Bio and beakers

So many colourful pretty :-)

Well, today was the day that my AS Bio students took their practical exam. For me, this involved a year of stressing about what they might ask in order to prep them adequately (there is no "set in stone" syllabus for the practical aspects of the course so you have to cover a wide variety of practical elements); five hours of making solutions, labelling beakers and testing microscopes yesterday; and a day spent mostly standing from 07:30 to 15:15 today.

BUT I pulled it off (Yay me!) AND the majority of them managed to finish within the required time span (Yay them!) SO now I just hope for the best for them.

Tomorrow is all about cleaning up the lab at work and tutoring any stragglers for their theory exam which is coming up. On that note, I cannot believe that the year is almost over. Total mind freak.

Now, I'll leave you with this thought:

"If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate."

Indeed :-)
