Failure = An Unsure Future Pass = A Restricted Future Yes, they can assist teachers to part those who want to learn and those who don't. If you fail an exam, you are immediately looked down upon. No one wants to be considered foolish and everyone wants to succeed. Yes, if a student doesn't put in the work, how can they expect to pass?
The ones who fail feel stress because they know they will be left behind in society. Those who pass can feel stress because they're future must be of a ''respectable profession''. What if i don't want to be a Doctor, Teacher, Lawyer. What if i want to choose? It can be very taxing.
Failing is nothing to ashamed of and passing is nothing to be so ecstatic over in the long run. In years to come in, it truly does not matter. It is unnecessary to have one single piece of paper determine someone's life as a citizen of their nation. Teach me about First Aid, Easily Treatable Diseases, The value of Money itself, Taxes! Depending on my future profession I will never use Algebra. Mitochondria matters to a scientists not musicians.
