I was so stressed, had to pass one conditional exam (when you fail an exam twice you can take a conditional, which means you move on normally but must pass this exam in the next year/semester or you're out of the uni) which was damn hard. Even the prof said this subject has no place at the third year because the material is huge, there are no textbooks for it and it's better suited for people going for a PhD. I've failed this exam for a total of three times so this was my last chance to do it or 3 years of uni would go out the window.
Anyway, this time I hit the questions I could actually answer (institutions, Davis-Moore functional theory of stratification, research on nomenklatura and elites in Poland, Hungary and Russia in 1988 and 1993) and thought I did ok. After we turned in our exams (had to write at least 3 pages for at least 2 out of 3 questions) the prof invited us to his office to hand us the results. He referred to my work as "the best" and "standing out", I got 3= (3 with two minuses, the lowest score you can pass with)... A prick move on his side as some girls started crying at that point (there were quite a few people tackling this exam for the fourth time like me, only 2 passed).
God, it was such a stressful day. I'm glad it's over and I can move on with my education. It's the first time in my life I had so many problems with any exam (the only exam I had to repeat). Now it's time to get wasted!
