Abstract/ Summary

Education is fast approaching the stage where students are crossing a line between a desire to succeed and the fear of failure. Although UMO tends to shrug off the pressure of grades, many students them of great concern. They gulp their meals and rush to the dorms to study, they toss in bed, losing sleep before tests--if they go to bed at all--and many sweat out every test and grading period as if waiting for the Judgetment. The fear of failure is well hidden in most cases, but there it is.
