i’m an art student, and we don’t normally have “finals” as most people would define them, but i’m still struggling to finish all these projects by the end of the week! i’ve got a full illustration, a spot illustration, at least two concept art pages, an essay, a book to read, and a painting about the comanche people to finish. oy! and then once winter break starts, i’ll need to make enough progress on my thesis to prove to my professor that i’ll be able to finish it in time. lucky for me, i have no classes on friday, so i plan on spending the whole day sleeping and playing skyrim. πŸ˜€

Haha, I came to the bee for a quick break from outlining. Thankfully I only have one final this semester, all of my other classes were papers/projects that wrapped at the end of classes. So this entire week I’ve got one last final to study for, and then I sleep. Hibernate like a bear until my brain grows back πŸ™‚

I have a project due Wednesday that I haven’t even started (I will officially have zero life come tomorrow) and I have an online open book final (not as easy as it sounds!) due Wednesday as well. This is my first quarter back in school after a decade, and it’s a bit of culture shock!

Ugh, tell me about it.

I took an 8 year hiatus from college and boy oh boy, I was rudely awakened this semester. I got burned out at the 8-week mark.

I’ve got regular coursework, two tests, 1 research paper, another paper that is considered a final (different class), and then 3 actual finals in the next 12 days.

Yes, finals suck. Papers suck. Projects suck. I’m totally over this semester but I still have a week/week and a half to go and a ton of work to cram in. πŸ™ I’m feeling totally overwhelmed. It’s make it or break it time and I hope I can pull it off.

Haha – I read your post and my first thought was “Dealing with students studying for finals sucks!”

Good luck!  Start studying now and don’t wait for the last minute!

@Rock Hugger: Hah, that was my first thought too. Also, marking finals sucks. I’d probably rather write a few finals (only 2 hours each) than mark 80 of them (takes days and is terribly depressing). 

OP, I’m not in any way trying to downplay your pain. I’m instead saying that this time of year sucks for all us who have anything to do with uni/college.

Grr tagging still not working. @Lemma, my profs don’t have to grade though! Our questions all come out of a standardized bank they select the topics for and the computer grades it for them. πŸ˜›

I’m so there with you, except I have two papers to write and my wedding is in only a few weeks!

@chasesgirl: How many students in your classes? I’ve dealt with scantron grading and it’s not much fun either. True, it gets graded for you, but in a class of 1200 people, there are always a bunch of people who didn’t fill in their student ID, or filled the darn thing out in pen (!) or managed to screw it up some other way. Then, you have to fish through all the scantron sheets to try to figure out what the marks should be. 

I’d definitely prefer marking say 50 math exams to dealing with 1200 multiple choice ones. This year I have to mark short answer/essay style exams so that’s going to be extra unpleasant.

My finals are next week, but I do have one this week for my night class (the finals for night classes are taken during the last class period rather than during finals week). I also have a paper due tomorrow that I have been trying to finish all day. I can’t wait until this semester is over.
