our exams started last week but in class ones so its not much of big deal, the real big exams started today and end friday and you can only have up to 3 exams in one day if your really unlucky. and if your lucky depending on how many courses you have you can do 2 monday 2 tues and be done and have the whole week off to work on the truck or just do somthing.

Is this like winter break along with Spring break? We don't have winter where I am from, haha. We would have exams before Christmas and in May, which were half days...other than that, we were in school.

College is so much better...

yes i did, for two reasons. well one i had no choice.

1. In grade 12 they put me in a english course that i did not sign up for, so i could not keep up, we were getting assignments every 3 days!!! And i couldnt change classes cause they were all full so my only option was to drop that class get a no mark and take english again but the right one.

2. I could take some extra courses i knew i was good at and actually enjoyed and improve my average.

We were able to get out of our exams last semester senior year also.

What I remember though, was when the Jrs. were taking the TAKS test (standardized test required for graduation) we seniors got the days off that they took the test. So I spent 4 days straight at my girlfriend's house drunk out of my mind, lol.
