I think exams should be after break. Most, if not all, students have very little motivation right now and are impatiently waiting for break. Personally, I’m just counting the days until break instead of focusing on what’s important: my grades and exams. Having exams after break is also better because it doesn’t mess up the school schedule. If we have exams before break, it adds two weeks onto the second semester. This means the final exams would be harder and longer, as we would be adding two weeks of information onto the exams. Exams before break also force students to jump into the new semester right away. Usually, we have a couple of extra weeks to save our grades before midterms but this year, we go straight into a new semester with new projects and homework right after break.
