Passing or Failing?


Isabel Corona, Staff Writer

With finals underway, many students have been pulling their hair out and staying up all night. Are you one of those students?… The real question is if finals are being blown out of proportion.

Finals are a cause of stress and lack of sleep. People don’t want to fail their classes or come out with grades deemed unacceptable. Students shouldn’t feel like their whole world will crumble at the hand of a letter. It’s too much pressure to put on a teenager whose aspirations might not have anything to do with a specific class. If someone is pursuing a career in the English language, then should it matter if they aren’t the best at math? This leads to the continuing controversy regarding the school system. Should so much of our grade depend on a single exam? Have we not shown our abilities throughout the semester? 


What do you think about finals?
