Twitter Poll: Are you ready for your finals?

For 24 hours, a Twitter poll asked students if they feel ready for their final exams this week.

As part of Kansas State’s COVID-19 plan, students did not return for in-person instruction after Thanksgiving break, but instead are attending dead week and finals week online. Finals, which started Monday, continue through the week for courses with exams.

Of the 71 respondents, 39.4 percent said “it’s a struggle.” About 24 percent said they’ll be “fine” this week. An additional 11.3 percent expressed solid confidence, saying they’ve “got it on lock.”

The remaining participants — 25.4 percent — said they don’t have finals at all.
