If you know your stuff, all exams are easy. It's the Blood Test I keep failing!

We're just getting smarter

Either we're getting smarter or teachers are teaching to the test instead of a curiculum

I went to what is claimed and renowned to be the best high school in the state of alaska. when the legislature decided to have a qualifying exam for recieving a HS diploma, the school started teaching exactly what they knew would be on the exam (my sophomore year we had to take the pilot to the exam), which I thought was pretty weak.

I find that nearly everyone in America is a 'straight A student' I suggest that the exams are either extremely easy, or Americans have an excellent schooling system.

SATs here are getting easier. I would explain why I think that, but hardly any of you will know what they are, so I won't.

The only exams I have to worry about anymore are doctor exams... and they are never easy for me!! I hate doctor 'visits'

yeah, standard grades here are getting easier as well,... it is taken as fact here that it is. i wondered if it was the same everywhere else- and its not just that ppl are getting smarter cos i tried the past papers (maybe cos its cos of the change in course content ) but they are much harder
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/13/02 - 3:38:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think so yes. I finished my Science exam in 40 minutes and I got 80% on it.

I've had exams so hard my ass hurt afterwards
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 9/27/02 - 3:48:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
NO i just got my ass kicked badly today by an Organic Chemistry Lab. Ugh, the teacher teaches, and reviews one thing, and then tests over a different thing which he spent little to no time on.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 9/27/02 - 4:01:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
No they aren't.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/5/02 - 11:12:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think they are getting more difficult than years ago since the younger generation have the text accelerated
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/5/02 - 11:13:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, they should be made very very hard as i dont need to do them anymore
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/11/07 - 10:47:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think it would depend on the subject matter...
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/11/07 - 10:47:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Stupid Evolution test...
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 3/31/07 - 12:58:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
it depends on what subject youre testing in and who your instructor is...if you study and retain what youre studying then it shouldnt be hard.

i dont think that all teachers are collaborating via mass e-mail to make exams harder on students.

I think this is the case.

And my opinion is that, with my experience compared to my parents, it's a crap load harder.

YES, they are DUMMYING DOWN SCHOOL SYSTEMS LIKE CRAZY. i go to a PRIVATE school, and they have been taking away homework because IDIOTS whose parents complain to the school about 'their little angels getting too much homework' when the little BRATS have IQ's of 30 and should be in a school for the mentally challenged. it PISSES ME OFF.

no because i just started uni...uni sucks
14 yrs ago - Sunday 5/13/07 - 12:53:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
God no.
At least not in my Algebra class. The teacher gave us the exam as a TEST. Then made up his own exam to give to us that was 100x harder.

Maybe not easier. But I was reading about grade inflation, where more kids are getting As because they grade easier.

I thought SATs were the same in Europe as in the U.S. In that case, I'm fairly certain they're getting "harder," especially with the adjusted reading/math sections and the new writing section.

[Not that it matters any more, since I know where I'm going to college, finally. Yes!]
