"So, you should know what we are going to be examining you on, and the same comments that I made before: I want to give you feedback, let you know how you're doing, whether your study methods are effective or not.

It's not an attempt to retest your admission to MIT, or anything like that. If you do your work, you should do very well. And if you have not done your work, you shouldn't do very well, and we'll be able to tell you so.

So, just what we said in the past. Please take the time to read the whole exam, do the easy questions for you; the ones that you find easiest, do those first. But let's be honest, this isn't high school anymore..."

He missed oct, and instead jumped from pent, hex, hept,--> non. Then stated "oh, you forgot your latin?" Also, there is a recurring joke amongst the faculty about the admission process. Almost all of the teachers seem to laugh at how difficult it is to get into MIT.
