It’s about that time again. Midterms. There’s nothing more productive than a student faced with 4 exams in the coming week, not to mention an entire campus! It’s the time when the entire campus realizes, “Oh hey, it’s time to buckle down and study!” Several professors have long papers due this week, and almost everyone I know has at least 2 exams, if not more.
As a science major, my experience with midterms is fairly limited; most of the science faculty has four exams scheduled throughout the semester, meaning that many of my exams end up within a week of each other. This week, I have tests in Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry, but two and a half weeks ago, I had a test in both of those two, plus Physics. It was a bit rough. But this weekend is Spring Break! There is light at the end of the tunnel, at least for a week, and we’re all looking forward to it.
