Dear Students and Parents,

Final Exams Dates and Tips for Success

Final Exams Season begins next week. Please ensure you do not schedule appointments or go on any trips on an Exam day. If there is an urgent reason you can’t be at an exam, you need to contact Mrs. Suzana. The following tips will help you get a good mark without stressing out:

  1. Don’t leave studying for the last moment. Plan your study. Get ready in advance and approach your teacher if you have any questions.
  2. The night before a test go to sleep early. You will then wake up well rested and full of energy to write the exam.
  3. Eat a good healthy breakfast. Researches show that students who had a good healthy breakfast before a test got better results than students who didn’t eat before the test.
  4. Arrive on time. Arriving late will prevent you from writing the exam on that day, and you will have to come during the summer to write it.
  5. Make sure you have sufficient writing equipment, or any other equipment you need for your test.

Extra Help

If you feel like you need some extra help before the exam, our teachers will be happy to help. Please approach your teacher with specific questions.

Term 2 Schedule

The schedule for the next semester is ready. Please come to Ms. Irina’s classroom to confirm your schedule and courses you take for the next semester.

You can come on Thursday, January, 16th, from 1:00 - 3:00. If you are not at school at this time, come on Monday, January 20th, at 1:00.

Text Books

Please be reminded that you must return the textbook by the end of the course to school.  Otherwise, you cannot write the final exam. You can bring it at the exam's day and give to the teacher.
