    Question exams???

    * How many exams will you have?

    (Is this sentence asking the number of subjects/tests are you going to take in one examination period?)

    Or is there a more accurate one?

    How many tests are you going to take?
    How many subjects....?


    * My friend asked me this thinking of the question to be an inquiry about the number or examination periods in one school year. What do you think?

    How many subjects....? This is not necessarily the same as 'how many (tests)(exams)....?'. You could have 2 tests in the same subject.

    Of course 'exams' and 'examination periods' are not the same.
