I chose to press the success key because if you want to get into good colleges, sometimes high schools look back on OAA to determine if you are smart enough to go to school there. That is what motivates me to give 110% and try the best I can on tests. What ever you get on these tests will follow you for the rest of your life. It can determine if you go to a good college, if you get a good job, if you will make enough money to pay bills and such.
I do good on these test by strategies that my teacher, Mr.McGuire, taught me such as going back in the passage and finding answers. If you don’t look back in the passage and check over your work after you are done, you don’t get a good grade… simple as that.
Those two boys don’t care and aren’t thinking ahead of what this test will mean. If they think they can get done in an hour and not check their work, they are just doing themselves harm and will not be the best that they could be. If they goof off on this one test, it makes it easier to goof off on the next test, and the next one and the one after that, until it becomes something important. Then these boys will find themselves unable to pass high school. If they fail that, they stay in high school while every one else goes ahead in life. Usually, these are the kids that drop out of high school and say that they are being home-schooled, when really, they have gotten so far behind in their school work, and they can’t catch up. These people are usually the ones that have to do things that they really don’t want to do in order to get by in life, like stealing or drugs.
