The Regents Exams are a set of mandatory tests that high school students in New York State are required to take in order to graduate. Teachers must plan their coursework according to these exams since being prepared for the tests determines their ability to graduate.
Q: What should students do to get ready for the state test?
A: We’ve been preparing all year, so we don’t really put focus on the test, but the day of, and the day before, rest, good breakfast, and just a review of your sixth grade skills. I don’t think anybody’s going to have a problem.
