Students at all educational institutions usually take exams or tests to show that they have enough knowledge to move to the next level. This is an important part of the curriculum. I do not think that students like exams, because they are emotional and full of stress. Nevertheless, I am sure that everyone should take part in the testing system. This encourages us to better study. If there are no exams, then there is no need to study. I know that some people are single-minded. They are ready to learn, because they just like it. However, this is rare. Most students prefer to write off instead of teaching. They do this mainly to get a certificate, but not knowledge. Currently, there are two types of exams: public and international. State examinations are held in each state secondary school. At the end of the 9th and 11th grades, all students take these exams in several compulsory and selective subjects. Russian language and mathematics are considered compulsory. At the same time, each student can choose two or three subjects to choose from. If I had to choose, I would prefer English and history. International exams are quite popular these days. Almost any teenager or adult can take part in these exams. These are internationally recognized exams that test your knowledge in various fields. I would like to take such an exam in English and get a certificate with good grades. Other professional areas of international exams include business, law, medicine, accounting, and so on. In conclusion, I would like to note one more advantage of the exams. They discipline people and teach them how to work and learn regularly.
