Are exams best way to decide who are the best students in a school?

  • Exams Gauge Student Performance

    In today's world, exams truly are the best way to decide which students excel above the rest in schools. Other, more sophisticated methods might be available, but exams are simple and cost-effective. Virtually all students are used to taking exams, and they know that such tests judge their performance in an objective manner.

  • I think that exams are the best way to decide who the best students in schools are.



    I think that exams are the best way to decide who the best
    students in schools are. Although
    standardized tests don’t necessarily truly measure knowledge and ability in the
    real world, they are the best option that we currently have available. We must have some method to determine who is
    average and who is above average.


  • They show how much you know

    They evaluate how much you have learnt throughout the academic year.They give you an idea of what topics you improve on.If there were no exams how would you know who have more knowledgeable.
    How would you get medals and trophys. If tere are exams taken we will try to be competative,otherwise we would not learn anything taught at school. So exams are really the best way to decide the best students

  • Must Be Some Standard

    If there are no exams, what is the point of having a school in the first place? There must be some standard by which to judge performance of pupils in school. It comes down to exams and then grades. Otherwise, how is there a way to tell which students succeed? It may seem unfair, but there must be some testing mechanism to tell how pupils do in school.

  • Some students are not good exam takers

    No. I do not believe that exams are the best way to decide who are the best students in a school. The complete year and the accompanying grades should be taken into account when choosing the best students. During the exam one student may have been having a bad day and did not do well. When given another test on another day he or she may do extremely well. Exams are hit or miss so they should not be used to choose the best students.

  • No they aren't

    I definitely do not think that tests are the best way to decide which students are the best. Some people are bad test takers and that does not mean they are dumb at all. There are many factors that would help determine which students are the best in the school. Exams are one way, but should not be the only way.

  • Exams are not the best way to decide who are the best students in a school.

    Exams are not the best way to decide who are the best students in a school. There are some of the best students out there that do not do well on exams. I think to know what students are the best you have to take into consideration the exams but other things as well.

  • Exams Are Not Best Way to Determine Best Students

    No, exams are not the best way to determine the best students in schools. There are many ways in which intelligence manifests, and exams offer only one way of testing for intelligence. Other types of performance must be considered, as many students are simply not very good at tests and exams.

  • Exams should be abolished in favor of another form of assessment.

    Exams encourage the students to simply remember the content that will be on the test. When a teacher says "This will not be on the test." the students believe they don't need to know what the teacher is saying. School today is not about education. Its about a grade. Whos going to get an A? Exams apply too much pressure and anxiety on a student.

  • Not fully bad.

    It can't test all of our skills.I am not saying that the exams are fully bad.They are good but only annual exam no more than that.Even the good and brillant students get nervous during the exams because of the subjects,some times because of teachers.There are also a lot of ways to test students skills.But i think that there is an annual exam is needed.
