God damnit.  
I found out that about three of my teachers are planning on giving out exams this year.
The thing I'm pissed about with this is, that because the damn 'rules' changed, we no longer have half-days at the end of the semester anymore. We have full days. Teachers are not required to give exams, but are allowed to do so if they please. This just- pisses me off. Why would teachers want to give out final exams if they are not required? We don't get half days, which, for one is total bullshit, and secondly, when there are exams being taken, my lunch hour class has to sit in the same room for 3 hours. -_-

It's... hard to explain.
Last year, at the end of each semester, the school would only last for about half a day, and we would take three exams (in three classes.). For some un-godly reason, they changed this. So.... well, yeah.
Now we have like... full days with evil exams.

I'm currently passing most of my classes with a 'D'. I do indeed plan on catching up and raising my grades before the quarter/semester ends, but I'm still not ready to take any exams.
See, I understand in colleges and such they have exams. That's perfectly understandable. Last year, I had 'normal' exams. I think exams should indeed be required. It shows that the student has been paying attention in class and yadda-yadda. But still, I don't think we should have to take..
....yeah, I really don't know. Just saying, if any teacher expects us to take final exams, we should be getting half-days. That's all.

The good thing about this is the exams are no longer a huge part of our grade, and are only similar to the percentage of a test. Boo-ya!
