SUMMER SESSION: Midterm and Final Exams
Please refer to the Summer Session Schedule for midterm and final exam dates, times and locations.  Students can also see this information in their course homepage.  Students taking TWO courses must plan carefully!  If both exams are scheduled at the same time on the first exam date (7/17 or 8/6), they must take one of those exams on the makeup date (7/20 or 8/7).  We are not staffed to give exams at any time other than the posted schedule.  Students should not show up at Battlefield HS and expect to take both exams on the same day unless already scheduled for one in the first session and the other in the second session. Plan transportation accordingly 
SOLs for Summer Session

SOL Exam dates and times are noted below.  There are no make-ups for non-writing exams.  Please plan now to attend your SOL exam on the date posted.  All SOL exams are proctored at Battlefield HS and students must have a PHOTO ID.  If you have previously passed the SOL for your course, you cannot retake it, you must take the final exam.  If a student passes the SOL exam DURING THE SESSION, they will receive an exemption on their final exam, but must still complete the work during the final week of the course.  All exams start promptly at 2:00 and lab locations will be posted in the lobby at Battlefield HS:

  • Eng. 11 Writing MC: 7/14
