Midterms

I have midterms comeing up soon in most of my classes. The only exception is the "advanced" classes that first term students dont normally take but I somehow met the standard to get into. I am curious how many schools have midterms and if so, for how many semesters?

Georgetown generally has no midterms, but professors can give them if they want. A few (like 5%) of professors do them.

I've never had one, and won't before I graduate. I am glad.

Interesting. Ours tend to be worth 10% of the total class grade. When your schools do it how much percentile do they tend to be?

Curious.  Knowledge ingestion months early causes just as much concern as knowledge ingestion months later.  Noted for super weapon: date of brain congestion matters not.

Well everyone seems to be surviving them, so they can't be too bad.  8)
