It's that time of the year when most of us are finished with our finals, or are in the process of doing so. No matter which stage of finals week you're currently experiencing, it can definitely be assumed that finals week is at the front of your mind right now. So, let's talk about the types of finals that you probably experienced recently or are experiencing.
1. The Scantron Scam
Yeah, it's multiple choice. But, that doesn't make it easier in any way because the professor tries to trick you at every step of the way.
2. The Rabbit Trail Essay
The professor gives you some obscure, philosophical question to answer as part of your final and it probably doesn't have anything to do with the class's subject. So, you just make up two rambling pages about diversity and world peace and anything else kind of smart-sounding that you can think of.
3. The No-Calculator-Allowed Math Test
This is that final. You know, the one that gives you nightmares for the entire finals week. The nightmares aren't unfounded either, because this will probably be your reaction for most of the test:
It seems easy, until you have to spend two hours finding all of the notes and handouts from the class before you actually go and take the test. Then, there's that one question on the test about some obscure term that your professor mentioned in class once. And you feel guilty to leave the question unanswered because you know it's in your notes, somewhere.
5. The Poisoned Goblet Test
The entire test is made up of true or false questions. This professor was probably too lazy to write up a better exam, so he/she decided to make everyone in the class suffer. Every time you try to settle on an answer, you feel like Vizzini from the "Princess Bride," deciding which answer is the right one and which one will kill you.
6. The Short Answer
It's all well and good, until you see the word "explain" at the end of every question.
7. The Internet Exam
Just as you open the timed test on your computer, either your laptop will die or a freak lightning storm will come out of nowhere and turn off all of the power. And the professor probably still won't let you retake the test.
8. The Stupidly Easy One
You put all of your effort into studying for this test, then you find out that it's actually the easiest one of all.
9. The *Insert Fire Emoji Here*
You studied for it and everything, so when you see the test you're like:
