    Ever really think life hates you?

    And then many tears were shed. :cry  I don't think I will EVER get over this.

    Life changing event fail, guess I can't be a professional yet :/.

    So ever fail a really important test and get the results back in big bold letters tell you how you failed? Seriously this is supposed to be the Social Works boards they couldn't have been gentler when giving you bad news.

    At least you got into a masters' program and all you have left to do is pass the exam. I tried to get in, but got fucked out of my spot.

    I'd most definitely be emotionally devastated as well, were I to receive such a letter. (Seriously, they could have worded the whole thing better...)

    Sorry, I'm only good for sharing misery, not so much for offering words of encouragement. :( 

    Will there be a chance for you to re-sit the examination though?

    Yeah, don't worry no words of encouragement could do anything for me right now. I can retake the exam, like the letter says, 90 days.

    Yeah I got my degree, but I can't do anything with it unless I get my license. So I have to pass this test or my degree is useless! They ask all this stupid sh*t about things I don't know.

    Sorry, did you want to go for your MSW or another Masters?

    Social work was one of my options, which I probably should have chosen. I have two Batchelors degrees, business and history, and I wanted to be a professor or instructor so I went for history. It was kind of the good ol' boys club in there, so I didn't get in. Could still try for law school but, I've kinda landed back on something else that isn't completely fulfilling but pays the bills, and I lack the heart to try again.

    My bro says law school isn't worth it. He got scholarships and everything and is still paying off loans. I wanted to do law at one point. Have you thought about a MBA?

    End of this month I start on my 2nd Masters, this one in Pol Sci. I wanted to go Macro with my MSW. But I wanted to have the L before I started my new degree. This is the pits!!! :cry  x infinity.

    I really just want to land a job in government, I get to do internships through school. So I hope to get my foot in the door even though I don't know anyone, and of course government jobs is all about who you know. Guess I'll just have to use my good looks to get places ;)  jkjk.

    Hang in there. In time you'll have both and this situation will make you appreciate the journey in retrospect.

    It certainly seems like a cold form letter type of thing. I have to wonder though, did they at least tell you what you got wrong so you could brush up, if not exactly what questions you got wrong, but at least what areas you need to study harder for? I can't stand it when someone says you've made a mistake, but then doesn't let you know where the mistake lies so you can try to better yourself and your knowledge of the subject.

    Yeah there was a breakdown of it on the bottom of the letter, doesn't do much.

    I missed my first promotion by 0.46 points.

    Happy ending to the story, an achievement medal worth 1 point hadn't shown up in my records yet :p  I got an out-of-cycle promotion when it came in.

    Meh, I am going to write a letter to the National boards to advocate for my case. The wording to EVERY single question was subjective. I couldn't decide how to answer the questions when there is no clear question actually presented. It was a freaking joke, hope my story can have a happy ending too.

    Thanks, I was almost there, almost!

    The thing is, that's what everyone told me about this time. That I can do it. I couldn't. So how am I supposed to believe I can do it if I try again? That's the problem I am having right now, is I gave it everything I had this time. I mean everything.

    I failed one of my regents exams when I was in high school, but besides that I never failed an important exam. I don't know how to deal or cope with this.

    1 fucking question? That is some serious bullshit. I mean seriously, FUCK that.

    Can you contest the mark? Might be worthwhile if you're that close to passing. Other than that, all you can do is try again. Just think how little you'll have to improve to pass next time, though.
