Freshmen shouldn't stress about exams, but should take them seriously

They're more important than you may think.

As a freshmen, these are my first high school finals. When you’re in middle school you have the state tests, but it’s nothing like finals. The benchmark test that we have depends on the teacher if it affects your grades, but there is nothing stopping your, finals going to your grades definitely. A test or project like this can make or break your grade.

I asked a couple seniors what finals were like them for the past three years they have been in high school.

“Stressful,” says Alyssa Harcourt.

“Finals were complicated but once you get to know how everything works it gets pretty easy afterwords,” says Thomas Catipon.

Some seniors can say it was easy and all good, but at the same time, some seniors think it’s hard. A lot depends on your finals and how you do on them. Most freshmen just think it’s going to be stressful. As for myself, I just think that it’s going to take work. I get stressed over everything in school because I don’t always have faith in myself.

For the most part, I’m sure everyone will do well. Colleges also look at your finals to see how well you did on them and how it affected your grade. So you always want to try your hardest on finals.

Good luck to everyone and I hope you do well. Don’t stress.
