If you chose mostly 1, you are the student we all aspire to be! You like your major, do your homework and don’t skip class, congrats. Keep being amazing, but don’t forget to take a night off by rewarding yourself. You deserve it!

If you chose mostly 2, keep hanging in there! Although there’s a good chance you have prepared for midterms less than you wanted to, you still put forth your best effort and try your best when it comes to education. Life isn’t about being perfect, but you already knew that. The end is in sight.

If you chose mostly 3, you spent more time doing other things than preparing for your midterm! We all like a good night out, but sometimes school has to take first priority. You may want to consider changing your habits in order to pass your midterms and classes.
