Ranked: The majors with the toughest finals week in America
Strap yourself in
Engineering, Information Technology and Medicine majors are going to have the worst time during finals week this semester, according to a new study.
A survey of over 2500 self-reporting students reveals the majors with the most difficult finals week – if you're doing STEM, get ready for an awful time.
We polled students about how stressed they currently feel about finals, their GPA last semester, how many hours they studied last finals week, if students are worried about failing this semester, if they have ever failed an exam, and how much caffeine and study drugs they are ingesting to make an index of the hardest finals weeks in America.
The Tab's data analyst Matt Pencer sifted through thousands of responses to construct this weighted average, which appears below – check out where your major ranks.
