"how were midterms?"
You've probably heard this phrase numerous times in these past few weeks:)
And whether the results from those midterms were satisfactory or not, the good news is that there is always room to improve. I've had my share of good and bad midterm grades and the most important thing that i've garnered is that it's not the end of the world. And there are lots of things to be done after that initial shock and dimay to a grade on the paper. Because as interesting as it may sound, grades are not indelible~
First, you could start with reviewing your exam and learn from the mistakes. This way, you will have a better idea of the professor's style of testing and what type of questions he likes to ask. Because a lot of times, the exam is not a comprehensive assessment of how much you know. Rather, it more accurately reflects how well your test taking strategies are. In order to score better next time, you might think about going to office hours and professors will often give you hints to what they emphasize. So, buckle up your belts and start working hard! Although they may not be a guarantee to an A in the class, you will have at least gained much knowledge from the process. And even if you end up with an undesirable grade at the end of the semester, you could retake it and have it replaced in your overall GPA if it was a D or below. So believe in yourselves and cheer up~
