It's finals week... the last place I want to be at is the library on campus...
I am one of the many students who complains about finals, and honestly, we have right to. Finals in some classes can be super easy and others can make or break a grade. It is also the week where teachers assume we are all graduates with degrees, and life simply doesn't exist; so they just add more homework and surprise quizzes.
I'm thankful for finals
Finals portray the key difference of college vs high school. Finals make you remember things that you need to know and they also reflect you on as a student.
Finals are also what makes us college students. The degree we all want to achieve isn't going to be handed over in a day (although that could be cheaper) You take midterms all throughout the semester and professors are always readily available to help (some.)
Finals also help professors know how well they did teaching a class. If the majority of the class fails, then that shows the professor they need to do something differently. Not to mention they are grading over 100 finals. Sounds great? You then wonder why professors assume it's a good time to assign more and more.
Without the finals I wouldn't have a true test to see if I learned anything in that particular class. That could lead to bigger issues, like moving onto the course after it and then not comprehending any of the material from the class before.
So yes go ahead and cry over finals. We, as students, really do test the theory of, " the human body cannot survive after 72 hours of sleep" ( I personally think I already broke that record) Finals are suppose to difficult.
