My state decided to make all high schoolers who have taken certain classes (except for the seniors, unless they didn't pass last year's exam) to take these new tests. The freshmen get seven chances if they get to take it now, sophomores get six, juniors get three, and seniors get one. That's the plus-side (second chances are great).

The negative is that on top of state exams we're also having midterms, on the same days, and regular class tests. The teachers have no mercy. I guess that's fair though.

Welcome to my world. I have midterms and finals and I took all the provincial exams before.
Most likely, your state exams will not be way harder than your school midterms and finals, so just study and you'll get it done when you get it done.

I would normally say "Yay! I'm done with school!" :iconyaayplz:

BUT... I'm stuck looking for a job with money dwindling and school loans looming! I'd rather go back to high school. :noes:

I am aware, from what I've heard, how life after school is much harder, but I am still stressed out. That was the point of this compliant, haha.

That really does suck though, and I hope you find a job!

We had those in my high school. They were really easy. No one studied for them.

Yes, the standardized tests are easy, however mid-terms and the others aren't easy as the standardized tests. (That's really sad on the state's part)

The standardized tests don't matter at all, because they don't count since I'm in 10th grade, but if I don't pass them in 12th grade I can't graduate.

No need to apologise. If you want to go to college and do well, you have to do a lot of hard work and the work load will increase. Third Level Education is completely different ball game from Second Level. =S

State standardized testing is generally painfully easy. The high school exit exam in my state is apparently laughable, and usually everyone passes it (except the non-English speakers).

I don't study for standardized state tests; they're easy. I just don't like them being sprung on me. (I just found out I had to take these last week or something, and they don't even count)

California instituted a standardized test that high school students had to pass in order to graduate quite a few years ago (I think I took it as a sophomore, in 2003 or 2004). Any 8th grade student in my district should have been able to pass it easily, but apparently there were students throughout the state that were repeatedly failing it (and, even worse, in my high school). :| Also... it only tested math and English.

Standardized tests are lame.

If its those standardized tests that all schools :/ once kids know it doesn't effect your grades etc. they will mark anything for answer. I did since those tests are more of a waste of time.
