– to piggy back off of this.
I took every chance to book time for my professor’s office hours after every exam. Even if I fubar’d the mid-term, I still went to professor and asked them why I got the question wrong. I would genuinely wanted to know why I was incorrect so the next time I encountered the problem, I would know better. Sometimes, when I was being genuine, the professor would adjust my score because they understood what my line of thinking was when I answered it. And every point helps!
The takeaway is admitting you are wrong and then asking them why you are wrong.
