It's all fun until it's your time to compete. Then you're just afraid you're going to mess up.I actually kind of feel the same way. There is a lot of stress building up to the competition, but the competition is so much fun, I almost forget about all the stress.
You can in building events.You can mess up?
I won't doubt that! We have about 25-40 of B and C each per region, I believe, and 6 regions.OMG,in NY we have sooo many teams per region!
definitely. If a test is too hard your brain can explode and you forget stuff that you learned in elementary school. Happened to me in bio. We had a test on cell respiration and it was really hard and long and so I was going though it and crying in my head and then i got to the lab part and the section itself was really easy but i could not do any of it because taking the test before it made me forget everything that i ever knew about cell respiration. It was talking about random fishies and plants and asking "Does the fishy produce CO2?" and that's a simple and obvious question that everyone should get right even without learning about cell respiration but a lot of people got that part wrong because they were so overwhelmed by the test. Most people didnt know what cell respiration was by the end of the test. Huge sigh of relief when i got the test back though - 88. not good, but not bad for an impossible test.You can mess up?
You most certainly can. That reminds me of Disease Detectives 2 years ago. I didnt really know much, because I had picked up the event about 2 weeks before regionals, and I was studying for my other events. My partner knew the stuff, so I wrote and he told me what to write. We got to a math problem and he said "Just put it into a proportion" and I said "...what's a proportion?"You can mess up?
