I assume you're in America - what are mid-terms. Hasent your year finished. You start a new one next year, I dont get what midterms are - you have exams at the end of the year and then you move on, right?

but good luck in your studies.

They are exams half way through the University/College/School year.

Nope, university/college/school year starts around september here. We have terms/semesters. The first term/semester finishes in December. Then the next term/semester starts in Jan which is when exams are sometimes. This is not properly half way through the year but you get the idea.

Year is in reference to school/university year (from Sept/Oct to June/July/August) rather than the general use of the term year (Jan to Dec)

No I'm from Belgium actually We get exams after the Christmass Holidays (mid-terms) and we get exams at the end of the academic-year in June (Finals) based on those exams you'll be either given the green light to pass your year or they'll invite you for a second chance in August

Yup, that's the proper explanation

Good luck everybody!

I have an exam at uni in January, a mid-term test in February, a paper due in March. But I have all of my exams, bar one in January, in May and June and if I don't pass them then, I have them in September.

No.

It seems so easy when the school year has been that way all your life either way would be fine by me.

I just finished mine. Got 3 A's.
Next semester will be much tougher so I'd better enjoy these grades while I can.

I feel you. Got 4 A's (3x A+, 1x A in fact), but this was the first semester with only one tough course. Next semester will be very different I will have to enjoy my grades too While they last
