Final Exam

Final Exam
The purpose of the test is to make a final review of the topics covered and assessment of each student's knowledge of the subject. Not all courses or curricula culminate in a final exam; instructors may assign a term paper or final project in some courses. The weighting of the final exam also varies. It may be the largest or only factor in the student's course grade; in other cases, it may carry the same weight as a midterm exam, or the student may be exempted. Not all finals need be cumulative, however, as some simply cover the material presented since the last exam. For example, a microbiology course might only cover fungi and parasites on the final exam (not on the previous exam!) if this were the policy of the professor, and all other subjects presented in the course would then not be tested on the final exam.In some countries and locales that hold standardized exams, it is customary for schools to administer mock examinations, with formats modeling the real exam. Students from different schools are often seen exchanging mock papers as a means of test preparation. Practice varies widely in the final or the "finals period" at the university level constitutes two or three weeks after the end of the academic term, but sometimes exams are administered in the last week of instruction. Some institutions designate a "study week" or "reading period" between the end of instruction and the beginning of finals, during which no examinations may be administered.
