We really hate exams. We don’t understand the purpose of exams. Why don’t those guys believe that we relish knowledge. So testing us for that is an assault on our pride.
Exams test for knowledge. But what are they exactly testing for: generalizations or facts. I believe memorizing facts is waste of resources and time. So the exams should not test particular knowledge, rather it should be a test of whether a person is sufficiently intelligent to generalize the knowledge. I believe exams should employ some practical means to achieve this. Give us a project and let us work on that. But please don’t assign grades on the projects. We are the best judges of our work and know its worth.
Appeal: Ban the exams
On Behalf of all people like me,
