Finally! Midterms have come to a close. For the past two weeks, our days have been filled with scan-trons, awkward fishbowl discussions, drinking coffee, and nights of endless studying. In your classes, it is clear that not all students handle midterm exams the same way. Here were the four different kinds of people during midterms:
1. The Procrastinator
There is always that one person who waits until the last minute to study and try to accomplish everything the night before. The Procrastinator will be texting in your Honors Biology group-chat at midnight asking about the study guide and posting Snapchats about how they are going to fail. It feels like nowadays more and more students are being The Procrastinator because of their busy schedules and having a lot of homework to do. However, being The Procrastinator is not only depriving yourself of sleep, but also even stress inducing than not studying at all. It’s important to create a schedule ahead of time to prevent all-nighters and last minute freak-outs so it will save yourself and others from having a rough midterms.
2. Studied Too Much But Still Freaks Out
This is that kid who stays up all night to study but still knows they are going to do fine on the test. They have been reviewing since the middle of Christmas break, and by doing so they freak everyone else out by constantly talking about how much they still need to do in order to prepare for tests that are still weeks ahead. Despite them knowing deep down that they are fully prepared, they don’t think anything is ever enough. To avoid from being this kid, just relax and listen to your friend’s reassurance that you’ll be just fine.
3. The One Who Doesn’t Even Know It's Midterms
This is the student that doesn’t realize midterms are happening until the day they start. However, they don’t seem fazed at all. They easily go through their exams and just want to go home and sleep and hope for the best. Whether or not they do well, their care-free attitude might be something that other students need (sometimes!).
4. Blessed with No Midterms
Everyone is jealous of this kid. For all eight periods, they only have 2 classes to take midterms for. They might have projects or essays to write, but they are still privileged with the fact they don’t have to take any exams. They come in late and leave early almost every day, and snapchat themselves eating at PRD’s with everyone secretly hating them. It is rare to be this person, because we all know that teachers love to give tests. If you are this person, take advantage of it and catch up on your sleep!
