Midterms have already occurred in some classes are are unfortunately coming up sooner than later in others. It’s that time of the semester when professors decide to test their students’ knowledge on what they have learned so far on a stressful exam. So far, I’ve only had one major exam for midterms, but I know that there are plenty more exams and projects to come.

Being a college student can be tough around midterms. It’s like a miniature finals week, where half the school population I stressed and caffeine-fueled and the other half is in denial. Not everyone has midterms, and midterms are spread out over several weeks, not condensed into one. Even still, they are stressful and make people nervous about their grades. Luckily, even if students perform poorly on their midterms, there is still time throughout the semester to get their grades up—that is, if they put in the extra work to do so.

The only midterm that I’ve had so far did not go as well as I had hoped. In all honesty, I probably should’ve studied harder than I did, but I had felt confidence that made me feel like I knew more than I actually did. Even though I haven’t received my grade yet, I am not too worried about it, since I’ve been doing well in the class up until this point.

I know that there are many more midterms to come, and I am praying that they go well. If you have a midterm coming up, good luck to you! We’ll get through this together.

  1. Great post Julia! I can't decide if I'm the "stressed and caffeine-fueled" type or the "I'm in denial type" but either way, midterms and finals are tough. You made a great point, we all have to get through them together.
