I've got 3 finals total this week.

I had English today, as well as calculus II. English I didn't even study for, because I was at the position where it was mathematically impossible to get an A in the class, yet to drop down to a C I would have to have failed it pretty bad. I ended up getting a C on the final and kept my B in the class.

Calculus II, ugh. Barley have a C in the class, so I pretty much need a C to keep my grade in there. I think I got at least a C, I'll know for sure at the end of the week.

Then Wednesday is Pychology. Have an A in there right now, need an 81 to keep the A, not too worried.

Then, there was the Java final I didn't have to take :D I guess the teacher figured with my 102% in the class, he could excuse me from the final

thanks.

The funny thing is, I didn't do sh*t to deserve it either. I skipped class often, and when I did go, I didn't pay any attention. I guess teaching myself PHP years ago, and taking the intro to C++ class last year just made the assignments and tests easy for me.

Being a senior in a fine arts high school, pretty much all my classes are not worth studying for.
(well, except for calculus. MMM.. calculus)

I get out at noon every day this week (except for friday.. it's all over then, baybee!)

Let's see, tomorrow: Calculus( :eek: ), Government (hah.)
Wednesday: Practice period (take a nap for two hours), BCIS (Goof off on MR for two hours)
Thursday: Strings (I can't play.. gimpy, so goofing off on MR for 2 hours) and symphony (See "strings")

but, I still get to show up on thursday.
Hoo-freaking-ray.
*head on desk*

this time, next year, when I'm crying because of all my finance classes... I'll look back on this post and just sob even harder.

I'm lucky in the finals department. Since I'm poor, I can only afford part-time enrollment. I have one final and it's an in-class essay on several Dickinson poems.

To the people who don't have to take certain finals- I loved that last year. My spanish teacher let me not take it coz I had like 101%.

I have 8 ( :eek: ) this week. They are, in order:

P.E. (arguably the hardest-all anatomy, and worth 30% of the semester grade)
Social Issues (a joke- mostly identity, drugs, and alcohol. Should be easy.)
Science (not too hard, plus I'm mathematically guaranteed an A in the class)
Nonfiction (brutal. Exceedingly arcane stuff there. Mostly obscure grammar.)
Advanced Algebra (not too hard. Have an A now, expect to set the curve or be near it on the final)
Biology (moderately difficult. Lots to memorize.)
English (hard. Charting a hero's quest from memory. The easy but tedious part is a timed essay on the impact of Fate in Romeo and Juliet.)
AP Spanish (20% done already-speaking. Hope I've studied the grammar enough, coz it's gonna be a very dense test.)

That's it. The week from hell, and then two to party. Ugh.

as much as i dislike finals (sophomore in high school fwiw) they signal the end of the semester, so they're good in my mind. we get out at 1:30 thursday on friday which is cool. the only ones i'm dreading are pre-calculus and world studies (combined english and world history). our pre-cal final is mostly about logs (i think) which we just learned last class for the express purpose of the test we have tomorrow :rolleyes: and world studies....well i just haven't done any work in that class so i don't know anything about to kill a mockingbird or greek history :eek:

Yup, same here, and yeah, I've pulled a couple all-nighters.

I think it's great that you're on your first college finals. Seems like just yesterday it was July, and you were asking for advice about dorm life. :)

Argh. Finals. Well at least tommorow I have a Comp Sci Final on Java. That will be easy. However Wed brings about my ENGL-101 final. Oh man am I not looking forward to it. I don't even really know the books we were supposed to read. Oh I read them sure enough. I just don't know them. Great. Then my last final is first year Psychology. Easy enough. Then Freedom!

Let's just say after Thursday I wont be able to walk straight for awhile...

I'd kill myself if I were you... I only have 1 10-day paper, and I can't bring myself to doing that...
