Michael's father cannot believe his son's grade in the test and can't help but be very angry as he is also surprised. He explains to Michael that he can no longer progress to his first choice but his third choice school.
Michael couldn't determined whether he was dreaming or not so he woke up sweating and very anxious. 'Michael.' says his Dad. He goes into his living room to see his Dad very happy indeed and finds out he aced the test to progress onto his first choice secondary school which is a grammar school fifteen minutes away.
Michael goes out to the garden to reflect about the dreams and nightmare he had last night. He then realised he hadn't revised for his S.A.T's but took it as a wake-up call to the next stage of school, that he should start to.
