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.
• 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!
