Module 2 Exam

Whew!!! Mod 2 Exam is done and over with - Thank Goodness!!! I am taking a state run EMT course so the tests that we take are written by the state not by our instructor. Our instructor told us at the beginning of this course that Mod 2 and Mod 7 were rough tests. Boy - he wasn't kidding about Mod 2!

Mod 2 Exam was a very poorly written test. Even our instructor said so. I left the exam feeling like I'd be happy just to pass. Passing is 70%. Any grade between 60% and 69% and you have to retest. Anything below 60% and you're thrown out of the class and can't retest. You can only retest two times (two different tests - not the same one) during the course.

I went to class on Thursday eagerly anticipating my grade. The instructor had told us that he would call us at home if we failed. I hadn't gotten a call so I knew I had at least passed - that's all I wanted. So at the beginning of class the instructor called us each up individually and gave us our grades. I got an 88%!!!! I got the second highest grade in the class!! I was soooooo happy with my grade!!!!

So - now on to Module 3!!! There are seven mods all together. Once I pass Mod 3 I can start riding the ambulance to get my 5 ride alongs that I need to pass this course! I can't wait to start riding the ambulance!

Ok - on to Mod 3! That exam is on October 9th!!! Bring it on!!!
