The chance is 15%

So, some of you may know that my style of studying is based on 3 principles:
  • study as less as possible at home
  • try to understand and memorise (if needed) as much as possible in class
  • study at home only when you really don't know (e.g. for Democracy class)
With this style of studying, I achieve a GPA of up to 4.63, which is amazing considering I didn't do homework 30% of the time, and 80% of my time at home was spent using the PC (excluding sleep, eating and that stuff). If I wanted a 5.0 GPA, I would have to say goodbye to my free time that I get (which I'd end up using to work on mapping, modding, programming or gamedev projects).

In other words, I wanna work on projects as much as possible, while studying as less as possible, while still maintaining a 4.50 GPA at least.

Now, here's the thing. The 1st semester ends on the 31st of December here, and then the winter break starts. The problem is, my GPA is 4.28 at the moment. It used to be 4.4 until I ruined my score in Electrical Measurements and Digital Electronics, decreasing them both from 5 to 4.

(quick reminder: 5 here is A, 4 is B, 3 is C, 2 is D, and 1 is F)

So now, instead of improving Electronics and Democracy, I also gotta improve German and Bosnian to pass with a GPA of 4.50, which is the bare minimum to pass with an excellent status, otherwise it'll write "very good" on the paper, which my parents, grandparents, and the whole family would absolutely hate. :P

Well, today I managed to improve German, at least I believe so. We had a written schoolwork and I did it for an A.
Tomorrow, however, is the judgment day.

I got an Electronics test, Democracy test, and a Bosnian oral exam. The chances of me getting A's in all three are 15%. Lol.

The day of judging all my sins (of me not studying). The time will come very soon, unfortunately, but at least I've been preparing. I hope I'll survive, and if I do, then my winter break starts right on the 27th of December, cuz' I got no exams left afterwards.

Merry Christmas folks, happy holidays, I wish you all the best, soon it'll be 2020, it's been nice and everything, blah blah blah, I don't even celebrate Christmas, lol.
Now excuse me, I gotta go study for once. :3

well gl, do your best
studying sucks, but probably still better than ending up as a cargo hauling drunkard

Update: Bosnian is now a 5.
Electronics and Democracy will be known tomorrow. If I haven't done Electronics well, I'll do it in Monday.

Man, this is so intense. I like the sensation of pressure.

I believe my worst year was 7th year of grade school when I scored 2.92.
I could not tell from the text what your affinity is. This is by the sound of it Middle school. What are your plans after getting done with it? College, work?

I go to an engineering school (elektrotehnička čisto da se razumijemo ;) ), currently in the 3rd year.
I plan to go to college after it, just so I can get some extra time to work on projects, so I can hopefully build up a portfolio over time.

Anyway: today I improved my Electronics score, fixing my GPA from 4.47 to 4.53.

Heh, my man. I finished middle electronics school, went onto faculty of technical sciences (Higher Technical School). Engineering is only as hard as much as you dont want to do it.

It's not hard at all for me. I just didn't practice often for Electronics class this semester, so I got a bit lost on the test in Thursday.
Today I did that test again, successfully this time. :3
