Lost My Mind

So said one student, as he exited the exam. Sweaty and distressed. Had been a superb student during the term. One of the highest marks on the mid-term exam. Complicated assignment that he had contributed to as the leader of his group. Regular visits to get it just right, demonstrating a particular depth of thought and concern. Regular attendance and participation in class; knew the material cold.

Somehow, on the final, everything just froze. Found it difficult to believe, when reading his final exam, how accurate his description had been. Very little there.

Saw through the chaos. Gave him an A.
