The Regents exams have now begun.
For those who take a foreign language and have completed the speaking portion of the examination, I hope you have done well. For many students including myself, most, if not all of our examinations, have previously been waived. Some have fallen behind in their courses as a result of remote learning and have had to make up extraordinary ground.
For those who haven’t taken one of these exams yet, they last 3 hours, although you may leave early if you finish early (after at least 1 hour and 30 mins have passed). You must bring your Madison ID to the building along with other standard testing materials, such as number 2 pencils and a pen. For those taking a math regent, graphing calculators, compasses, etc. should be brought.
Although the U.S. History & Government regent was canceled and waived for students due to the recall of its content, teachers are still giving finals to students to make up for the cancellation. You must pass your class in order to be waived, so please make sure to keep up with your grades.
The Math Regents exams consist of Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. These exams will take place on June 16, 21, and 22, respectively. Graphing calculators are necessary for these exams, and students should bring their own! For those who need a review, Madison is offering Intensive Math Tutoring for all. Check your emails and Operoo for updates and information. You can also speak to your math teacher or see Ms. Magdalena Moroz (Math AP) in the math department in Room 440.
The Science Regents exams include Living Environment, Chemistry, Earth Science, and Physics. Their dates are June 15, 16, 17, 23 respectively. To qualify for these exams, you need to have completed 27 labs and to have passed your science class. Make sure to check your lab record with your teacher and ask for any help you need to review the subject material.
The regents exams for LOTE (Language other than English) are on June 21. These exams are local, meaning that they are based on the languages that Madison offers: Spanish, Russian, Chinese, French and Italian. Study by practicing your listening and writing skills and reviewing archived LOTE exams.
Good luck to everyone on your exams. The last day of school is June 27th. The year is almost over, so let’s finish strong!
