Disquiet Confidence
Many students are very stressed about exams. Because the task does not give a mark, so I have no pressure at all.
I was very nervous because I didn’t know how to write, how to attend exams. I felt quite confident when applying for jobs in companies.
Distrust Trust
You can never trust your lecturer. I thought I was very optimistic about my job opportunities.
First, I was reluctant to ask but he was very kind and helpful to me. I trusted in whatever the lecturer told us.
