Finals Week is Here

 

We all know that finals week is one of the most stressful weeks of the entire school year, but as we know many people handle stress differently. I interviewed a freshman, Abbey Gabriel, and a senior, Callie Jepson, to see the differences in their thoughts about finals. They both said they were not that nervous for finals. Gabriel said she was most nervous for her Honors Math and Honors English finals, while Jepson said she was nervous for her AP Calculus final.

Gabriel is ready for her Spanish, Health, and Biology finals because she has gotten an A on all her quizzes/exams in those classes. Jepson is confident for her AP Government final. Jepson has not started studying yet but plans to do so soon. While Gabriel is nervous for her finals because two of her grades are teetering on the brink of an A and a B, Jepson isn’t nervous about her finals. Gabriel has begun to study for her finals each night in 30-minute increments. Gabriel said, “To prepare for finals, I read all of my homework and tests(if my teacher gives them back) and, for Math at least, I re-do problems over and over again.”

While Gabriel is nervous about what her finals will do to her grade, Jepson is not as much. To manage her time for finals, Jepson takes time off to really buckle down and study. Gabriel does not manage her time as well as she would like, but she hopes in her 2nd semester she will do better. When asked about whether she is nervous for her finals Jepson said, “Yes, but after the first day you realize it’s not a big deal.”

To all of BUHS: Good luck on your finals and study as much as possible! Also get a good night’s sleep, eat a hearty breakfast, and drink plenty of water before and during the finals.
