Hi

Could you check this essay for me?

Some people think that exams are a good way of assessing a student’s level. Other people believe that they put unnecessary pressure on young learners and tell us very little about their actual ability. Discuss both views and give your own opinion in 250-300 words.


Some people think that exams are a good way of assessing a student’s level. Other people believe that they put unnecessary pressure on young learners and tell us very little about their actual ability. Discuss both views and give your own opinion in 250-300 words.


Educational institutions and universities across the world conduct exams to assess learners’ understanding of the concepts taught. While some people believe that exams are effective in doing this, some others argue that they put the young learners under undue pressure.

The proponents of exams contend that exams require the learners to answer the questions of varying length and difficult level. Generally, the questions asked in the exams may range from simply defining a concept to applying a theory to solve a problem in real life. Reading the answers, the examiner is able to gauge the learners’ understanding of the concepts taught. For example, an answer requiring the illustration and explanation of the process of manufacturing cement, will tell the examiner the extent to which the learner has understood the process. Similarly, the answer to a question on the factors affecting climate change, will reveal the learner’s general knowledge and thinking ability.

On the other hand, the opponents of exams argue that instead of developing interest in learning and motivating them to achieve more, exams put the young learners under unnecessary pressure. They assert that exams do not allow flexibility in time. As everyone is required to finish the exam within the stipulated time, those whose pace of writing is much slower than the normal feel unduly stressed out. Further, rather than encouraging original thinking exams promote rote learning. As exams attach considerable importance to marks and grades, learners merely memorize the answers with the aim to score high grades. So, the contention that exams bring out the best in the learners is wrong.

In conclusion, though exams are considered to be effective way of assessing the learner’s knowledge by some people, the effectiveness is questionable if they do not promote independent thinking and creative thinking abilities.

You need to avoid so much repetition of the same word. Also, the essay frequently strays off topic. You need to focus on the subject in the instructions. For example, this topic is about exams being used to assessing the student's level, not the mastery of concepts.

For example, consider an entrance exam for a university. It is used to disqualify some students, and admit others. But this might not be the best way to make this decision because some very talented students may do poorly because they are very nervous in an exam room. These types of exams often test creative thinking and problem solving, not a memorized body of knowledge.

You should define what age group you are writing about. Primary school? High school? University? Exams are quite different among these different levels. It would help you to narrow the subject and focus better.

The word "learners" is quite odd, and very seldom used compared to the more natural word "student". It seems to be used primarily in pedagogical contexts, especially language learning.

Educational institutions and universities across the world conduct exams to assess students' learners’ understanding of the concepts taught. While some people believe that exams are effective in doing this, some others argue that they are counterproductive and only put the young learners under undue pressure on them. You need to add your opinion here. It is in the essay prompt. This will suffice as your thesis statement.

The proponents of exams contend that exams require the learners students to answer the questions of varying length and difficult level. (The content of exams is not under discussion. This is off-topic.) Generally, the questions asked in the exams may range from simply defining a concept to applying a theory to solve a problem in real life. Reading the answers, the examiner is able to gauge the students’ understanding of the concepts taught. For example, an answer requiring the illustration and explanation of the process of manufacturing cement, will tell the examiner the extent to which the learner has understood the process. Similarly, the answer to a question on the factors affecting climate change, will reveal the learner’s general knowledge and thinking ability.

On the other hand, the opponents of exams argue that instead of developing interest in learning and (That is not in the topic.) motivating them to achieve more, exams put the young learners under unnecessary pressure. They assert that exams do not allow flexibility in time. (That is off-topic.) As everyone is required to finish the exam within the stipulated time, those whose pace of writing is much slower than the normal feel unduly stressed out. Further, rather than encouraging original thinking exams promote rote learning. As exams attach considerable importance (That is not good. Parents attach importance to exams because they determine the ranking of the student in their class.) to marks and grades, (use one or the other, not both. One is American, the other British.) learners merely memorize the answers (Most of the time, the questions are not known in advance. How can they memorize answers if they don't know the questions?) with the aim to score high grades. So, the contention that exams bring out the best (Off topic. It is measuring the student's level, in comparison to some standard or the other students in the class.) in the learners is wrong.

In conclusion, though exams are considered to be effective way of assessing the learner’s knowledge (off-topic) by some people, the effectiveness is questionable if they do not promote independent thinking and creative thinking abilities. (Off topic.)

Some people think that exams are a good way of assessing a students’ level for admissions to universities. Other people believe that they put unnecessary pressure on young learners and tell us very little about their actual ability. Discuss both views and give your own opinion in 250-300 words.


Universities across the world conduct exams to assess students’ understanding for admission. While some people believe they are effective in doing this, some others argue that they are counterproductive and only put undue pressure on them. I believe that these exams, instead of assessing the students’ level, make them feel unnecessarily nervous.

The proponents assert that problem solving ability and creative thinking, which form the predominant part of entrance exams, best represent a student’s level. And, in some entrance exams, the students are required an essay on a given topic. Reviewing the essays, the examiners are able to determine student’s proficiency in the language. Further, these exams ensure uniformity; all students are required to answer the same set of questions and are allotted the same duration. Also, the organizers see to it that no student indulges in malpractice which when unchecked can give an unfair advantage to the undeserving ones.

On the other hand, the opponents contend that entrance exams instead of assessing the students’ level put them under severe pressure. They argue that when students take entrance exams they feel anxious thinking of how they are to meet the required standards. Further, large venues with several hundreds of students and constant vigil of the supervisors make them feel more and more nervous. So, it is obvious that even the talented students do not perform well. And, it is needless to mention the condition of the introverts and those who already exhibit claustrophobic tendencies. Also, these exams solely rely on the written information to determine the student’s level; they totally disregard the oral component, which will be highly effective in assessing the level of those who suffer from writing disabilities.

In conclusion, though entrance exams for admissions to universities are common all around the world, they do not succeed in assessing the students’ level as much as making them feel unduly stressed.

Universities across the world conduct exams to assess students’ background knowledge and critical thinking skills understanding for admission. While some people believe they are effective in doing this, some others argue that they are counterproductive and only put undue pressure on applicants. I believe that these exams, instead of assessing the students’ level, make them feel unnecessarily nervous.


Assessment exams are used in many education systems to place students in the appropriate learning environment. Universities and exclusive private schools use this technique in deciding if someone will be admitted or rejected. While some people believe these exams are effective, some others argue that they are counterproductive and only put undue pressure on applicants. I believe that these exams, instead of assessing the students’ actual abilities, make them feel nervous, so they perform poorly.

Also, these exams solely rely on the written information to determine the student’s level; they totally disregard the oral component, which will be highly effective in assessing the level of those who suffer from writing disabilities.

There are many other situations besides university. Your essay needs to be broadened.

If you apply to a language school, you will take an assessment exam to place you in a class of the appropriate level.

Special "gifted and talented" high schools require entrance exams and essays as well as exclusive, expensive private schools. The more exclusive the school, the higher the percentage of admission rejections.

Often, the availability of financial aid is based on test results. Students from poor families can get all their tuition and living expenses paid by scholarships if they demonstrate superior scholastic abilities. The success on a test can determine not only their future career, but also the future of their parents who will depend on them for support later in life.
