Due to the change to the school calendar, final exams are now before winter break.
That means there are only three weeks left to prepare.
Semester examinations usually account for 10-20% of students overall grade. Generally these exams cover topics from the entire semester and are written at the district level. Usually teachers distribute a sample exam with over a hundred problems some time the week before the exam. This leaves students feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to begin.
The Answer is to not wait for this packet. By reviewing your own notes and materials now you can get a jump start.
