For those of us who get out of school this month, how many finals do you have to take and which ones?

I only have two tests this week out of 6 classes... but also two presentations that make or break my grade, so I consider those finals also. Most of our finals were taken earlier so there isn't much left to do. The last week of school is pretty much a waste.

I've got four finals- Socials 9, Science 9, French 9, and a Math 10 provincial exam, all for next week. English exams were taken in May, so that brings the total to five.

I've done all my "finals" but that took a month. (*grins* No more!!!)

However, I've got tests and coursework as well as homework for just about every week. I believe I've got a Physics and PRS coursework for next week, working on English Literature coursework, a lot of Maths to do, an Art final to complete and some more homework for next week. This'll be a busy weekend!

I had to take an english exam, a french exam, an algebra exam, a history of mankind exam, a computers exam, and a human anatomy exam. I'm really nervous about the french exam because I know I already failed the portfolio part.It's like 20 percent of the exam. But then again almost everyone failed that part. I technically didn't fail it but it's like failing to me.


I love soccer guys.

Well, I only have one true final to take, and that's in geometry. I hope I do better on this than the midterm-I got an 89 on the midterm and the B+ looks awful on my report card. I think I can get a 95 or above if I'm less careless and the test doesn't have too much on circles/arcs and rudimentary trig.

However, the stupid-idiot-bonehead state and the stupid-idiot-bonehead "No Child Left Behind" thing is forcing our schools to do stupid-idiot-bonehead "CAPT" activities. The CAPT is a standardized state test that 10th graders take.

This means that instead of having lots of fun with our friends in activities while the 9th graders take exams, we have to write CAPT essays or other things, even in electives and foreign languages. What's the point? The CAPT doesn't test subjects like stringed orchestra or spanish. Yes, we need essay practice. No, this isn't the time to do it.

It's sad. Absolutely terrible. The teachers are disappointed that they can't keep up the tradition of fun activities (and they actually are fun) during the last week of school. Stupid-idiot-bonehead CAPT and NCLB. Stupid-idiot-bonehead acronyms.

I have four finals this semester. They're all next week: Religion, English, Math, & Science. I'm not worried about any of them except Math, its my only weak course this semester.

I have to take my Business, Drama, Gym/Health, and Science exams. Ugh. And then I have all my final projects I have to do.

For Business, I'm sure it's going to be really easy, all multiple choice and true/false. In Drama I have to do a monologue, which I haven't even started to memorize. :roll: For Gym, we're just doing sit-ups and stuff, so it shouldn't be too bad. It's Science I'm worried about though... bleh. Last semester's classes got all multiple choice, but my teacher says he hasn't decided how the exam is going to be set up yet. :/

Mine are done already--have been for a week. I only had to take four of seven, and those were the four that wouldn't exempt: English, Latin, Java, and Theology. English was the only truly difficult one, you basically had to go in and write a paper having only topic sentences and quotes. I did really well though, got a 98, and my teacher usually grades pretty rough on writing, so I was quite happy.

Congratulations, you all, for finishing your finals!
And Vermillion.... you'll have to teach me how to write papers. After taking US History AP and Contemporary Lit I've picked up the format of boring essays, but none of this topic sentence/quote stuff.

I don't take SATs until 4 years later. But if you're saying end of the year tests, we took them ages ago. It was agonizing, sort of.
