Why are you asking here? Surely you do not want someone to do your exam for you.
i need help
I Just completed that exam, if this is the career you tend to pursue! I assure you, you will fail if you can't even take a exam! Let me rephrase that, A high school elective exam.. Imagine what college will be like, esp if you depend on other peoples answer to do your work for you.
i'm pretty sure that if the person who asked this question knew they were gonna catch hell for asking someone to help they wouldn't have all they needed was some f**king help okay? God! so hard to help out people these days.. i fail the test so don't worry having the same problem lol don't feel down about yourself i got a %45 and am trying to fix my answers lol there is no reason for people to down others just because they are asking for a little help..
but she didn't just ask for a little help she wanted all the answers, it would have been different if she already had her own answers and ask some one to just check them and maybe let her know which ones are wrong so that she could look them back over
