What is Students Offering Support?
Students Offering Support is a national network of student volunteers working
together to raise funds to raise the quality of education and life for those in
developing nations through raising marks of our fellow University students.
This is accomplished through our Exam-AID initiative where student volunteers
run group review sessions prior to a midterm or final exam for a $20 donation.
All of the money raised through SOS Exam-AIDs is funneled directly into
sustainable educational projects in developing nations. Not only does SOS fund
these projects, but SOS volunteers help build the projects on annual volunteer
trips coordinated by each University chapter.

Tips for General Midterm Success
Use mnemonics to remember concepts better. An example of a mnemonic
would be acronyms.
Do practice multiple choice questions. Doing these practice questions can
assess your understanding of what you!ve learned and can help you identify
areas of weakness. Practice multiple choice questions are found in textbooks, on
textbook companion websites, and/or provided by your professor.
Read a multiple choice question and try to answer it BEFORE looking at the
possible answers. Having an answer in mind before looking at possible
answers can reduce the chances of being fooled by wrong answers.
Use logic and process of elimination on multiple choice questions. For
example, if you know that answer A is wrong, then logically an answer “A and B
are correct” in the same question must also be incorrect. When you don!t know
the answer, eliminating wrong answers (as opposed to just random guessing)
can increase your chances of getting the question right.
Practice writing answers to short answer questions. If you know ahead of
time what the questions will be on the short answer section, make a list of
essential points you want to include in each answer and practice writing the
answer on paper. If you don!t know what questions will be on the short answer
section, you could try scanning the material to identify concepts that have
enough content to be a possible short answer question. Again, you can make a
list of essential points you want to include in each answer and practice writing the
answer on paper. Even if the question you thought of doesn!t show up on the
short answer section, doing this can help solidify what you learned.
Don’t spend too much time on a difficult question. It is better to move onto
easier questions to ensure getting those marks than to get hung up on a difficult
question, especially when time is limited.
Get adequate sleep the night before your test. Sleeping at night helps
consolidate what you learned during the day into memory so that it is better
remembered in future. Not only does staying up late the night before a test
destroy your concentration during the test the next day, but your brain has not
effectively learned the material.
