Exams?

:Everyone at my school complains about exams. I actually don't mind them... I mean, I got out pretty early today. Do you like exam week? I think it's kind of fun!

I think I'm sitting at work and it's been a while since I took exams.

Exam week was always great in high school; we'd take five midterms and get three or four days off. Good times.

In college, I've not yet had more than one final exam in a semester, so I usually end up with a pantload of free time to do whatever the hell I want. So I've never really seen a reason to complain...

I like exam week. Doesn't bother me, really. Just study and don't freak out.

We get out early. Whats not to like?

At Ohio State I typically have 4 exams within 3 days so exam week is nothing to take too lightly, not here at least. I'm sure other schools have varying policies and schedules but at a major university like OSU its no freaking joke. Exam week blows and if you don't spend your time studying you spend it sleeping or eating. I'm sure there are other opinions out there but this is just my experience. The only way to keep yourself from stressing out is studying because the bottom line is that's the only way you'll do well.

Quoted for truth. Its the same way down here at UK. There is nothing fun about exam week.

I remember in high school I had a low GPA the whole time, I never got good grades, but on all my testing for ROTC, SAT, OGT, Midterms, Finals, I got stunning results.

College testing is also alot more accommodating to me. I think while school is a test of motivation testing is really about what you know, or have in memory. I would much rather spend all day Monday studying, Friday study a few hours, then take the test and ace it, or at week intervals for finals. I never studied for a test, and got less then 3 bad test scores in my 13 years of schooling (kindergarten for those of you who can not count)

Yeah, I am currently in exam week. I go to school, take 2 exams, and go home early. Also, since I am one of the smart kids I don't really have to study which means no homework. Also, we get a day off as a teacher work day

I got out early for mine and they were before break which was really nice.

Plus I am finding this year to be very easy.

UC's exams were at the beginning of December! But they weren't too bad, I did generally well in them and my classes. I don't really worry about exams or tests, to me, they're just like extended quizzes.

I thought I'd hate it, but I love it. The exam's I take are all easy. Even my hardest class was easy! Plus we get out @ 12:30 instead of 2:55 which is cool. And I don't have Friday or Monday, PLUS I might have a snow day tomarrow!!

In my exam week, I have four tests Monday, one Thursday, and Friday I have none. Not too bad really. We get out of school early, go in for only about two hours at a time, and get to sleep in, what more could students want

I think how your exam week goes is entirely dependent on how well you've prepared yourself in advance. I personally don't really mind it. The key is to stay engaged in class and prepare in the preceding weeks.
