Here We Go, Again
So, it's finals time. One final, in particular, sounds extremely amusing. Of course I'm speaking in my typical sarcastic tone. I seem to recall ranting about how bad one round of tests earlier this semester was; it's the same class as one of those I said was too long. But this time, things are a little different: three essay questions instead of two, and six short-answer questions instead of five (I think it was five; maybe it was four). That's right, it's 25-30% longer than the last one, in the same amount of time. And this guy wonders why no one in his class has EVER gotten an A on the final (he said that at one point in the class) - no one has ever FINISHED the final. Or maybe it's not a surprise to him at all, and simply that he doesn't WANT anyone to ever get an A on his final.
