I struggled to get through standardized testing when I was a kid. I would always pass every portion with flying colors, except for math. I couldn't get the hang of it. I ended up retaking multiple math courses in school as well as college. It's just not my thing. The pressure of taking a strict standardized test did not help me at all, either. I just wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible, especially when I watched other students finish it with ease. I was embarrassed to be the last person to turn my test in...and then, of course, I always failed.

It sucked.
