In Chapter 32 of Anne of Green Gables, Anne and her classmates go to take the dreaded Entrance exams for Queen's College. Anne tries to stick to Miss Stacy's good advice to not cram and to spend her time in between exams walking and sleeping. Afterwards, the wait for results is excruciating. Will Anne make top of the list? Will she beat Gilbert? And will Moody Spurgeon fail History and have to become a carpenter after all?
Listen to the chapter and then stick around for reflections with my friend Katie Russo, who talks about her own experience graduating valedictorian from her high school. We also discuss test anxiety, meeting deadlines and finding identity in being a good student.
