The blank, white, unanswered paper stares as you, the clock ticks slowly until you could barely think, sweat streams down your face as you ponder if the answer is A,B,C or D. Tests. Exactly how are tests beneficial to one? Tests only determine if you know a “certain” material. Tests do not show what kind of person you are, your personality, or what you like or do not like. Many feel as if tests determine how smart an individual is. However, tests do not determine your potential of what you are capable of doing. As years and years pass by, hundreds of tests are thrown in recycling bins, with no remembrance of it. Will there be a difference between that A and that F? Tests are only temporarily, one’s own life does not depend on it. Even if you are not strong in that field or are not able to answer a question, one day you will be able to answer it. Tests do not determine your ability. Only you know what you are capable of doing. Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses. As long as you thrive and have determination, tests will become nothing at the ends.
