How To: Survive Midterms

Alexandria Richbourg

Hey, college students, it’s midterm time! What better way to start off your week than with a test that’s worth a good percentage of your grade?
If you’re good with your study habits, already know most of the test material and feeling pretty confident, you’re in good shape. If that’s you, then continue to study hard, relax, don’t over think and treat yourself to something nice.
However, I think it’s safe to say that if you haven’t started studying and your test is less than 24 hours away… yeah, you’re screwed.You might be stressed and annoyed, but it’s okay! We’ve got some great tips and tricks for you to get through this difficult time!
Get some ice cream.
Binge watch your favorite show… Review your notes during, but you probably won’t retain any information so just enjoy your show.
Get a good night’s rest.
Smile on your way to the exam and think about this “L” you’re about to take.
Walk out of your exam with your head held high because it’s finally over!
When people ask you how’d you do? Just smile!
Next time, study beforehand and practice better time management skills. Sure you took a loss, but we’ve all been there and this won’t be your last. At the end of the day, yes, your GPA matters but it doesn’t define you.
Happy Midterms!
