I can't really make any sort of estimation regarding the result, seeing as last time around I felt relatively good about it and it turned out bad. However, while reading for the test this time, I noticed a couple of glaring mistakes I had made the last time: 1) giving the wrong years for the Sino-Japanese wars start and end, and 2) referring to Russia as the Soviet Union. The kind of mistakes you make when you've had a restless night followed by a couple of hours of last-minute cramming. My brother didn't think they were that serious mistakes, but from what I've heard about the examinator, I can really imagine that's why I was failed. (There goes the crazy theory I had that they're harsher with answers in Swedish.) It feels good to have at least an idea of the reason I failed; when I got the results for it the first time, there were no notes at all on it, just two marks to indicate which ones were bad and a "U" on the front (for "underkänt"). Being failed without being given a reason pissed me off, to say the least (and also gave birth to the previously mentioned crazy theory).
In any case, if I can squeeze through it will be a weight off my shoulders.
