We still have to take our exams on certain days and complete assignments before deadlines. This might sound familiar to you, or your classes might have a slightly different structure.
Wherever you go to school, there’s bound to be those notable, extremely difficult classes that many majors end up having to take. These classes can bring your GPA down, be unorganized, or simply not at the depth you want to learn the material at.
