ECON 1002 E
It is most beneficial to you to write this mock midterm UNDER EXAM CONDITIONS.
This means:
• Complete the midterm in 2.5 hour(s).
Work on your own.
• Keep your notes and textbook closed.
• Attempt every question.
After the time limit, go back over your work with a different colour or on a separate piece
of paper and try to do the questions you are unsure of. Record your ideas in the
margins to remind yourself of what you were thinking when you take it up at PASS.
The purpose of this mock exam is to give you practice answering questions in a timed
setting and to help you to gauge which aspects of the course content you know well and
which are in need of further development and review. Use this mock exam as a
learning tool in preparing for the actual exam.
Please note:
Come to the PASS workshop with your mock exam complete. During the
workshop you can work with other students to review your work.
Often, there is not enough time to review the entire exam in the PASS workshop.
Decide which questions you most want to review the Facilitator may ask
students to vote on which questions they want to discuss in detail.
Facilitators do not bring copies of the mock exam to the session. Please print out
and complete the exam before you attend.
Facilitators do not produce or distribute an answer key for mock exams.
Facilitators help students to work together to compare and assess the answers
they have. If you are not able to attend the PASS workshop, you can work alone
or with others in the class.
Good Luck writing the Mock Exam!!
