This year at North Hall High School, students were no longer allowed to exempt their finals like they have in  previous years. Many students were upset about this change because the exam exemptions encouraged more students to  stay focused during the year. The requirements  to exempt finals from previous years were having 5 or less absences and an 85 or higher average, but because we did not have those exemptions this year, students were less encouraged to be present or make high grades.

I think that’s it makes kids less motivated”

After hearing the news that there would be no exemptions, many students noticed that this year, more than previous years, more students have not been attending school as much because they would have to take exams even if they meet a certain requirement.

“It makes me upset because now I definitely have to take tests on the last days of school,” said junior Zack Williams.  Though many sudents feel different ways about their exams, they are still encouraged to do their very best.
