So many assignments with so little time

As the school year comes to a close, the students of Carlmont are preparing for summer vacation. But, before they leave, every student is required to take final exams.

Junior Bryan Ding is not a fan of the finals. “I don’t like the fact that we have to study for every subject,” said Ding. “But, every class has finals so you can’t avoid that.”

To prepare, the teachers have assigned numerous amounts of assignments to help students study for their finals.

From packets to study guides, the amount of work is overwhelming for most students.

Junior Daniel Brown is spending the entire week preparing for finals. “The amount of homework that was given is ridiculous,” said Brown. ” This is not a good way to end the school year.”

Junior Christopher Fong is also occupied with homework this week. “There are way too many assignments that were given to us,” said Fong. “I have a lot of studying to do over the weekend.”

Though it is not a fun way to end the year, the finals give students a chance to bring their grades up.

Seniors, on the other hand, have already taken their finals before the rest of the school.

Senior Nathan Galicia is relieved that his finals are now completed.

“It feels good,” said Galicia. “It’s like a huge weight off my shoulders.”
