Exams this year are January 14, 15, and 16. That is approaching considering it is already halfway through the month of December. In order to make sure the freshman are ready and aware that this is coming, we had a meeting to tell the freshman the in’s and out’s of exams.
We all have different memories of what exams were like in eighth grade. They didn’t require that much effort to study and ask questions.
Today we received a schedule about how exams are going to work. The advice that the seniors stressed the most is to not worry. “They are just exams, not life or death.”
To a little freshman it can be a bit stressful, especially if your scholarship is riding on it. To most freshman that is the situation.
Getting exempt from all of your semester classes would be ideal, but that can not happen for all of us. It is coming back to us that not correcting that test, which would have only given you a point back, could have got you exempt.
You can get exempt from most semester classes, unless the teacher does not exempt. You normally have to have a 93% for your semester average, in order to be exempt. For classes like English and Math, you have to take exams.
We received a schedule of how the exams are going to work with the bell times.
We also recieved tips on how to avoid test anxiety.
if you don’t have to take the last exam, you can leave. You do not have to arrive until you are scheduled to take your exam. If you have the first and last exam but not the middle, sorry about your luck but, you have to stay.
This is a recap for other grades, a guide for freshman.
