    Hey temp! I just got back home from school after finishing my exams! I want to know your opinion on exams. Are they needed? Do you like them? Have you failed in any of them or do you have good grades in them?

    If you're in your teens, the one test you do not want to be sitting is a pregnancy test.

    I reckon it would be better to know early and do something about then.

    Back on topic. Exams are not the worst thing but I have never found them especially useful either -- so many people I have seen just learn things for the exam and forget most things afterwards. Similarly when exam technique is a thing that is not a great position.
    On the other hand I do not have many viable alternatives if there needs to be a lot of people taught and confirmed that things have sunk in (ish). I much prefer exams to coursework as well.

    Failed. A few over the years if I did not bother to revise/learn the test or gambled and lost on things in tests. Good grades. As long as the grades I got allowed me to continue to the next level if I was going there I never cared what I got and I would much rather learn something than get a good grade.

    I agree. :wacko: Would not be a fun experience.

    This sums up what I wish to say perfectly. Thanks, @FAST6191.
