Fun isn't ? LOL. Keep it up and good luck!
It actually was fun.
I had five exams within five weeks that are supposed to be stressful, but I actually enjoyed it.
The only subject I was worrying about was Maths. I don't know the results of the written exams yet but I'm sure I got at least enough points to pass.
The math exam was like...

It's been a while since I got the results but I somehow forgot to post them here.

I ended up graduating with a 2.3 average which was also the average result of the 58 students (out of the 61 who tried) that graduated at my school.

For grades 11+12 there is a special points system where you get 0-15 points on the tests and exams.
In the final exams, I had 9 points in German and English, 7 in Maths, 14 in Politics/Economy and 13 in French.
I have to say that I was expecting a little more in German and English but the 7 points in Math were a phenomenal result for me.

Next week I am going to start the next chapter, which is law school. I am going to attend Martin-Luther-University in Halle, which is about 2 hours from here.

Just arrived in Halle. Our inauguration ceremony was scheduled for tomorrow but it will be exclusively on YouTube.
I'm not even sure if I'll be able to watch it because our introduction events were supposed to start directly after that ceremony and it looks like they're still going to take place as planned.

After a semester of college that was almost exclusively online, I think I would've done something different if I had known that it would get this bad.

However I passed two of the three tests I wrote so it could still be worse.

Thanks for the update ! Overall , it sounds like you are moving in the right direction.
Hopefully you are still excited about the subject matter and enjoy putting the
new knowledge in your head. Keep getting those passing grades, this lock down wont last
forever.

Hang in, it will get better. Over here anyway I swear some of the entry level classes are designed to thin the herd. What probably sucks is that you don't get to talk to other students to find out which profs are pains in the ass and should be avoided if possible.

Thanks, unfortunately I failed my test in criminal law but I'll have a second attempt on that test Friday.
Passing 2 of 3 tests on the first attempt was honestly better than I expected.

Yeah, they're doing pretty much the same here. IIRC, someone said they expect about half of the 500 law students to graduate.

I didn't really get to talk to anyone on the campus at all, the next semester will be from April 12 to July, hopefully we'll get some in-person events by June.

Ok, good. Second attempts always work out better. You have plenty of time to prepare.
The secret I learned about studying for tests is the flash(index) card method. Write a question on one side
and the answer on the other. It may take you a few hours to make the cards but once you get them done
stop for the nite. Then the next day , do nothing but read the cards over and over again for 2 straight hours, then stop.
The 3 rd day , start trying to memorize the answers - for 2 hours, then stop. Then the next nite or 2 before the test ,
make sure you can answer all the card answers by memory. This worked for me from high school through college, and I even used this
method when I was in my late 40's and had to put a lot of info in my head to pass OSHA certification tests
for my profession. Criminal Law must be fun stuff. I took Business Law in college and really liked it. The one
thing I can remember about that class is making sure you knew what the names of the precedent
setting case names were and the type of law they were connected with or responsible for.
So , GOOD LUCK!

Some in my former school always used the card method to prepare for tests. I have never used it so far but I am considering to try it for future tests.
It'll take a few weeks until I get the result of the second criminal law test, the professor did a zoom call with us to discuss the first test so I know what my mistakes were. Hopefully I was able to improve upon it.
