    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by lordofhats, Dec 3, 2007.

    For those in college when do your exams start? I have my first in English tomorrow. Two on Tuesday, one on Wendsday, and the last on Thursday. Does anyone else have Exams coming up?

    I have an English oral exam a week tomorrow. I have to do an oral commentary on either one of eight possible scenes from Othello, or one of eight possible metaphysical poems. And it has to last about 12 minutes. I'm screwed.

    You have an entire week. Do you get to choose in advance which of the 16 commentaries you will present?

    My exams are coming up in the first few weeks of January.
    The written part won't be a problem, I can read quickly enough as long as the students are legible.
    But I have to do about 300 oral exams. All alone:eek:

    It's hard for students, but us teachers have problems to.

    True story. Senior year of high school, I had a Human Relations course taught by the principal, and senior English. Both required a term paper, but I convinced both teachers to allow the paper for the other course to apply. In the end I wrote no paper, and managed to get an A in both courses anyway.

    Another one, different school: Back in 8th grade, the English teacher, Mrs. Parslow, required a monthlybook report. She kept giving me C and D grades on mine, until I wrote a report on a non-existent book. It was my first A- book report.

    So yes, sometimes bull patties DO rule. :)

    P.S. - I don't condone such behavior. Don't try this in your school!
    P.P.S. - Teachers now have the Internet to look up books, and computer records for grades on papers.

    Reminds me of a saying:

    If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bulls**t.
