semester fails to make any allowance for such a respite.
However conscientious and able a student may be, he cannot be expected to do himself justice in an examination which covers three to four months of work, without a fairly thorough review of that work before he is subjected to the test. Yet this semester not a few students will be asked to appear for one or two or even three examinations with practically no time for preparation, unless they attempt to carry on a review during the days and nights when they are expected to devote their attentions to daily class assignments.
Faculty members as well as students realize the injustice of asking a man to write an examination with perhaps only one evening to spend entirely on that one subject, unpressed by regular class duties, and both have expressed their sentiments clearly in this regard. The students had no share in making the new arrangements. On the whole, they probably favor a change in the opening date of examinations; but despite this occurrence, University officials should not make such a change entirely at the students' expense.
To hold examinations without providing some period in which to prepare may not only set an undesirable precedent, but will work a decided injustice upon many undergraduates in the University. --The Michigan Daily.
