EXAMS....

Exams, why do we have them? It’s just another thing about marks! Marks are stupid... they're just there... It doesn't tell you how smart a person is; it’s just a number. Numbers don't define intelligence. You could be the smartest person in the world and have a bad day, getting a low mark. It’s just so stressful. Why can’t the schools understand that? The teachers won’t even let anyone redo them either. If you do bad you do bad, the mark haunts you. If you do badly now, it’s likely to follow you, new schools, possible jobs, etc.
Exams don’t really mean anything. They are a means to an end. The government like statistics and like to be able to tell the rest of the population: ‘look 70% of students across the land have achieved A’s to C. That’s a 10% increase on last year! YAY! Go us, look how well we’re doing- teaching your kids very few life skills but teaching them how to effectively pass an exam! YAY!’ (Statistics and actual comment completely made up but something completely feasible as to what appears during exam results time). As a result, it means that tests need to be done to give the government some way of measuring the school system.
An Exam is a term for STRESSING ALL THE STUDENTS OUT OVER A FEW SHEETS OF PAPER!!
