This past week, all freshmen have been taking their first cumulative exams at Fontbonne. Each class gave an exam based on topics that we have covered in the school year already.
For some, this may be nerve-wracking, however, our teachers have given us great reviews and notes to prepare us for the exam. Cumulative exams can be very stressful and the students have to use their time management skills to make sure they cover all the information in each class.
Each cumulative exam is structured differently for each class. Some tests take more than one day while others are done in one period. The Algebra Honors exam took two days and was in three parts, while our Global History exam was 25 multiple choice questions and an essay, all done in one period.
Since most of our exams are finished, we are all relieved. However, we are eager to know our grades. Our quarter 2 report cards are coming out soon, so we will see our grades in a couple of days!
