Final Exam FAQs

1. When is the final exam?

The final exam window opens 12:00 am December 4 (12/4) and closes at 11:59 pm December 5 (12/5). Students must complete the exam during this window.

2. How long in the final exam?

The exam is 90 minutes. You must complete the exam in 1 sitting. No starting, pausing and returning later.

3. Where do I take the final exam?

The exam is online in our course under Quizzes. It will become active and be the last quiz link on 12/4. Some schools require the final exam be completed at school with a teacher present; others do not. You should check with your facilitator about your traditional school's policy on when the exam should be completed during the 12/4-12/5 window of availability. If your school does not require the exam be completed during the regular school day, it is recommended that you plan for a quiet, uninterrupted time to complete the exam during the 12/4-12/5 window.

4. What is the final exam worth?

The final exam is worth 20% of your course average.

5. Are we allowed to exempt the final exam?

No, GaVS does not allow for exam exemptions. All students must take the final exam.

6. What is on the exam?

The exam is comprehensive. It will cover all modules from our course.

7. How should I study for the final exam?

Attend the Jigsaw final exam reviews. Go through every test and quiz you've taken this semester and hand write the question, the correct answer, and why the correct answer is correct for EVERY question you've missed. This will result in a review that is specifically tailored to your weaknesses. If you notice that you struggled with a certain concept, go back and watch the synchronous session that covered that concept or explore the resources in the Module's Course Resources Newsletter.
