Oh, I'm currently waiting to take my Art History of China final. Why do I have to take an 8pm final? Insane..it's an elective...nothing to do with my Masters in Education: Computers and Ed.
Anyway, not to go back to that controversial part of this post but there is always a possibility of learning disabilities. I was always considered very intelligent but everyone thought I was pretty lazy and careless when it came to math (got a 5 percentile on my SATs). But it was an undiagnosed disability, and because my parents didn't believe that I was trying quite hard to understand what was going on I wasn't diagnosed until I turned 18 and went off to college (where I promptly signed up to take the tests). Point is, it takes patience, time, and understanding on the everyone's part. Cheers.
