So, Test III was fine. Still made around the same grade as the first two, despite trying new study techniques. Her tests are still ridiculously random and there’s no way to tell what’s going to be on it. However, a few habits have proved useful through each test:
- Attending tutoring. That has been a valuable asset.
- Reading the text book first, then reading the review book THEN taking notes on subjects that are confusing.
- YOUTUBE! Youtube videos are awesome; I remember stuff way better if I watch it.
And that’s about it. Half the class dropped after the 3rd test because most people were failing. On to the more interesting stuff. A week before Test IV, the class gets an email that our instructor is in the hospital and not coming back for the semester. The new teacher comes in next class day and lectures in an entirely different way with new notes and new techniques, etc. Obviously everyone is panicking since a test is coming up but the new teacher assured us she would be kind, give us a curve, etc. We didn’t even know until 2 days before the exam if she would be making a brand new test or using the test from our old teacher. Ugh. Stressful.
Anyway, none of it mattered because cause what? Day of the test, after people had started the exam and the room gets quiet, someone realizes they are missing all the even pages of the test. And then we ALL realize we’re missing the even pages of the test! So the teacher tells us to answer what questions are there and she’ll give us points for the ones that aren’t. That means everyone was guaranteed to make a 50! haha… AWESOME! Needless to say, I made a 98! WHOO HOO! Sometimes other people’s incompetency does make my life easier.
Exam V has been pushed due to bad weather (stupid Southerners afraid of “ice flurries”) but it’s in a few days. Can’t wait to have this stupid class done with!
