Why I, Alexus Echols, Shouldn't Have To Take The Final

There are many reasons why a scholar such as myself should not have to take the final. However, for the sake of simplicity I will mention three. The first reason is that if I don’t have to take the final, you will not have to deal with me at 8:00 am on a Monday morning. So honestly you would be doing yourself a favor. The second reason is that I have been consistent in the class in terms of attendance and work. This A level work will translate into an A on a final so why waste the time (And let’s not forget my stellar performance on the midterm). The third, and final reason, is that final exams do not serve a purpose in terms of learning. As a student, I have learned what I am going to learn in the class and final exams are just a form of punishment at this point. If I do not know the information it is not like the professor and I can go back and see what I did wrong and improve, if it is bad it will just be a grade damaging to the outstanding work I have proven I can do.
