Hello.

What is the difference in meaning between these sentences?

- Mike was taking his test the week after.
- Mike was taking his test (the) next week.
- Mike was taking his test the following week.

Thanks.

Without 'the', #2 can only refer to a real future week; the other forms refer to a week which is in a future viewed from the past. With 'the', the meanings are the same.

does the following week after make sense?
