wreck as soon as I saw my results. Whoopee! I even passed my Add Math though it's not exactly A1, but I was so grateful that I screamed at my Add Math teacher "Teacher, I passed my Add Math!" and then hugged her. The icing on the cake was hearing my father speaking proudly on the phone to some relatives of mine (I was pretending to be asleep! Haha) about my SPM results. And to hear my father praise because of good exam results are so very rare! Haha.
I guess, SPM day was indeed a day to remember. But then I think if you don't do so well, it's not the end of the world either!
ps: i've already filled my car tanks yesterday and the pakistani man at the petrol station helped me! i even confessed to him "boleh tolong isi kan minyak tak? saya tak pandaila sebab tak pernah buat.." haha.
