PASS MOCK EXAM – FOR PRACTICE ONLY Course: PSCI 1000 A Facilitator: Marissa Caldwell Email: [email protected] Dates and locations of mock exam take-up: April 11 , 12:00pm – 2:00pm in CO 213 April 11 , 5:00pm – 7:00pm in CO 213 IMPORTANT: It is most beneficial to you to write this mock midterm UNDER EXAM CONDITIONS. This means: 1 • Try to complete the midterm in 2 hours (although you will have 3). 2 • Work on your own. 3 • Keep your notes and textbook closed. 4 • 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 session with your mock exam complete. There, you can work with other students to review your work. • Often, there is not enough time to review the entire exam in the PASS session. Decide which questions you most want to review – the facilitator may ask students to vote on which questions they want to discuss. • 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 session, you can work alone or with others in the class. GOOD LUCK!
