I failed Spanish in high school, only because I didn't give a crap. I didn't need it so it wasn't a big deal. The very same year I got a 97% average in Trig.

Psychology. I have the Final Exam left, worth 20% of my grade, but I dont know if I'll pass, even if I made a 90 on that. lol, We don't have E's in the US. It's done by percentages. If you know everything, it's 100%. If you know less than 70%, you've failed.

I'm not allowed to do anything like that. I'm extremely pissed, but it's okay. I'll just double the load to bring my GPA higher. Some kids were smart enough to drop the class early on, and I looked down upon them. Oh, how the tables have turned.

You're not allowed to make corrections in your work... than how the heck are you supposed to improve
Going through past papers (unless they are actual exam papers, in which you are not allowed your original paper back unless you pay for it) helps you identify what you are getting wrong, so you can go over those things more clearly. Are you in High school, College, University??

College. This class consists of nothing but tests. And the class is pretty easy, I would guess, I just didn't have that much time for it. I don't know what other college admissions are going to say. Nothing most likely.

Do you know where you are going wrong? Do you understand the questions, or the style of questions?

Is your final exam an overview of everything you have done this semester, or is it an exam that goes over the last bit of content that has been discussed?

I sure don't know. I'm just disinterested I suppose

Review of everything. 100 questions. If I at least make a 70 of the class, at least I won't have to take it again, but I don't think that will happen. I just want it to be over.

Or people could just discuss this on dedicated student forums, like The Student Room?

Or like, let's take out anything on TRF that doesn't apply to Tomb Raider and people can just go **** themselves if they think that they will talk about things other than Tomb Raider on this forum, cuz it's called Tomb Raider Forums for a reason.

amirite?

@ motoleo: If you have access to your old tests (and they are graded), review the questions you got right; if there are wrong answers don't say which was the correct one, then look through your notes and see if you can figure it out, and then study the right answers.

Also, isn't your professor going to have a review, or at least a study guide?
