In any case, nothing would alleviate the sneezing, runny noise and sinus pressure. Studying was very difficult.
I slept the usual, on and off, due to hot flashes.
Got up at 6 and the noise was still not good. What choice did I have, none, it is what it is. Quickly reviewed LEED CI materials, took a practice test, showered and took another practice test. Anxiety was not lessening. Got to the test location, went over the short notes and said to my self “that’s it, I know what I know” and went inside.
As I signed in I was told I could not take my clean handkerchief in, nothing could be brought in, except the foam ear plugs. I took them, maybe I’d need them for my noise. Worst case scenario would be I’d use my sweater and skirt.
I started to take the test and although I knew I knew a lot of the material I was nervous and the questions were very foreign. I had grown accustomed to the practice tests.
I went through, marking some, skipping others. Got through it all and started going through the marked questions, then I remembered to go through the incomplete ones. For some reason I thought I had marked all the ones to go back to, but I had not. As I went through some got unmarked and some remained marked. Marking was an easy way to go back to them. Finally I got to a point where none were marked and then I reviewed all of them. This was good. During this review I my nerves where calming down. I was becoming familiar with the questions. I changed some answers. With 4 minutes of the 2 hours remaining it was time to end the test. I wanted to review again, but no time, so I hit the end button. Then of course you’re asked if you want to end the test. Okay, end the test. The computer then takes what seems like minutes, but is really seconds, and up pops up your score.
I had to fight back the tears. Pass or fail I know I would have been fighting back tears.
Gratefully, I will not have to go through this test again!
