    Kobe Bryant retweet saves class from having to take final exam

    Damn, I wish Twitter was around when I was in school and didn’t study for a test.

    At schools around the nation, it is finals time as the school year winds down. That’s what was happening at an Indiana high school when senior William Pate sent Kobe Bryant this Tweet (hat tip Eric Freeman of Ball Don’t Lie, a guy who overstudied for every test he ever took).

    It’s awesome that Kobe did this. Although my guess is if his daughters try this he will laugh and tell them to sharpen their No. 2 pencils.

    I wish this trend existed when I was in high school.

    Someone is going to have to explain to me how getting out of taking a Final Exam is going to help this student in the long run.

    It probably won't it might've been one of those exams where it doesn't weight much on their final grade when their grades were probably decided before this. Is my guess. I'm sure after this this teacher won't make such a bet again.

    Any knowledge gained from the class should have been acquired without a 3 hour cram session before the exam.

    *Coming from a guy that LOVED taking tests in school, give me a multiple choice exam on a subject I've never covered and I'll pass.

    Just me being a parent.....but the tweet says:

    PLEASE IF YOU RETWEET THIS WE DONT HAVE TO TAKE THE FINAL PLEASE RT @kobebryant ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
    I guess it's possible that the entire class is getting an "A", so it's not really needed.....but it's a Final Exam. Didn't those usually count for something?

    I have an MA and graduated with honors from two fairly rigorous universities, I don't claim to be a genius or anything because of it, but I took a lot of final exams. I pretty much crammed for every one, aced it, and then forgot all the information probably 3 hours later (at least for humanities stuff, STEM always sticks with you more). If you want your kids to remember anything, make them write a final paper not take an exam.
