Exam week can be a stressful time on campus. How do students feel about the stress from exams, and how many hours do they spend preparing for them?
"Trying not to cram last minute and knowing exactly what to study for is the hardest thing about exams," said Mercetia Parr, a 22-year old junior.
Depending on the subject, Parr said she spends about two to three hours a week studying for her exams.
"The most stressful thing about exams is that they count so much, and why in the world would someone give you a reading assignment with an exam," said Halesha Anthony, a 25-year-old sophomore.
Anthony said she spends about nine hours a week studying for her exams.
"Time management and procrastination is a big problem for me," said Holly Robinson, a 21-year-old freshman.
Robinson said she finds it better if she crams for an hour before her exam. Some students find that cramming is better for them than actually studying for hours.
"The worse thing about exams is that they all come at once and back to back," said Charles Thomas, a 21-year old junior.
Thomas said he only needs three hours out the week to study for his exams.
"I tend to overthink, and I hate when I not sure exactly what to study for on the exams," said Dane McCullocit, a 21-year-old senior.
McCullocit also only needs three hours out the week to study for his exams.
"The hardest thing about exams is actually finding the effort to put forward on studying itself," said Matthew Reeves, a 24-year-old junior.
Reeves says he does all the studying he needs in 10 minutes.
"Failing is the worst thing about exams," said Hanson Ndongyam, a 22-year-old junior.
Ndongyam said he spends about eight hours a week on studying for his exams.
"Having all of my exams at the same time is very stressful," said Isis Pinkston, a 20 year old sophmore.
