During finals, students only need to attend the periods in which they have classes.  They do not have to attend during lunch, study halls, or resource.  PAWS teachers will discuss final exam attendance with their classes.

  • The LMC, UC and cafeteria will be available for studying during finals.
  • All students must be on time to their final exams.  Students tardy more than 10 minutes to an exam may be considered truant.
  • If a student is ill for an exam, a parent must call the attendance office, 847-932-2174, before 10:00 a.m. on the day of the final.  Please call your student’s counselor to arrange a make-up exam.
  • Seventh semester seniors may be exempted from an exam for a semester course if they are receiving an A for the semester to date.  Seniors should check with teachers to confirm grade.

STUDY TIPS

  • Start reviewing for finals now.  Do not wait and try to “cram” all the information into your head in one night.  
  • Final Exams can count up to 20% of the semester.
  • If your teacher provides study or review guides, work on them as soon as they are provided to you.  Write things out and don’t just look at notes.
  • Have a parent or friend quiz you on information you believe will be on the exam.  Make flashcards for vocabulary words and carry them with you.  You can review them when you have unscheduled time.  A few minutes at a time can make a big impact.
  • Get a good night’s sleep before your exams!  Staying up very late the night before an exam will only make it more difficult for you to remember facts, formulate thoughts and process answers.  
  • Exercise and eat healthy.  Exercise and good nutrition not only keep you physically well, but it also can help maintain your emotional stability.  Exercise can help raise your energy levels so you can continue to study more effectively. Consider exercising on the morning of the exam to get the blood flowing and the mind sharp.
