Exam week

This week, Caitlin is taking her school exams. She's been cool about it. I guess it's because you don't fear what you've not yet experienced. She seems to be a 'last-minute' kind of student, revising only the morning of the exam itself, during breakfast....and no, no jitters even at that moment. The only 'worry' she voiced on the first morning of her exam was "What if I get below 90?". She's not worried because she won't get an A, but more because 'below 90' translates into not getting the reward of one storybook that I promised her for each subject she scores 90 and above.

Compared to the English language, her Bahasa Malaysia is not as good so subjects taught in that language tend to suffer a little more I would expect. Yesterday, she took her English and Kesihatan (Hygiene) exams. She rated English as "super fine" while Kesihatan got a "hard". And she said she forgot what "head" is called in Bahasa when she had to label parts of the body in the Kesihatan paper. So she said she wrote "h-e-a-d"! Her kung kung said to give her credit for coming up with that idea...

Here are some pics of what she has been doing a lot more this week instead of revising for the exams....

Haha. Mine was doing pretty much the same thing as yours plus she was sick for 2 weeks before the exam plus the exam week so no studying. I think she was happy to be sick!
