ENG 111 – English 111 Final Exam Information
The English 111 final exam is a two-hour essay given during the two-hour final exam period. You will be given one reading, usually excerpts of or full articles from the New York Times or another source, a few weeks before the end of the semester. Your instructor will go over this article in class and may make assignments based on this reading. On the day of the exam, you will be given a second reading on the same topic as the first reading, and you will be asked to write an essay that discusses the issue addressed in the two readings. Your essay must use excerpts from the two articles as well as your own ideas, and must present the information in standard essay form, containing an introduction, body paragraphs, and a conclusion. Your instructor will grade the exam and determine how much the final exam counts toward your final grade.
Unlike the English 01 and English 02 final exams, the English 111 final exam is graded only by your instructor. Therefore, it is possible, though unlikely, to fail the English 111 final exam but pass English 111.
