A Proud Moment

My teeth chattered with excitement. I was just about to get back our math tests from my math teacher.

Being a person that enjoyed solving math questions, I aimed to get full marks when I was doing my paper. My math teacher called out our names and told the class our marks if we scored more than 35 marks (The total marks in the test was 40). My palms turned clammy as the teacher continued to read out the names.

“Alex Cheong, 40 marks!” I proudly stood up and took back my paper as the class cheered. My efforts had finally born “fruit”! At that point in time, I could remember how I checked my paper for careless mistakes…

I felt ecstatic and thought of how pleased my parents would be when they saw my paper.

I thought I shouldn’t be proud; if I want to do well in the future, I have to practise my math even more. Thinking about it, it also applied to other subjects. If I want to excel in something, I have to work hard.

I hope that I can do well in my studies this year and get into the best class next year.
