OneClass is a life changer. I worked poorly my first year of university and ended up with barely any notes to study on when finals came around. However with the help of OneClass, I completely turned myself around during my second year. OneClass not only motivated me to take notes and study, but also helped me with the sharing of notes from other note-takers as well. I never missed a class and I was always on track. I didn’t think there was anything that would not only make me listen so intently in class, but also polish my notes even further after class. I raised my averages and got way better marks, allowing me to get into the major I wanted the most. I didn’t think any of this was possible during my first year. Thank you so much OneClass! "
