Every time we have a new project, we have to pass the test to be able to score the project. It is nerve wracking! No matter how many times you do it, you just want to get it right the first time. And, even if there are no consequences, there still is a matter of pride! Perhaps it is something unique to academics, we have spent most of our informative years in some type of learning establishment where we are tested on a regular basis. Anyway, you might think that we “love to be tested” but that is not true for all of us. I for one, never really like taking tests. I would rather “learn by doing.”
But I must say, it is a relief to get the qual set out of the way. Now, all we have to do is hope the project lasts long enough for us to make some gains financially. We shall see!
