Finals terror stories, as told by The Cougar staff
It’s a nightmare scenario: Your alarm didn’t go off, you’re 15 minutes late for class and it’s the day of your hardest final. No need to freak out, moments like this happen more often than you’d think – just ask The Cougar staff.
“I woke up to go to my 9 a.m. final and it’s ten minutes before the test when I walk in the room, and I realized I was in the wrong room all the way across campus. I had to run all the way across campus and barely made it.”
“I had to sign up for an honors class oral exam time, and I accidentally missed my 8:30 a.m. time slot by an hour. It turned out that the professor was running late and had to go to the airport, so I didn’t end up doing my final until 3:30 p.m..”
“I had four finals in one day last semester, and now I have three in one day this semester, and it’s on my birthday.”
“I had a final project and I showed up to class thinking it was due the next class, but it was actually due that day. I had to leave class and write it up really fast, go back, and turn it in before class ended.”
