Do you think that these exams, IGCSE, SAT, Baccalaureat, CNT, CSE are suitable for students nowadays? Can you explain your position?

The IGSCE and Baccalaureate are both fine curriculums. From my knowledge the CSE is decent as well. Can't comment on the SAT (not American) and I'm not aware what the CNT is, for reasons you are probably not aware of the HSC.

Explaining my position would take a very long time. Suffice to say, certain exams are good given certain situations. Plus, the IGSCE and Baccalaureate (especially this one) have curriculums which I broadly support, as opposed to say, the HSC which I am taking in NSW (I'm from Australia) .

As to the broad matter of standardised testing, there's a time and place for it. The extent to which there's a time and place for it... maybe another day we can discuss that.

On a sidenote, there's an incredible no. of acronyms in this post.
