What are midterms? Midterms as many college students know are tests to assess how people are doing during the middle of the semester. The semester is coming to an end with just a couple of weeks away from Thanksgiving and finals right around the corner. Some people may feel groggy or just sad because of the midterm grades they may have received. In my eyes no matter what midterm grades you receive, do not panic because that will only add on to the stress you felt when receiving those midterm grades. Midterm grades are a reminder to let you know whether you have to push up your grades or on the right track. The way I feel about some of my midterm grades is ecstatic because I have nothing lower than a B and honestly strive for better. If you have an A- in a class, do everything in your willpower to get that to an A because it will only benefit you in the long run emotionally and mentally. There are only two things you can do about midterm grades improve them or downgrade them, and the choice is
Midterms post feels can be amazing and feel depressing at the same time, but do not let one grade fool you or make you happy for so long. Bombing one test during that time can bring your grade down drastically, similarly to passing a final with a high score and boosting your grade. It is all about time-management, effort and not only memorizing the material but understanding the material taught to you. Understanding the material is keen in many classes around college and can make you realize that every bad grade can be turned into a good one. I can imagine how people felt when they received an E on their midterm grade or D+ for a major class that cannot allow those grades. It is nerve-racking, scary and just pressuring you to do better like a final shot for the game winner in a basketball game.
Everyone do not feel feared because of those "bad" grades you received during Midterm week. Nothing should bring you down up till now because it's now or never; So pass all those exams you are receiving with higher grades than ever before! Tests are ways to scare some people and assess others of what they have learned throughout the years. I find that midterms can determine someone's understanding of the curriculum, but not of what they know about it. Knowing and understanding are two different things and midterms differ all of that.
