My name is Xxx Yyy (PYx) and I was looking over my exam today and realized I had not penciled in 4 questions 28-31 on the exam, and therefore was not granted credit, even though my circled responses were on the actual exam.

3 out of the 4 of them I would have gotten correctly have i had darkened them in on the scantron. i guess my point in emailing you was to bring forth to your attention that there could be more attention focused on the grading side,


since errors like these do occur on side of students, and they could be neutralized by exam-graders. i feel that i have submitted to you, if not in full manner, still adequate answers that should have been noticed, since they

were clearly missing on the scantron sheet as well as the summary grade sheet.

I appreciate quick grading and prompt return of exams, but I would like to ask you if more thorough grading could be implemented in the future. Thanks for your time

Personal Tips

Commit to making daily deposits, rather than withdrawals, in your professional bank account.

I realize what an important opportunity pharmacy school is for me.

I realize it is impossible to cram for exams and perform well in pharmacy school.

I realize it is impossible to miss sleep and perform well in pharmacy school.

I realize it is impossible to eat poorly and perform well in pharmacy school.

Therefore, I vow to:

Study every day.

Eliminate distractions.

Eat healthy meals.

Exercise regularly.

Maintain a healthy sleep schedule.

Do all these things, especially during block exams.

I will remember and uphold these vows.
