finals

Sweet Relief

Tonight I had lecture. The last lecture before the final for my BIOSCI100 class. I didn’t want to go but I did because even after 6 hours of working over my notes for the exam, I still had questions about a few topics and I knew we’d be reviewing for the exam too.

When we got there, he passed around a sheet to put our names and student ID numbers on. Some instructors do this on the first day of class and on days there’s an exam, but this was a normal day so it was a little weird.

We finished the end of chapter 20. He then tells us that because we showed up, we’ve been a good class and he knows it’s been hard for a lot of us, we’re getting the exam to take home and complete at our leisure, due Thursday night.

I reviewed most of the exam questions, realized I already had most of the answers in my notes, and headed home.

It took me about 90 minutes to answer all but 5 multiple choice questions and 5 or 6 short answer questions, with only a few I wasn’t 100% about the answers.

Tomorrow I’ll go thru the class notes again, find those 5 other answers, and doublecheck the rest of them. There’s no reason I can’t get an A on this exam, and maybe a B in the class.
