The clock is ticking, and the first day of finals is getting closer and closer.

On Monday, Dec. 17, the first day of finals will officially begin. Finals will end on Thursday, Dec. 20.

As finals approach, Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) students can use AVID study nights as a resource to get help for their upcoming assessments, which are held during the week before finals.

AVID is a program that intends to prepare students for college. There are currently eight AVID classes at Carlmont, with two classes per grade level.

AVID study nights, which only AVID students can attend, are held from 3:30 p.m. — 5 p.m. during the week before finals.

“The study nights are set up to help students prepare for finals and collaborate,” said Irene Oliveira, a freshman AVID teacher.

During the study nights, students may work on homework, study, and ask for help. Many students collaborate with their peers in order to further prepare for the finals.

“I think the study nights are nice because it’s a separate space where I can focus on my work,” said Emma Evans, a sophomore. “I usually don’t get as much work done at home because I feel too relaxed, so it’s nice having a place where I can get things done.”

As the study nights progress, the AVID teachers, who are facilitating the students, walk around and answer any questions students may have about their schoolwork.

“I choose to come to the study nights because I can focus here and ask others for help if I need it,” said Natali Rodriguez, a senior. “They definitely makes me feel more prepared for finals.”

Students who show up to the study nights can often benefit from the extra study time. However, those who do not focus may end up damaging their chances of succeeding during the week of finals.

“Students who actually use this time to study and don’t goof off will end up being more successful,” Oliveira said. “The study nights are set up to help them, and whether or not they utilize this time efficiently is up to them.”

AVID study nights, designed to help AVID students prepare for finals, allow them to get extra study time and collaborate with their peers. While students may wish to simply study or finish assignments, they may also work with other classmates in order to better prepare for finals.

“Just like with many other things, you get out of it what you put into it,” Oliveira said. “Students who are determined to do well will get it done.”
