Are exams necessary?

There is often a huge debate as to if exams really are necessary. They can put a lot of pressure on students who may already be struggling with other aspects of life and if you are someone that struggles in exam conditions you may find that you do not get the grades you need to even though you perform well in the classroom. The reason exams are so popular is that it offers an easy way to compare one student again another and one educational setting against another. Often exams that are taken when the student is younger, are more used to see how the school or nursery is performing rather than the individual child.

It is important that students do not get too worried about exams and although they do need to try their best and they can have an impact on choices that are available to them in the future, there is often the possibility to retake them if needs be. When studying for an exam, revisions is vital and can make a huge difference to how successful you are. Take the time to plan your revision and to give yourself adequate breaks in between and a chance to recharge your batteries.
