The link to the online discussion board for the final scored discussion of the year is now up and active! Comments are due by this coming Friday at 10:00pm!
Tomorrow is the big day!!! To our Fall and Spring semester students we want to say relax, you've got this! Get sleep tonight, eat a good breakfast in the morning, and show up at your testing site early and you'll be great! If you are reviewing tonight, focus on rehearsing your writing skills. Review the material on writing LEQ's and DBQ's on the writing tips page and make use of the review site we have vetted and linked on our exam review page.
REMEMBER please to make smart decisions in the testing room and don't jeopardize your scores or the scores of other students. Leave laptops, tablets, etc. at home. Phones will have to be TUNRED COMPLETELY OFF and left in the front of the testing room. To be safe, TURN OFF all sounds, notifications alerts, vibration, etc. in the morning so that if for some reason your phone does not get turned off before the exam, it will not make any noise if you get a call, text, or app notification.
If you have any last minute questions, feel free to shoot us an email this evening! Good luck tomorrow!
