The question of whether exams are a fair way to check student's knowledge will always be controversial. Although many people think that exams test students fairly, others disagree.
In my opinion, exams are not the fairest way of testing students. Firstly, the result of an exam depends on the test that a student has got. It means that a high achiever can fail if the test is too complicated and vise versa.
Secondly, students are usually stressed-out because of the exams. They can easily forget something, even though they have been preparing for a while. It means that exams do not always show indicative results.
However, not all people are ready to share my point of view. They claim that exams are fair because students are under control during the session. Moreover, they cannot look at their notes or ask for help. It is the best way to check their knowledge of a subject.
I cannot fully agree with the statement above. It is commonly known that students are cunning. They can cheat on the exams using their mobile phones or headphones. It makes the idea of a fair exam a figment. Nowadays, teenagers are modern, so we do not even know what they can make up as a new way to cheat, so exams are not fair. Not every student is brainy enough to cheat every time, but the results of cheaters will be better.
To sum up, I believe that there are many more ways of testing students because exams are not always the fairest ones.
