I got the grades from the class and my final last night (I might have been able to get them a week ago, but I didn't send him email asking for them until this weekend; I won't get the official grades until sometime in September, not sure where they'll actually mail them).

Did approximately what I expected, which is decent, but not great:

Kanji: 96% (a little disappointing, made some dumb mistakes, was really shooting for 100% here)
Reading: 95% (reasonably happy here)
Grammar: 88% (would have liked to have done better, but about what I expected under the circumstances)
Composition: 80% (eh)
Interview: 76% (better than I expected or thought I deserved, honestly)
Listening: 51% (much better than I expected -- inflated heavily by multiple choice options here)

Overall, 86.6% on the final (grammar and kanji worth 100 and 80 points, everything else 20)

Overall, 84.6% (B) on the class. I faded an awful lot at the end; made up a slight bit of ground on the final.

I'm still worried about next semester, but I'm putting in two or three hours a day studying right now. Doesn't really feel like it will end up being enough.
In the mood: blahblah

Compared how you muttered after the tests it looks pretty good overall :) Okay I see you want 100% but well... take it positive, you can now go better next time ^^.

Eh, I don't believe in being positive.

Besides, if I only manage to get a B when I'm ahead of the curve (which I was when I started), what's going to happen when I get behind it, like I am now?

You're going to work harder, of course.

Unlike a certain catlord, you enjoy pushing yourself (see your bike or hiking posts) and do very well when you do so.

So don't panic, you're going to do well.

(Um, who am I and what did I do with Kyaa?)

Your writing (composition) is more than excellent!
You showed us your writings (essay assignments) last Wednesday and I was really impressed by them, especially the last one. There is no grammatical mistake or kanji mistake! Also your handwriting is neat and easy to read. It is certainly better than the writing of many Japanese!
