It's not as bad as you think!
The worst is yet to come!
Final exams are coming, and to many students this is the make-or-break point of their university careers. For those who are able to pass their courses this term without breaking a sweat, I salute you. For those who do not fit into that category, remember these few tips:
- At least you're not in Laurier
- Engineers have to retake their ENTIRE term if they fail a course. Even the stupid software engineers. Count yourself lucky.
- Studying for exams is just like studying for midterms-it's just that there are an extra six weeks of notes. Just take a deep breath, use the exam bank to take the previous years' exams, and you'll be fine.
- Whatever you do, do NOT take out Starcraft for some extra practise in anticipation for Starcraft II
- If you do fail, do not lose hope and transfer into arts. We'll only love you if you're a mathie.
- Try to study alone. That way you won't get distracted by your smart friends who would rather be doing anything else.
- If you must study with friends, make sure you study with others who actually want to study, and not those who want to hang out. If someone mentions bringing chips/pop/video games/hookers, you might be better off studying alone.
