Today's exam finished, but there are still a few more exams are left. They finish next Friday.
Don't know why my intuition telling that the sentence should have been like this: Today's exam is finished, but there are still a few more left. They will finish on next Friday.

The first is my oversight: I didn't notice the duplication of 'are'. There are 2 natural choices:

..., but there are still a few more exams left
..., but a few more exams are still left

As for the 2nd sentence. Simple present ('they finish') is a common future form for a near future schedule.

I completely agree to this Mister! Emotion: smile
Thanks Mister Micawber and Cavalier King. My question is if we can use the word "finish" as a verb in first sentence, why we can't use the same as a verb in other sentences.

(1) My exams finished just yesterday. (This is right)
(2) Today's exam finished. Why this is wrong?
(3) Exams finish on Friday. Why this is wrong?

Those are not wrong (though #2 could use a bit more context). Who said they were?
Thanks Mister Micawber. Now it's clear.

As you changed my sentence from "today's exam finished" to "today's exam is finished", I assumed use of the word as a verb was wrong.

No. I was just improving it a bit to the more usual, sorry.
