Some people think that exams can give the objective evaluation of students’ knowledge, whereas others do not agree with it. They compare exams with a generator of random numbers. One can know the subject well but get a bad mark and vice versa.

I think that exams are a good way of testing knowledge. First of all, one should prepare for exams and learn particular amount information to pass it. Second, exams have been run since time immemorial to rate students’ knowledge. The process itself is easy to organize, either you know the answer or you do not know it. You might also know a part of the answer and get an appropriate assessment.

At the same time there are people who say that exams can not fairly rate the level on knowledge. Students can be under the stress. They can feel horrible because of insomnia on the eve of exams. The subject can be deeper than the test covers.

In my opinion these people have a point. Physical and mental condition on the exam might play a serious role. However, exams are the easiest and most suitable way for schools and universities to check students.

In conclusion, I would like to say there will always be some flaws in the systems of evaluation of any knowledge. Nevertheless, I strongly believe that we should use what we have and focus more on improving our knowledge than on criticizing exams as a tool of checking students' knowledge.
