Most students are afraid of exams but exams are an important and necessary part of the learning process. Exams will often make you learn also, as a pending exam can be a great motivator to gain more knowledge and so can help you to look at the world in
new way. Assessments can allow us to test our understanding of a topic and so can help to guide our future learning. It is an important way that teachers can see the progress of students and their learning. Exams can also help students to figure out
their learning styles and where their strengths lie; this can help you to figure out what you may like to do when you leave school.
