There are two times in a semester that all students hate: finals and midterms. Let’s be honest. No matter what your major is, we all hate midterms. Why? Because it’s one of the busiest time of the semester.
The first few weeks of the semester, professors are taking it cool, not giving you too many tests or assignments. Weeks go by, and suddenly, you have 4 exams and 3 papers to hand in during the same week, and you’re asking yourself how you’re ever going to go through this.
I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed. So stop, take a deep breath and let’s go through this together. This is my guide for how to survive midterms. View Post
The transition from high school to college can be tough, on more than one level. But what freshmen don’t always seem to realize is that college classes are harder than high school ones. It might be not the case for every single one of your classes, but you will find yourself struggling to get grades as good as the ones you used to have in high school. Getting A’s in college is much harder than it is in high school. And while grades aren’t everything, it sure impacts your college life.
During my first semester at university, I managed to get A’s in every single one of my classes. That gave me a 4.18 GPA (in Quebec the GPA is calculated out of 4.3), which is pretty amazing. I never expected to do that well in my first semester, because I had heard that college was much harder than high school and cegep (another Quebec thing).
But if I can do it, I know you can too! Once you have figured out a routine that works for you, it’s not that hard to get those straight A’s. This is why I’m sharing my secrets to getting A’s in college.
I hate to break it to you, but finals are coming.
