Math is Racist. 

Students no longer need any math skills to go to Graduate school. 

2+2 = 4, or 22, or what ever you feel is correct. 

There are no wrong answers, feel free to express your feelings e.g., anger, anxiety, inadequacy, helplessness etc. 

Should you require debriefing at the conclusion of the exam there are Counselors available to assist you to adjust back into the real world
