Is it fair to have so many exams?! Thinking about it as a teenager you have to study hard for SATS which is no prob right but that's enough, then you've got GCSE's, the you have the A Levels, then you have what ever you do at uni, it seems to go on and on! Does anyone feel like their life is full of exams and how well you do and then more exams?!

I reckon we should be given exams throughout the year - like every month or something. However, the exams should be kind of secret and disguised as normal classwork - no revision required, and based on knowledge aquired during the month. Then there wouldnt be the stress of revising; they should test us secretly.

When we leave school, work will be a 100 times more stressful. I see the exams as good preperation.

Yeah, I take your point! We are a very qualification based socoety in Britain, but there are worse systems. The German one is monster inflexible. You only do one set of exams but you can only take them once too, so if you flunk, you flunk for good.

Swings and roundabouts.....

I think that the exams should be done at different times for each subject, instead of about 20 all at once. That way there is less to revise for.
