Can I just express my disappointment? I just learned that I failed only one exam in the proficiency tests in MS Finance. /*Trivia: To get in the program, one would need to submit complete documents, pass the Graduate Program Admission Test or GPAT, get through the interview (for some), and pass the proficiency tests in Accounting, Algebra, Calculus, Statistics, and Mathematics of Finance*/ I failed the Accounting part. 😦
It’s quite acceptable though as I never took Accounting lessons in college. Not even as an elective. 😦 However, I have a few knowledge on the subject due to my role in my previous job, which involves analysis of financial statements. But that was not enough to let me pass the exam. And what’s more depressing is the fact that I was 3 correct items short from passing the test. Three friggin’ items! How unlucky.
On the brighter side though, there is a re-take next month. And I would only need to take Accounting this time. Plus, UP College of Business Administration offers review sessions before the re-take. I would just need to pay for the “workshop” for P4000, which by the way is the reason why I’m here in Diliman instead of being in the office. And then, I’ll just show up in the review classes, which have 10 3-hour sessions, and most of which fell on weeknights. Oh yeah! Imagine the adventure I’ll be having in my MRT trips, and bus and jeepney queues. And those are after I become drained from daily office work. Yay!
Three friggin’ items!
But seriously, I’m glad I passed the other four. I just saved meself P4000, and the additional effort in preparing for the re-exam. Thank you, God! 🙂
By the way, from now on I’d be seeing more of this…
