• Exams are why they are studying

    Many students are studying becuase exams. If we don't have exams, why would we study? Also, we can know our real knowledge, and it is part of practice to not getting too nervous. Through exam, students know thier knowledge, and compare to other students and get cheered up. Many students will not have a chance to know where their knowledge is.

  • Exams are necessary

    EXAMS ARE NECESSARY BECAUSE ,exams are one of the basic tests which we can prove ourselves and by this we can test our knowledge level(i.E. Good or not).These are about written exams and when we come to oral exams these to improve our skills.That's why exams are necessary to us.

  • Examination judge the students how much they are capable

    Yes examination should be there because exams judge us. If examination will not there students will not worry about studies and teacher will not know how much they have understood. Students will not give attention towards the teacher's teaching
    therefore,exams should be compulsory it judge us how much we have understood and how much we are capable

  • Exams provide students with neccessary qualities in life

    Many of the students' important qualities in life are formed and built up through exams. Among these are hard work, patience, creativeness, leadership, sense of pride and so on. It is true that through exams, these qualities are formed and tested and thus helping students grow up, prove their abilities and overcome their weaknesses in order to be successful in life.

  • Yes, they motivate students to learn.

    Yes, exams are necessary for students, because without exams, students would not be as motivated to learn the material. There would also not be a way for institutions for higher education, or potential employers, to tell which students were willing to work that hardest. Exams motivate students to learn, knowing they will be evaluated.

  • Examinations are measuring device

    Today, every appliance we use now undergoes checking and comes for sale. Starting from a cell phone to airplaneevery product in a market undergoes checking. If these these tnings itself need checking then humans too need it. So in humans checking is done through examinations.We know the the capability and the skill of a student only through examinations.

  • Exams are very important

    Because through it we can know our knowledge.So many poeple say that the college students suicide due to exams,but I say that if thry study well why are they going to suicide,but when say this you can ask me that ''we can study well so only we try to suicide,but I say that use internet to study or ask doubt to the teacher who thought you or study with the help of any senior student

  • God created us to test us.

    In Islam, God created us for a purpose. He created us to give us a chance and pass a test, even though He knows what will happen in the future. So this exam, plus every other exam that we have to face in our lives, are necessary. So even students have to do this exam that God gave us and all the other exams that our teacher gives us.

  • They are important

    Students take many oral and written exams in the years of schooling. Pupils have

    to be evaluated by their teachers to see whether they make progress or not. Some people

    may argue that exams are not necessary so they should be abolished. However, they are

    essential because exams test students' skills and enable them to overcome their nerves.

    Many people may claim that examinations test a limited range of skills. They favour

    people, who have a good memory and techniques. They are theoretical and useless because

    students may forget the subjects, which have been learned, as time goes by. However,

    coursework and exams may test a greater range of skills. It may also be an efficient way to

    measure the knowledge.

    It has been argued that students may suffer from the consequences of stress and

    anxiety during exam preparation so they may show poor performance in exams. Exams may

    also lead to illnesses. However, many students may overcome their nerves so they may

    perform well.

    In conclusion, it is obvious that exams are necessary because they may measure

    people's abilities and how much they have learned. Some students may have an opportunity

    to overcome their nerves. They should be optimistic towards examinations.

  • Exams are necessary for students.

    Yes, yes, yes. I agree because, it gives us potential and more learnings. Exams can be a good challenge, to know how smart and good we are in listening, by recalling all the learnings that we learned. Exams are necessary because it will happen when we are at elementary, high school, college and even at work, because they need to know what you can do and what you can't do.

  • Education System is flawed

    Why are tuition fees for universities rising if the education system want people to study? We live in a society that doesn't allow abortion but looks down on teenage parents. Exams shouldn't decide your fate. They should change this "exam" concept, it's flawed.
    "Knowledge is power, and with great power comes great responsibility."

  • Standardized (D)evaluation Tests

    Modern pedagogy has taken a turn for standardized testing and has built a whole new educational standard as a result: teaching children proficient test taking. Standardization does not account for particular situations or interests but only create an environment where children are forced to study only to take a test and quickly forget the information that has now become trivialized and redundant.

    These exams do have the potential to be useful for keeping statistics on classroom efficiency but does not nearly act in educating but only to create a negative influence on pedagogy and to ruin educational value for students; conditioning them to cheat their way through life without even once having a taught sense of regard for knowledge.

    I would like to discuss educational standards and my perspective on how education has gone downhill, but I would be digressing from the title topic: "Are exams necessary for students?"

  • They make no difference.

    Having taken my share of exams I think everybody here will agree that the routine is always the same. You spend months learning in a classroom then spend upwards of a week studying like a stuttering preacher studies the bible. Then, after a month of summer, how much can you actually recall? Think about it. These tests are outdated, like much of the education system. I won't pretend to know the final solution to testing, but these exams are generally useless tools for honest education.

  • Exams should be replaced by other cognitive tests.

    Exams should be fun and exciting; but in today's times, exams are pills of frustration and stress. The concept of exams, today, is very restricted. Teachers should evaluate students in various forms such as personal projects, research, written tests, speaking, drama, and other exciting activities where the student feels challenged and desires to showcase his or her talent. Exams lead to comparison and discrimination. Self-evaluation tests should be conducted, wherein the student does not feel inferior and learns from his or her own mistakes and apply acquired knowledge in diverse forms. In this way, students can look forward to 'exams' and enjoy the teaching and learning experience. Such tests also support the mutual relationship amongst teachers, parents and of course, the students themselves.


  • No, I disagree

    They really don't measure on how much we actually know, they only measure how much we actually retain in our brain. Funny, that was an unintended, but back to the point, there are actually more ways of learning then just by rote memorization. Literally, by doing this, you create a robot that has no opinion; which means less of critical thinking and analysis. Sure there are ways you can test the testers critical thinking skills, but they may not think as the graders do. The graders just go by the book and tick off some points just because they don't have the same opinion. I feel, as a student myself in high school, I learn things, but after I take the test, all the material that I have just learned by taking that test, have just spilled out of my brain. There needs to be some way that we can accumulate and retain all this information, but this does not mean by hours of poring through textbooks to take a 100 question quiz for 1000 points. It is ridiculous. That is my opinion. Thank you for your time.

  • Exams are stressful

    They only test students memory sometimes and 3 hours must not change our enter life.They are always stressful no matter how much a student has prepared.It is this stress that ruin our perfomance.Also many talented and skillful students may not be better scorers in exams.So exams really does not test one's ability

  • Exams make Exams Necessary

    Exams are a self-propagating entity and are only necessary to keep exams alive. Most human learning throughout the history of homo sapiens has been done without exams. Exams, particularly standardized exams are a recent invention, mainly used because they simplify the administration of education.
    Exams cause learning to be directed toward "passing" exams. The exam becomes the reason for learning, rather than for the love of learning. (If you think that people wouldn't be motivated to learn without exams, then go down to your local bookstore on the weekend and ask how many people are going to take an exam on what they are learning - maybe a few).

    The fact that we use exams, causes us to need exams because our teaching is centered around it. Remove the exams, a new way to teaching will emerge. And I doubt that motivation levels could get much worse than they are now, but that's another argument.

  • Coming From a STUDENT

    Exams are not necessary! Frankly i should have got an A in amber of exams ; with the amount of revision i did,but no, i came out with B's and C's .The whole enviroment is completly stressful it is not only being tested on knowlegde but with in a time limit you must produce this knowledge

  • Exams Make Students Unhealthy.

    Exams can make students fall into a lot of stress, not getting into enough sleep, and not eating enough food. Many strict parents make their children behave like this, which can cause self-harm or may even cause the stressed students to commit suicide. It is impossible to blame anyone for these unwanted situations.

  • They do not help us succeed

    The only thing exams do is either quiz on what we remember, or they are standardized.
    Midterms and Finals not only quiz you on what you learned in class, but also can affect your GPA and class rank. This may upset some people, and may feel people are smarter than them.
    Standardized Tests only give the schools money, and waste our class times as we would have to adjust our usual schedule to take them in the morning, therefore shortening our classes.
