Hi all, I am new here, so i am not sure if this is the right forum to post. If not, then feel free for any of the moderators to move it someplace else. Like the title itself suggests, up to this point i have always had decent scores in my math tests >90. However, in my second test in General Topology, i scored roughly ~80. This might sound silly, but i was very pissed off. I am making myself sound like all i care is a good score in the test, which is far away from the truth. The truth is i love math for it own sake, and i know that the ultimate goal is not to perform well in tests (this does not hurt at all by all means) but rather to develop a solid understanding of the subject matter (which in this case i feel like i have a pretty good grasp of it). However, while this poor performance has motivated me even more to study math, i cannot seem to fully free myself from the idea that i have pretty much failed the test. How do you guys cope with such situations? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
