Exam What can be said about exams? Well most CDS students would prob ably like as little to be said about this topic as absolutely necessary never theless the topic must be addressed The first word that comes to mind while pondering the essence of exams is PROCRASTINATION Procrastina tion is a way of life for CDS students Why make up a schedule and study two hours a night for two weeks when with the help of several dozen cups of coffee the same plethora of data can be absorbed in a single all nighter 7 CDS students thrive on the pressure and the challenge involved in trying to learn a years worth of information in 24 hours Procrastina tion is the first phase of exams at CDS and is immediately followed by a sec ond more painful phase DEPRESSION The CDS student body wakes up from its euphoric dreams of passing exams without studying and at school one can no tice a slight oh so slight tint of depression set into the green speck led floors of CDS Those unshaven coffee drinking zombies suddenly are awakened to the harsh reality that not only were they unable to learn the entire history of the modern average in history just fell to a meager B due to the heavy weight of this end of semester exam Enough said about semester exams Let s get to the good stuff We re talkin AP s Advanced placement exams are great fun Dont let anyone tell you differently One of the greatest feel ings in the world is to study hard all year to take a college level exam in say Biology and then have to answer three 25 minute essay questions when you dont have the faintest clue as to the answer And as far as you re con cerned they might as well have asked the answers And as far as you re con cerned they might as well have asked pected to answer correctly only 50f'fu of the multiple choice questions There is however a good side to AP s You get to stay home the day before the exam and if you play your cards right you can take three exams and miss the whole week And as if that werent enough you don t have to take any end of semester finals So AP s are alright if you take in to con sideration these positive aspects of the advanced placement experience Basically exams are fun or at least a challenge We love them by john Gregory I - . .

Since we are a college preparatory school, that is our mission and our consistent record verifies that we are fulfilling that mission. We can all take pride in that." - Doc Kalmar 26fExams
