I swear to god my school hates my generation. First they start enforcing the dress code on us freshmen and now their taking away our exemption rights. Its so not fair. The Jrs and Seniors got it the easiest, they get to exempt everything if their grades and attendance are good enough. In-fact, I'm taking more midterms this semester than the Jrs have in their entire time in high school. I feel like cursing out whoever invented the stupid STARR test. Seriously, Texas really needs to stop with their stupid new tests. Its getting ridiculous.
I feel your pain. In Canada, a bunch of years ago, all you needed to have was a seventy five percent average to be exempted from exams. It's super frustrating when you could get a zero on the exam (that's worth 30 percent) and still pass the class with a 65. I mean, seriously. If you're going to get the credit anyway, what is the point in taking an exam that will lower your mark?
