I just got my results for my S.T.A.A.R. test. Not my third grade one, my fouth grade one. The reason I took this test was because I knew most of fourth grade math than other students. When I heard the results, I was shocked,upset, and was crying a lot. I didn’t pass the test. The reason I think I didn’t pass was because I didn’t study enough. I was just being lazy and did just tried to do everything quickly. I think I could have done better only if I had studied more. I think the test was challenging at the same time a tiny bit easy. This test was the most challenging test I ever took. Only if I had studied harder then I would have been able to pass. I think that it was nice to try out for the test because only 7 kids got to take it from the entire third grade. I feel really lucky to be someone good in math and who is able to take something big and challenging with a few other kids who are like me. I never knew that I was going to get something like this one day but now I know. It turns out that because I go to Kumon, I was able to take this test. Going to Kumon let me get into D.I. and also in G.A.T.E.S. Most kids who have gotten into G.A.T.E.S. or have got a chance to do this test. I feel that G.A.T.E.S. and this test were meant for me to take and join. I love doing math because of the fascinating ways you can come up to an answer and also that each way you come up to an answer has bits of things that you know and don’t know. For me, this feels like a puzzle that challenges your mind to see what it knows. I love 😍 puzzles because it make me think more and like I never did before🤔. Anyway, I really think I could have done more studying🤔 for this test instead of playing and watching T.V. I hope that I can do better in fourth grade than on the test and also than in third grade. I hope I am able to pass it for fifth grade next year!!! Okay, so as itv turns out, I actually did pas!!! Yahoooo!!! I am the only girl and have 5 other boys doing the test as well!
