Final exam candidates are concerned: ‘I’m very scared’

Bo, who is in the final year of the gymnasium, thinks she has less chance of passing. More than four in ten young people think so too.

“I am very afraid of the exams,” she says. “We have had less lessons this year anyway. And during the period that exam classes were allowed to go to school, half of my lessons were still online. And online I was much more distracted.”

Yet there are also people who think it is easier to succeed this year. “Without these relaxations it would be a bit more difficult for me, then I would really be much more stressed”, says Armaan from 5 havo.

Armaan believes that a diploma is not worth less as a result of the relaxation. “There are two sides. You could also say that a diploma is more valuable because you had to learn while your whole family was at home and you couldn’t go to the library.”
