The Curve Giveth, and The Curve Taketh Away

This past month we had our midterms. Most of them were online and not for a grade, and one was for 20% of my grade. I personally think that they're kinda just BS, but what's really nice about them is that you get to see how professors structure their questions and where they try to trip you up. If you do have an online test, I suggest either taking a screenshot of each question or writing them down as you go. I say this because one of my professors went over the test the next day in class, but I couldn't remember what some of my answers were to correct myself.

As for my graded midterm, I got really excited about only missing 3 out of 20 because this was for Constitutional Law. My Con Law class is two hours a day, and usually by hour two I'm so bored I'm not even paying attention. I really thought it would be like last semester and I wouldn't do so hot, and was pleasantly surprised ecstatic that I didn't fail it.

That was, however, until I got an email from my professor letting everyone know that the class average was a 16/20. Although I am technically above the class average, there's a really good chance that because everyone else did so well, it's going to pull down my grade. So now the pressure is still on for me to do well on my final so that I can beat the curve, but at least this time I am starting out in the B range.
