New finals schedule released

November 17, 2021 — by Ethan Lin
The released finals schedule is set for the week of Dec. 13.

During remote learning, there was no specialized finals schedule — many teachers also elected not to give finals. However, with the return of in-person school, the finals schedule has reverted back to the traditional four-day schedule during the last week of first semester, from Dec. 13-16. Unlike in the past, the finals schedule includes a tutorial period between finals.

Principal Greg Louie announced the finals schedule for the 2021-22 school year fall semester in an email sent on Oct. 29. On Monday, Dec. 13, the first half of the day will consist of consecutive 20-minute classes of periods 2, 4 and 6, followed by periods 1, 3, 5 and 7. During these 20 minute blocks, students will have the opportunity to ask teachers any last-minute questions and review for finals. After lunch, a 2-hour block will be allotted for period 7 finals. 

From Tuesday Dec. 14 until Thursday Dec. 16, days will be split into a final in the morning and a final in the afternoon. The final exams will be two hours long from 8:30-10:30 in the morning and from noon-2:00. Finals for periods 5 and 6 will be on Tuesday, Dec. 14, periods 1 and 3 on Wednesday, Dec. 15 and periods 2 and 4 on Thursday, Dec. 16. 

Juniors and seniors found this year’s final schedule reminiscent of the annual pre-pandemic finals schedule. 

“I feel like the new finals schedule is similar to the one we had in our freshman year,” senior Amitav Rawat said. “I think it works, and it’s good to return back to a normalized schedule after a year and a half of the confusing remote learning schedule.”
