The Question Club
I was diagnosed with ADD 2 years ago. The disability center at my college said that I could get extra time on tests if I want. I never knew about this until now, and I took a test before. I was the last one to finish (I finished right when class was over, and the prof. kept on saying, "Come on...come on...turn it in."), but got a 100% while the class average was 65%. My professor came up to me at the end of class, and told me that I did the best out of all his classes. |
Later, I told my professor about the ADD thing, and how I could get more time on tests according to the disability center. At first he said that he doesn't think I'll need it because he thinks I'm the brightest student he has right now. He said that he'd check with the center about it. He just checked with the center and it was confirmed that I could take the test at the center with more time. I asked him, "What if I have some questions on the tests? How will you answer them?" He replied, "I won't be able to. Well, that's the price you pay for having the test proctored." I feel like he's looking down on me because he thinks I'm trying to get an advantage over other people when I don't need it. Plus, the center said that usually profs would stop by for questions.
Should I take this extra time? Honestly, I think I don't need it THAT much, but it would give me more time to review my answers rather than not reviewing it at all (which was what happened last time). I could probably ace the upcoming test, but will probably be the last one to finish again. Should I tell him that I changed my mind about taking the extra time--I really feel that he thinks really lowly of me now. I was planning on getting a recommendation from him to transfer because he always told me how he thinks I'm bright and all.
