6 Tips To Answer MCQS

6 TIPS TO ANSWER MCQS Multiple choice questions are a form of test given to students to pick the most appropriate answer from several other statements. That sounds cheap but trickery. Especially when the negative marks are awarded. Check the following scenario, if given an exam covering 100 marks having 100 questions. You decide to answer 70 questions which you get 56 and you get 14 wrong, they have to be deducted from the 56. That leaves you with 42, a fail. It is even worse if you attempt the 30 you were not sure of. With luck on your side, you get 15 right because you get 15 wrong, overall remains 0. That means you were better off not trying!

Too Busy for a Friend… Remember, you reap what you sow

Too Busy for a Friend… Remember, you reap what you sow Too Busy for a Friend… Remember, you reap what you sow. One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name. Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down. It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers. That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual. On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. “Really?” she heard whispered. “I never knew that I meant>>>

Gifts from the Heart

Gifts From the Heart Gifts from the Heart… According to legend, a young man while roaming the desert came across a spring of delicious crystal-clear water. The water was so sweet he filled his leather canteen so he could bring some back to a tribal elder who had been his teacher. After a four-day journey he presented the water to the old man who took a deep drink, smiled warmly and thanked his student lavishly for the sweet water. The young man returned to his village with a happy heart. Later, the teacher let another student taste the water. He spat it out, saying it was awful. It apparently had become stale because of the old leather container. The student challenged his teacher: “Master, the water was foul. Why did you pretend to like it?” The teacher replied, “You only tasted the water. I tasted the gift. The water was>>>

Choice #1

Choice #1 One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, “Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.” I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. I think it’s supposed>>>

Before they call, I will answer

Before they call, I will answer  This beautiful story was written by a doctor who worked in Central Africa One night I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in spite of all we could do, she died, leaving us with a tiny, premature baby and a crying two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the baby alive; as we had no incubator (we had no electricity to run an incubator). We also had no special feeding facilities.. Although we lived on the equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts. One student midwife went for the box we had for such babies and the cotton wool that the baby would be wrapped in. Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle. She came back shortly in distress to tell me that in filling the bottle, it had  burst (rubber perishes easily in tropical climates).. And it is our last hot water bottle!’ she exclaimed. As>>>

57 cents + God = a majority!

57 cents + God = a majority! Let me introduce you to Hattie May Wiatt, a little girl who made a big difference with just 57 cents.  A first-hand account of Wiatt’s contribution to God, community, and others was told in a sermon delivered Dec. 1, 1912 by Russell H. Conwell, pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Philadelphia, Pa. A little girl stood near a small church from which she had been turned away because it was “too crowded.”  “I can’t go to Sunday School,” she sobbed to the pastor as he walked by. Seeing her shabby, unkempt appearance, the pastor guessed the reason and, taking her by the hand, took her inside and found a place for her in the Sunday school class. The child was so happy that they found room for her, and she went to bed that night thinking of the children who have no place to>>>
