This was the last day before the start of PMR. The subject on the first day of PMR would be Malay and I was very busy studying for it. On that night, I was very worried of Malay as I was not 100% prepared. I could only hope for the best.
5 October 2010:
This was the first day of PMR. The subjects were Malay Paper 1 and Paper 2. After finishing Malay Paper 1, I was quite worried as it was very difficult. I predicted that I would get 28/40. Later, I sat for
Malay Paper 2. It was not too difficult. I estimated that I had 99% chance of getting A for Malay. On that afternoon, the subject was Pendidikan Islam and I did not take this subject. After returning home, I studied for English and Geography.
6 October 2010:
This was the second day of PMR. The subjects were English Paper 1, Paper 2 and Geography. Both English Paper 1 and Paper 2 were moderately easy. I was very confident of getting A. Geography was the subject on that afternoon. It was very easy and was much easier compared to the school exams and the PMR trial exam. I was very sure of getting A. After I went home, I studied for Science and History.
7 October 2010:
This was the third day of PMR. The subjects were Science Paper 1, Paper 2 and History. Science Paper 1 was very easy, but Paper 2 was quite difficult. Still, I was confident of getting A. History was the subject on that afternoon. It was very easy and was much easier compared to the school exams and the PMR trial exam. I was very sure of getting A. After that, I had 3 days of break. I slept on that afternoon and started studying on that night.
8, 9 and 10 October 2010:
I had no exam during these 3 days. There were only 3 subjects remaining, which were Mathematics, Chinese and Living Skills. I spent most of the time studying Chinese and Living Skills. My grandfather also taught me some Mathematics. The only subject I was worried of was Chinese, since I was good at Mathematics and Living Skills.
11 October 2010:
This was the second last day of PMR. The subjects were Mathematics Paper 1, Paper 2 and Living Skills. Both Mathematics Paper 1 and 2 were easy, while Living Skills was moderately easy. I was sure of getting A in these 2 subjects. After that, the Malay students could enjoy themselves since they had no more exams, while I still had to study for Chinese which would be on the next day. I was quite worried of Chinese.
12 October 2010:
This was the last day of PMR. The subjects were Chinese/Tamil Paper 1 and Paper 2. Only the Chinese and Indian students went to school. Chinese Paper 2 started first. It was quite difficult which made me feel quite worried. Luckily, Chinese Paper 1 was quite easy. I estimated that I could get 39/40 for Chinese Paper 1 and that my chance of getting A for Chinese was 99%. After that, I had lunch with my grandparents in OldTown WhiteCoffee. I enjoyed myself for the whole day, and for the rest of the days until I began Form 4 on 2 January 2011.
This is the ranking of the PMR subjects from the hardest to the easiest:
1. Bahasa Melayu Paper 1
2. Bahasa Cina Paper 2
3. Science Paper 2
4. Bahasa Melayu Paper 2
5. English Paper 2
6. English Paper 1
7. Bahasa Cina Paper 1
8. Mathematics Paper 2
9. Kemahiran Hidup Bersepadu (Kemahiran Teknikal)
10. Science Paper 1
11. Mathematics Paper 1
The PMR results was originally planned to be released on 28 December 2010. I estimated that I had 98% chance of getting 8A. I really hoped that I would get 8A in PMR. Later, it was announced that the PMR results would be released on 23 December 2010 instead of 28 December 2010. This made me feel more worried.
On 23 December 2010, I was so happy to see all A's on my PMR results slip. I successfully got 8A for PMR, which had been my target since Form 1. My next target would be getting 11A in SPM.
