For the first year engineering students at the University of Waterloo, midterm week (or more commonly known as ‘hell week’) is right around the corner. Other university programs spreads out its midterms over the course of the term, but at Waterloo Engineering, all your midterms are scheduled in one week; one after another, and is one of the most intense week for all engineering students at Waterloo. It would be pretty unlucky if you had a midterm at night and then the next one in the morning. Anyways, that’s not what I’m here to talk about: I’m here to talk about my experiences with midterms, specifically in my 1B term. Nikhil’s post was about his learning experiences after you fail your term and tips to prevent that, and my post is what you should do before you fail the term.
