Semester Exams and Their Importance

Semester exams are scheduled to be given next week, 23-26 January. AVID students have recorded the dates and times of exams in their planners. Although teachers are not required to give exams, many do, and parents and students should be aware of this.

Semester exams can account for as much as 20% of a semester grade.

Therefore, a semester grade may be made up of these parts:

Quarter 1 = 40%
Quarter 2 = 40%
Exam = 20%

TOTAL = 100%

More importantly, semester grades are the only ones that go on official transcripts.

These transcripts are the ones that go to colleges, scholarship and training programs, and future high schools. It's very important that students maximize this time and achieve the highest possible grades for the semester.
