    This is really fantastic news - I am SO glad to hear it!

    I've corresponded with you, Knok, and I know what this test has subjected you to in terms of stress. I really honestly cannot think of any student who deserved a passing score more than you.

    I'm grateful for your thanks, and impressed at the thoroughness of your testimonials about a range of teachers and services - BUT... let's not forget all the help and support you have been giving people on this forum, even as you toiled yourself to pass the test. I think a lot of people owe YOU thanks as well!

    I'm very happy for you Knok. Very best wishes to you in the next phase of your career.

    All the best,

    Dear Jason,

    Thank you for your kind words. Many students and I would have not been able to pass this test without your help and hard work. Please forgive all bad posts that students post in this forum. They were stressed out from repeating the tests so many times. Please continue to give us support and help. On aspect of the forum is that nobody knows exactly who one is until they chat personally. Until now, many people think that I am a teenage guy, around 25 years old. That's good....

    congratulations
    Thank you. Believe in yourself and do whatever you think that it is right. Enjoy your days. Good luck to you.

    Life is not always fair. Finally, we all are dead. As long as we are still alive, please do whatever is good for you and others. Sooner or later, we will get there.

    "Good or bad, hard to say."

    "Once upon a time, there was a king. The king liked one of his followers
    very much because he was very wise and always gave very useful advice.
    Therefore the king took him along wherever he went.

    One day, the king was bitten by a dog, the finger was injured and the
    wound was getting worse. He asked the follower if that was a bad sign. The
    follower said, 'Good or bad, hard to say'. In the end, the finger of
    the king was too bad that had to be cut.

    The king asked the follower again if that was a bad sign. Again, the
    follower gave the same answer, 'Good or bad, hard to say'. The king
    became very angry and sent the follower to prison.

    One day, the king went hunting in the jungle. He got excited when he was
    on the chase of a deer. Deeper and deeper he went inside the jungle.In the
    end he found himself lost in the jungle. To make thing worse,he got
    captured by the native people lived inside the! jungle. They wanted to sacrifice
    him to their god. But when they noticed that the king had one finger
    short, they released him immediately as he was not a perfect man anymore and not
    suitable for sacrifice. The king managed to get back to his palace after
    all. And he finally understood the follower's wise quote, 'Good or bad,
    hard to say'. If he hadn't lost one finger, he could have been killed by
    the native people.

    He ordered to release the follower, and apologized to him. But to the
    king amaze, the follower was not mad at him at all. Instead, the follower
    said,'It wasn't a bad thing that you locked me up.'

    Why?

    Because if the king hadn't locked the follower up, he would have brought
    the follower along to the jungle. If the native found that the king was
    not suitable, they would have used the follower. Again, the quote 'Good or
    bad, hard to say' stands.


    The moral of the story

    Everything that happens in this world, there is no absolute good or bad.
    Sometimes good things turned out to be bad things eventually, while bad
    things become a gain. Whatever good things that happen to you, enjoy it,
    but don't have to hold too tight to it, treat it as a surprise in your
    life. Whatever bad things that happen to you, don't have to feel too sad
    or despair, in the end, it might not be a total bad thing after all.

    If one can understand this, he or she will probably find life much
    easier."
    "Whatever you do in life, will be insignificant,
    but it is very important that you do it
    because nobody else will."
