Just when you thought you had 'em licked, they show up on exams and bite you on the butt. Maybe it's just me. Maybe it's because exams and I just don't get on. Let me give you an example. The first linguistics exam of the term (they are all multiple choice questions), I found a particular 9-question problem too easy (this professor likes trickery, I didn't think he would let it be this easy), and horror of horrors changed all my answers to that problem. Needless to say, that is clearly Stupid Mistake #1 in the "Top 10 Stupid Exam Mistakes." You'd think I'd have learned this lesson in bloody high school.
Even more stupidly (if that is indeed an adverb), I noticed some of the questions from exams 1 & 2 showed up on the final exam, and a couple of the ones I had right on the other exams I marked incorrectly on the final! What's the matter with me?? Am I out to prove even more how much I am my own worst enemy???
