I don’t think so

He walked into the classroom after school. He had taken the final exam earlier in the day, and now he was here to make up a test he missed a long time ago.

“I have some news,” I said after he had walked past the students finishing overdue homework. 

He stiffened.

“You did well enough on the final that you’re passing.” 

He let out a long breath.

“Oh. That is good, good news.”

His face was covered in sweat, his eyes wide with relief.

“What do you want to do? Do you still want to take that other test?” 

He looked at me, paused a moment and then said, “I don’t think so.” 

Good decision.
