BLACKWOOD – English 101 and English 102 finals are coming April 14 to April 22 on all three Camden County College campuses: Blackwood, Cherry Hill and Camden.
To enroll for the final you must have taken an English 101 or English 102 course in CCC within the past year. You can register online at www2.camdencc.edu and follow the instructions provided. You will need your student ID number.
Freshman Kalyn West says, “When I took the English 101 final last semester I saw so many students who were late to take the exam and weren’t allowed to enter the room, so make sure you’re at your testing site about 15 minutes in advance.” She then followed by saying, “Coming in earlier gives you time to get settled and relax before the exam.”
If you are enrolling for the English 101 final there are sample essays provided to help you prepare for the exam. To view these samples go to https://www2.camdencc.edu/ENG-101.aspx and click the hyperlink that says ‘click here for sample topics and essays’. You are permitted to bring a dictionary and/or a thesaurus. You will be given 90 minutes to write your essay in which the computer will stop you when your time is up.
If you are enrolling for the English 102 exam there are two articles that should be read ahead of time. To read the articles go to http://faculty.camdencc.edu/aspatola/eng2exam/ and read the arguments before going to your registered time. The link provided gives you the two topics that you can choose from and prepares you for the test. However, you cannot bring in a prewritten copy of your essay. For this test you are not allowed to bring in a thesaurus or dictionary. You will be allotted two hours to write your argumentative essay, the computer will stop you when your time is up.
Sophomore Brenda Algo advises, “Don’t rush yourself and don’t forget to proofread. So long that you are doing good in your class you should do good on the exam, and if you fail you still have a year to retake it.”
Testing will take place April 14 to April 22 in increments of three hours on all three CCC campuses. For exact times visit https://www2.camdencc.edu/eregister/Default.aspx and select the link for your English course. You cannot enter the testing room without an ID and a copy of your registration confirmation, and all electronics are prohibited.
