Host: What information should I get from my teacher?
Amanda Medders: Your teacher is the one that created the test so she knows or he knows a lot about that exam. You should check to see what materials are going to be covered.
As we mentioned, they could cover the entire school year. Some finals may only cover the second half. So you want to make sure that you clarify that, so that you’re directing your study where it’s going to be the most helpful.
You also want to see how much time you’re going have for the exam. And how many questions are going to be on there. Along with that, you’ll want to know what the format of the test is.
So for example, you would want to know is that completely a multiple choice exam? Is that an essay exam? Is it a combination of the two? This will also change the way that you prepare for the exam.
You will also want to check to see if your teacher is going to be holding any study sessions. If so, you want to make sure that you go to these sessions. Take full advantage of any after school help that he or she may be giving.
You also may want to check to see if he or she has any advice on what to focus in on. Sometimes, the end of the year material is tested more so than the beginning of the year material. And you want to make sure to check on that.
