What happens if you fail a final exam in college?
If your school states that your final grade is based on the final exam only, then the answer is yes, you can fail if you fail the exam. If you earn a failing grade on the final and it is only worth 10% of your grade, you may only drop one letter grade or you might not drop an overall grade at all.
What should I do before 30 minutes of exam?
When it comes to tests, remember the mantra: it’s better to be extremely early than even a tad bit late. Generally, aim to get to your test center at least 30 minutes before your test so you’ll have time to check in, get seated, and calm your nerves!
