Exam Result Blues

Actually hari ni plan nak tulis pasal Italy and Italiano. Tapi, pagi2 tadi kat news ada cerita ada sorang budak Melayu pompuan dapat 17A from her SPM. Break record sebagai pelajar Melayu pertama dapat 17A. Last year there was a Chinese girl who scored 16A. Sekarang ni berlumba-lumba semua pelajar ni untuk score A in their exam.

What make me so scared is that my eldest daughter is also waiting for SPM result. Being in a kampung school with lots of limitations,(the school did not even have Physics teacher for more than 3 months last year!!!!), I am not that confident that she will do very well. We did our best by sending her to tuition clasess, motivational classes or any program that could be useful for her. We gave her all the encouragement any parents would give. We didn't even pressure her to stressful limit.

Last year was exam year for me. Three of my girls were sitting for exams. The eldest, SPM, the second PMR and the third UPSR. The good thing was we did not have to take them for holidays much to chagrin of the youngest, due to their busy schedule throughout the year.

Alhamdullilah, my third daughter got 5A in her UPSR. She was hoping to get into full residential school. Most of her friends received offers to MRSM, Sekolah Menengah Sains etc, but she only receives an offer to Sekolah Menengah Agama (SMKA). We don't mind her being there at all because this scholl is one of the best in Penang and by standard for SMKA one of the best in Malaysia. It is not full residential school, there is hostel facilities but she did not get it, she is very disappointed for not getting. We tried to console her by telling herall the "horror" stories of living on hostels since both me and hubby were staying in hostels during our schooling days. So, in the morning my hubby will have to send her to school and she will take a bus home.

My second daughter sprang quite a pleasant suprise to us with her result. This young lady, is always at the hockey field. Her English was so poor, she could not understand a single word that I speak to her in English. Not even a simple word. At the last minutes (3 weeks before exam) I tutored 6 hockey team girls (my daughter inclusive). They became part of my family, sleep, eat and learn English. All 6 got B for English, which was an improvement from D or below.
We actually did not have any good expectation for my second daughter in her PMR result, so it was really a nice suprice when she told us she got 6A & 2B. Alhamdullillah. Even my siblings when they knew of her result remarked " Pandai jugak hang no?"
But now the pressure is on her to get better result for he SPM next year.
She is still playing hockey, nothing will stop her not even after receiving stichess under one of her eyebrows. Or my threat that she will be so tan no boy will look at her. To that she grimaced that I need to buy her skin whitening lotion/cream. Girls will always be girls !!!!

Now, the time has come for me and my hubby to loose sleep over my eldest daughter's SPM result. I am praying hard but.... I really do not know..
I am praying for the best but I am hoping for a nice suprise like her younger sister gave us.

Please pray with me.

Kak oi...chek mmg org kedah. Born in Penaga, IC pun no. penang...

kak..saya dulu mmg pelajar yang sangap...masa periksa penilai, (kira upsr la...dulu penilaian darjah lima) dpt 1A, 3B dan 1C. SRP, dpt 22, saya mgm lemah matematik, dapat 8 cukup-cukup makan jer, SPM pangkat 2 tapi dah BM dpt 7, math lagilah lingkup, hancur..

Amik BM Julai paper, boleh pulak dpt 3. Orang dah masuk upper six, saya pun hentam masuk upper six, tanpa masuk lower six. Kesedaran belejar dtg lambat kepada saya, saya hanya sedar bahawa belajar ini seronok bila tingkatan 6. Baru saya pulun, study sungguh-sungguh, siang malam. Mak bapak pun heran.

Akhirnya saya dapat 5P dlm STP, satu sekolah bergegar, budak palign sangap dan budak tak masuk lower six dpt 5P.

Akhirnya saya dapat masuk U dan kini berjaya jugaklah, kira tidaklah sampai hajat cikgu yang menyumpah saya akan kerja kilang belakang sekolah dulu.

Semoga ur eldest dpt yg terbaik.. InsyaAllah doa ibu bapa itu..akan termakbul..

atenah said...

wah ramainya anak dara aunty, best nya...InsyaAllah may she gets good results. But this 17A girl ni pun ada tak betulnya, not all kids are born smart. but not all not-smart kids cant have a career. this SPM is end-all cukup i tak setuju. My SPM dolu pun bukannya bagus sangat but i think i still contibute to our society

Kat Mesia, peperiksaan paling penting ialah SPM. Kalau tak cuba yg terbaik memang agak berliku kehidupan. STPM susah dia lain sikit dan peluang agak terhad lebih-lebih lagi kalau ambil Art Stream.

Dari segi masa juga katakan masuk UTM dgn SPM boleh buat Ijazah terus then graduate cepat. Masuk pasaran kerja cepat etc.

PNUT kisah hidup hang menarik. Cam boleh buat blog lain kat sini heheheh ...*gurau * cik kak.

AuntyN said...

Pnut orang Penaga? So mungkin kenai arwah Dato Haji Kadir lah? Tu hubby's uncle tu. Bila balik nanti mai lah lepak dgn aunty pulak, OK? Thanks for the kind words. They are very encouraging

AuntyN said...

Tenah oi, anak aunty semua anak kedera belaka la. Takk dak anak jantan pun. Kena tunggu menantu jantan yang soleh lah nanti.
Nak buat camna kalau tak setuju pun dah sistem kita camtu. Kalau super rich boleh lah aunty hantaq anak2 pi belajaq oberseas. La ni dok harap nak bagi masuk IPTA kut mana yang boleh saja lah.

AuntyN said...

Bat, harap2 cam tu lah. Bukan takut pasai nak compete dgn yg pandai2. Cuma takut dia nanti merendah diri, dok compare dgn kawan2 dia yg lebih terer je. Insyaallah.

atiza said...

Insya Allah okay Aunty..Berkat doa ibu bapa..

AuntyN said...

Azhan :Ni kali kedua Azhan tinggalkan komen. Thank you. Aunty dok cari your blog, tapi tak jumpa. Rasa pernah sekali visit blog tu, apa hal dah tutup ke atau sembunyi? Memang betul lah apa Azhan kata, I have been telling my daughters the same thing.

Atiz: Thanks a lot. Mama can only pray, the rest is up to them.

Lollies said...

I wonder how my parents felt when I told them I got second grade. My father said..it's okay. Then when I got home..I showed my actual result. Ha! Ha! Soma kena tipu. Thank God my dad tak ada heart attack..

Anak Dagang said...

Selamat berjaya diucapkan buat anak Aunty N!> Kalau dapat result bagus bagi tau dia kalau dapat datang ke Nashville buat Engineering, nanti saya belanja anak AuntyN makan hehehe..

Kak Teh said...

auntyN, everytime budak2 tunggu result, kita yang sakit perut. Insyaallah, we'll hear more good news from you. Am also waiting for my niece's results. I bet her mum dah demam tak kebah!
I remember my daughter calling me abt her results. And i said: any A's (typical Malaysian mum!) and she said...wait, i am counting..laaa banyak pulak for someone yang tak study!

AuntyN said...

Lollies : I am hoping for that type of suprise as well.

Om : Banyak lah ko nak belanjo anok daro den makan. Buek den sakit jantung kut.hehehe. Insyaallah Om, I don't think her result will be good enough to go overseas pun.

MA said...

Kak N : results SPM bukan the blueprint for life. I ni pun academic results mediocre jer but rasanya I still can succeed in life.

Insya Allah, anak Kak N boleh berjaya dalam hidup regardless of the alphabets in her results slips.

shidah said...

Dulu-dulu masa DeLiNn nak amik result SPM/SRP..kita ni berdebar-debar nak ambik result.. sekali mak kat umah dah tahu resultnye. Dia suka main calling-calling skolah. Ish.. tak best betoi. Tapi dia buat-buat surprise..:D

Ewok said...

Aunty, Awat budak2 Penang ni suka main hoki sangat? Dulu saya ada 6 org cousins pompuan semua gila main hoki kat jelutong sana tu.

InsyaAllah lah result dia tu. Kalau dia nak gi oversea jugak, suruh ambik Medic kat Al-azhar. Tuition fees semua free becoz alumni asso so strong they cover that up. Just need money for lodging and makan minum saja. Tu pun Aci saya yg cerita lah sebab dia plan nak hantaq anak dia pi sana.
