Every year thousands of students take important exams which can decide their future. For example, students have to pass exams with excellent grades in order to get a place in a uni¬versity. However, are exams the ultimate solution to judge one's knowledge?
On the one hand, exams seem fair because the questions are the same for all students. Besides, the exams are marked accord¬ing to a strict scheme and usually by more than one examiner. Furthermore, students do exams at the same time and under the same conditions. If the examination procedure is strict, students have no opportunity to cheat, that is why the results of exams are quite objective.
On the other hand, exams do not truly reflect the knowledge students hold. Despite some students deserving to pass, they might be so nervous on the big day that they make a mess of the exam. In addition, there may be other reasons, such as illness, which affect a student's performance in an exam. Moreover, ex¬ams do not judge your intelligence. What is really evaluated is your self-confidence and your short term memory.
To sum up, exams are not the ideal way of testing students therefore the idea of assessing students' work over a longer period is becoming more popular. In my opinion, the best system would be a mixture of exams and course work, in which students will be able to show their creative abilities.
