Final Exam Information

Posted on: February 17, 2016

Please take note of the information below as it pertains to final exams for the 2015-2016 school year.

FINAL EXAMS
Final exams for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will take place Monday, May 23 – Thursday, May 26.  The format, duration, and weight of final exams will be the same as the exams that took place at the end of 1st semester, with exams being 90 minutes in length, and factoring as 20% of the 2nd semester grade.  As was the case for 1st semester, all teachers will be required to submit all exams to the high school administration for review prior to administration of the exams.  All students taking final exams are expected to take their exams at the scheduled time, unless approved by an administrator. The schedule of final exams and classes can be found here: EXAM SCHEDULE

 

AP EXAMS
Students in AP courses will be taking the AP Exams beginning Monday May 2.  All students currently enrolled in an AP course are expected to take the AP Exams from CollegeBoard as administered here at Milford High School.  Because all students in AP courses will be taking the official AP Exam for those courses, there will be no final exams for AP courses.  The second semester grade for AP courses will be a straight average of the 3rd and 4th quarters of this school year.  Upon the completion of AP Exams, teachers are expected to continue instruction and assessment in those courses until the last day of school for students.

SENIOR EXAMS
Senior exams are scheduled for Friday, May 13, and Monday, May 16.  Senior exams will be one class period in length, and will factor as 20% of a student’s second semester grade.  Seniors will be exempt from exams for courses in which all of the criteria outlined below are met. 

Attendance: A senior may not miss more than 2 days of a class between Monday, April 4 and Thursday, May 12.  This covers the period of time between spring break and the end of the school year.  School sponsored field trips, or other school sanctioned activities will not count against a student’s attendance in terms of exam exemptions.

AND

Grades: Seniors will be exempt from exams if they have a “B” average (80%) or better for the year in that course.

We look forward to closing out the 2015-2016 school year on a positive note and remaining focused upon the education and learning of our students.
