i am an engineering student from the Philippines and today we will only have one exam. it is good however the schedule is bad. 8am to 5Pm is the regular schedules of exams and classes in our school yet our exam for today is scheduled in 4:30 Pm to 6 Pm . i have no classes before it so this is my only schedule for today. the school needs a 30 minute ride form our place because it i on the other town. :) so today, i decided to travel earlier before the exam.

If that is what you think is right then you must go for it.

I am wearing a U.P. shirt  - This is a shirt from my alma mater, University of the Philippines.
I could just remember those times when all I had to do was study, get good grades and be grateful for the blessings I got. Lucky are those who are able to go to school and finish college.There are still a lot of people in our country who have to cross rivers and walk on foot because they can't afford the fare to their schools and to home.I saw this when I had chance to serve our countryman as a doctor in the mountainous areas. =)

Back in college, I used to have exams in the evening even if my regular classes are done during the day. And there are two reasons for this: 1. The teacher is also the examiner. Most often than not, major subjects in college are all handled by only one professor. And though the said subjects are done only about 3 times or 2 times a week during the regular period of the school year, the duration of the class can be around 2-3 hours per session though. So, if the professor handles 4 or more classes, that means he/she has at least 8 hours to do his/her job as an examiner if he/she wants to give his/her exams to all the classes in one day during the examination period. 2. Schedule on the use of the room of the "morning" and "evening" regular classes are interchanged. During examination period, our school makes room assignments for each class. However, there are times that the "evening" classes are able to obtain first the use of the room of the "morning" classes. So, chances are that the "morning" classes will have their exams in the evening. I think it doesn't matter if exams are done during the day or in the evening. A person prepared to go into battle can win against all odds; be there the sun or the moon. I hope you will do well and forget not to check the back page of the questionnaire if there is something to answer there. It will cost you so much points if you miss it especially if the subject is Mechanics or Calculus!

Good luck with your exam. I hope you do well. Exams are really scheduled mostly in an inconvenient time. But at least it is the only thing you have in mind right now. Still a blessing to have only one exam in a day but maybe you want it to be scheduled in the morning so you can still do some other activities after. Oh well, that's life. God bless.

Looks like the teacher has a busy schedule... I think the only good thing in doing an exam in the afternoon is that you have a few more hours to study. But otherwise I never liked them - I always woke up early in the morning, and in the afternon I was tired already. But it's okay, we just shouldn't stress about it. Good luck with your exam!
