This is a breaking story and will be updated as it continues to develop.

The Why Intersection has received multiple reports of a “red dot” appearing at the top of students’ myCourses page. After clicking on the dot, some students have fainted or cried. Others simply compartmentalized their feelings of failure to deal with another time.

“I’ve been expecting it to happen,” Molly Moody, U2 Arts said. “But I just didn’t expect to get a 42 per cent on my food chemistry midterm. I eat food every day, I thought I didn’t really have to study that much.”

Some students were spared such shock, though, as they prepared by sacrificing their mental health and wellbeing for an 85 per cent on a test that won’t matter in ten years.

“It’s not that big of a deal, but I got an A on my first ever biology test,” Tamara Tweedy, U0 Science, said. “I slept in the library about half of my time here so far. Redpath rocks.”

This is obviously Tweedy’s first semester at McGill.

If you or a loved one has been affected by the red dot, please reach out to us. We’d love to hear your sob stories. If you passed your midterms, go call FaceTime your mom or something.
