Ever wondered what a Korean student learns at college? Well, I major in biology and this is the list of subjects I am due to take exams starting from this Thursday...
Mind that I am a freshman. I had to put off two years entering college due to poor grades at school. A long story, but I tried hard not to let that happen. One thing I really want to ensure; I wasn't a dropout, nor a good student when it came to grades. Just a so-so. I spent two years improving my KSAT (simply, SAT of Korea) scores. If someone wants a push on preparing exams, let me know. I can be the example of what happens when you don't focus!
Thankfully those efforts paid me and now I study in college. Okay, enough with that stuff... What I take for exams.
1. "Hanja" (Chinese Letters)
ALL memorizing. Need to both read and write.
Be careful not to confuse similar letters - points taken off.
THE SUBJECT THAT I AM MOST CONCERNED ABOUT. Well, hope my memory doesn't fail me.
PHEW...thanks to all that homework, at least I am not behind this time! Need to work a bit on enthalpy but that's okay.
Focus on calculations, the current professor JUST loves them. Thankfully, calculators allowed (in fact, required).
3. Physics (GAH I am a biology major...hope this is the last time I cope with this subject! I'd prefer math than this...)
Thankfully, I remember most of this stuff about electricity, magnetism from high school. Starting from waves...starts the disaster. Luckily the exam isn't going to dive into the latter much yet. That's for next term.
...if I don't ace THIS, I am going to give all applicants of my raffle a free TM from Veilstone Game Corner, as a participating award!
...a way to get motivated. I can't mess my favorite subject! I got wonderful score last semester and won't be losing it!
Seems to test my abilities to read graphs, predict what happens, and find out the maximum conditions for the best...eh...right, profit. (Uh oh)
Just wanted to talk, talk, and talk after studying.
I also take Advanced English Reading and Writing, Presentation & Discussion but they are focused on activities rather than tests. So no exams for mid term.
