Regents Exams will take place here at East High School from Tuesday, January 24th through Friday, January 27th. There are 11 different exams. Students should take these exams very seriously because they determine many things in our future and count towards our graduation. ‘’These exams are one of the things that stand for who you are outside of the school’’ said Mr. Meade, our exam coordinator. These January exams are also “giving students a second chance,” said Senior Saranne Kaufman, who is retaking U.S. History in order to graduate.
Students who are taking any of the exams might be experiencing mixed emotions, but there are important things you could do to prepare and ease the stress. You should keep in mind to be here on time and keep your motivation. Also remember to ‘’have a good night's sleep and a good breakfast,’’ suggested Mr. Meade. Remember to be confident in yourself and give the best of your ability.
