Alrighty then.... I missed 38 of the second 100. But let me tell you ... I would have greatly preferred the peace and tranquility of the true exam environment over the BS distractions that I had to endure this morning.
Anyway, that gives me a raw 132 for the 200 questions. I know that's considered average for the questions on the Bar Exam, but I didn't expect to miss that many.
It's tough to stay on a level emotional plane during these days leading up to the exam. I want to tell myself that I'm doing well enough in my preparation and that it will all come together at the right time. All of the subjects are familiar enough by now that subconsciously, and consciously for that matter, I feel like I should be able to pass this thing. Then I run into a particularly nasty question or set of MBEs and the little seed of panic jumps to life and starts to grow in the pit of my stomach. Do I really have a handle on this stuff? Have I practiced enough to perform well on the exam? Are there enough hours left in the days before July 24th to absorb all of the trivia that I need to remember? Will I ever get there?
