If someone was exceptionally good at a subject in school. However, when they sat their real exam they did bad and couldn’t resist it. Should they be given the chance it take it on in further education?

Anyone can answer. Just wondering peoples thoughts

Absolutely! I personally hate the exam system for that exact reason. It's such a bad representation of a person's knowledge in the given subject as like you said, someone could be exceptional at a subject but just deal terribly under exam conditions and pressure
