Why I , Lauryn Sanders Shouldn't Have to Take the Final Exam?

The first reason why I shouldn’t have to take the final is I am always in class. I can count that I have missed two days of class the entire semester. Secondly, why I would I take a final and I have bad testing anxiety which means I’m probably not going to do as well as I should. Thirdly, I am a great student who strives for excellence and I wouldn’t want a music class to drop my 3.8 G.P.A  Lastly, who wants to stress out about taking at test a 8 A.M. Not to mention I helped the class with a informational video for their Ragtime posts while still helping my own group.
