It's Just a Test

For our high school juniors who took the PSAT on Wednesday, October 16th, you were administered Form W. For those that aren't juniors or didn't take Form W of the PSAT, you are left out of an (apparently very funny) inside joke.

This brings me to your daily reminder that exams are made by people just like you and I. No, they're not there to make your life miserable, they are doing their jobs. College Board makes exams, but those exams are written by people, not some flesh eating zombies that want to make your brain into a mushy smoothie before they drink it.

In fact, let's go back to one of the posts we reblogged on our tumblr a few months back:

So while you may sometimes feel like an exam is going to ruin your life and you have to obsess endlessly over it, here's your daily reminder that you shouldn't. Any exams you take are written by another person who drinks coffee in the morning, has to go to work, think about what they're going to eat later and go home to sleep.

Don't ever feel like you have to come up with crazy schemes to be able to do better in your exams.
Please don't
P.S. When you take the PSAT or SAT, yes, you have to write a pledge in cursive. I don't know why nobody ever tells us this until we have the pencil in our hands.

So breakout the cursive alphabet you learned when you were (how old were we?) 10 before you take those exams. 

Here's some adorable red pandas if you still feel stressed over standardized college entrance exams:
