Well I just have a small dilema and I'd like to have some input..it's coming down to me finishing high school this year..I got my MME scores back and did exceptional in all areas except math which would be 5 poins short....I'm a bit pissed..I mean I have gotten b/a's in math since day 1 for high school...and I'm feeling a bit pressured..the school keeps trying to fill our heads with this insane idea that if you dont have omg awesome results your doomed financially for the rest of your life...the thing is just the other day I got a letter from the gov saying I should retake the test in which i dont want to..I've been dealing with grades my whole life and I feel I shouldnt have to prove myself and also those tests are for huge colleges not standard community ones..I only plan to go to one of those so here's where I'm stuck:

1.)Should I retake the test to get FIVE points? (I feel hugely pressured to do this)
2.)Should I have faith in just not taking it (Everyone has been telling me that those tests meant nothing because they are in college with bad scores plus my act told me that i can go to gvsu which is a pretty big college..)
3.)Am I worrying for absolutley nothing? (I really dont give a **** if china is doing better than us..that doesnt really affect my life very much..at least what and how I choose to do something)

this is serious guys..this is important advice and I need some kind of serious advice..my majors are going to be in small business and music..

Course you should retake - because for 5 points and you're getting b/a's then its a dead cert you'll get it

u must be a complete retard to be given a chance to succeed and consider not taking it, its not about whether our not you need it now, if you change your mind later and you dont have a b in math? seriously no one will take you, do it. for your own sake.
prove yourself? seriously? of course you have to prove yourself! thats what this is all about you have to prove you can do maths.

your missing the point..from what I've been finding out I dont even need to waste this effort..BIG COLLEGES ONLY means something..i dont care about msu or whatever else they have in michigan..but another thing im concerned about is whether or not I will do worse on the test..and how that will affect me...I think i'll have a sit down with a counseler a school


edit:sometimes i wonder what employer in their right mind would choose my test score over my entire high school transript..im planning on running my own business some day (which is what this whole thing is been about) but i do see what the point of taking the test would be...plus i am allowed to study and I believe I will only have to retake the math portion...hm
