Students Feelings about Finals


Lots of students feel pressured, depressed and even stressed out just thinking about the finals. Freshmen that have never taken a form of finals might be really scared. Here is what some students have to say about the finals, but we aren’t giving their names. We just interviewed two students from each grade.

  1. Freshmen “I feel nervous about the finals.”
  2. Freshmen “I feel scared and I think the finals are a waste of time.”
  3. Sophomore “I am nervous and I might stress out.”
  4. Sophomore “I’m nervous about finals but I have to do my best.”
  5. Junior “I think I’ll do okay on the finals they seem easy except for biology.”
  6. Junior “I’m nervous but I have to do my best.”
  7. Senior “I think I will do okay on my finals.”
  8. Senior “I’m scared that I might flunk my finals.”


Every student in Caldwell High School is pretty nervous about finals. Good luck for each student and try your best on passing the finals.
