    Midterm Already?!

    Happy Sunday, CNET!

    How are your classes going this semester? Do you feel confident in your understanding of the material or has it been a struggle?

    My class I am taking just had our midterm exam last week. This is two weeks ahead of our actual spring break but I can’t believe this class is almost halfway over!

    Wishing you all luck!

    Hi Morgan,

    I have a second mid-term coming up in about a week in the same class. The professor has two mid terms and a final. It is an online class, and I don't have to go to the campus to take it. I understand the material but some concepts are a little tricky. The last mid term exam we had was not only timed, which is fine, but we couldn't see all the questions at once and didn't have the ability to go back and review questions. There were a few questions I would have liked to go back and review that I was unsure about at the end when I had some time left, but it wouldn't let me. One question had multiple parts to it, and I didn't even realize that I skipped over two parts until after it was graded because I couldn't go back and check over everything. So, I'm not looking forward to it just because the way it is structured I will feel rushed.

    Hey Morgan!

    My midterms are kicking my butt!!

    I am an Industrial Engineering student so I have a lot of math and science classes. So far, Physics has taken up the majority of my attention. I don't understand it as well as I wish I did.

    I just can't wait for this semester to be over so I can start living again!

    I know! I can't believe we're already almost half way through the semester! I started spring semester in January and we're ending it in May, and it's already close to March!
    It surprises me now that I think about it because in some classes we only just had our first exam. But then it makes sense because in those classes we only have like 2 or 3 exams for the entire semester, which is honestly a lot of pressure because our whole grade depends on those exams, since there are no homework assignments or quizzes or whatnot.
    I don't think I particularly have a solid grasp on the materials I'm learning, although it honestly depends on the class. If it's a class more relevant and interesting, for example my nutrition class, then I would be more enthusiastic to learn and spend time on understanding the materials. But some other classes require more pointless memorization and I can't exactly apply it to my life so it's just hard to relate to and make sense out of.

    But anyway, I'm still glad we're half way through the semester! I hope the rest of the semester goes well for all of us! Have a good one!
