Exams are coming up and students aren’t to worried.

Exams start on Tuesday, June 5 at 7:30 with hours 1-3, with the last exam ending at 12:30.   Then on Wednesday and Thursday the day starts at 7:30 with only two exams those days, 4 & 5 and 6 & 7,and they finish at 10:45.

Some  students who take AP classes won’t have as many exams as other students because they already took the exam, like senior Rose Irwin.

“I haven’t done anything to prepare for exams so far. I only have one exam since I had all AP exams so I’ll study for Spanish by doing flashcards about vocab and practices for grammar,” Irwin said.

Teachers are helping their students to prepare them for the exams.

“To help students prepare for final exams, I distributed review guides and am doing between one to three days of review in class (depending on the class—more review for freshmen, less for seniors),” English teacher Elise Strupp said. “I am going to do an activity where we practice annotating directions to make sure students really read the directions on the exam so they don’t miss points by not following directions.”

Students have tips for taking the exam for the future years.

“Just study all weekend the weekend before exams start and you’ll be fine. Utilize your time between exams since we have half days. Make sure you study in chunks instead of cramming the night before,” junior Alyssa Dobbs said.

“I would just recommend to stay calm about it, go in for help if you need it, find a friend that can help, and just not to worry too much about it,” junior Natalie Norton said.

Teacher also have some tips for the exams.

“Start getting on a good sleep schedule the weekend before exams. Don’t stay up late–go to bed around 9-ish so you can get 9 full hours of sleep before waking up around 6:00 or 6:30, which is approximately when you will need to wake up on exam days. Stop looking at your phone at least an hour before bed: looking at the blue light from your phone inhibits your brain’s ability to produce melatonin, a hormone that is necessary for healthy sleep,” English teacher David Freitag said. “If you usually drink caffeine, make sure you drink it on the morning of exams. If you don’t usually drink caffeine, don’t drink any before your exams. Don’t eat or drink anything sugary before your exams, or you will cause your blood sugar to spike and then crash in the middle of your final–the symptoms of this are difficulty concentrating, fatigue, and brain fog, all of which are unhelpful in doing well on exams.”
