Oral Finals

In my four years as an undergrad I never had an oral final until this past summer at the Institute for Priestly Formation in Omaha, NE. It was not very difficult nor intimidating because I had a religious sister from the Intercessors of the Lamb giving my test. I did the usual studying and got through it. Yesterday, I had my first 'big' oral final, for Church history. It went well. In about an hour I've got my second oral final for my Intro to Sacraments and Worship class. My final for Church history was difficult in the sense that we did not have any test questions to prepare for; rather we had a list of terms, events, and people to study. One can anticipate some questions and then there are the ones that make you think back to the first few weeks of class in September. The best thing about oral finals is that they are over in about half an hour and you don't have to write anything. I do have one written final tomorrow, though, which may prove to be difficult, but I can live with that.
