Smallsmileys150 is it Fair??

as it known 4 all the last high school year is the year the ur Grades in it taken to choose the collage or university ..... the higher grades u get the more chances u have....
the questions is.... dose schools treat and follow the same evaluation style???
the answer is [COLOR="rgb(139, 0, 0)"]no [/COLOR].... some schools r easy .. others r hard .. some teachers are good others put hard exams and have a bad style of treating students..
so r the students evaluated fairly ??

Ok then, you try creating a totally objective teaching style and exam paper.
Teachers have different teaching styles, students have different learning styles, it would be impossible to get every detail to match up to make it totally even for everybody.

I see what you are coming from Hasna...

But I have this question : Why do some people have everything just perfect, and they still fail?!

My point is that these factors might be affective at some points. Yet, they don't form a person's knowledge.

Default Re: is it Fair??

All teachers have different styles of teaching, and different students prefer different styles, you could never make a teaching style that is perfect for everyone.

In the USA, I believe the government and school system has tried to solve this by introducing the standardized tests (even if they are culturally biased). That adds a bit of objectivity because it does allow for comparisons to most other people in the nation. Also, the American system is easy enough that anyone who wants to try can get high grades fairly easily.

Of course it isn't fair! Haha!

This is because
1. Teachers are different
2. Students are different

You have students with different learning styles, and personalities, and schedules, and work ethic and you have teachers with different grading rules, teaching styles, curriculum, work load, schedules, personalities, ect ect.

It's impossible for everything to go right.

Nothing's really fair in the education system, whether it be funding, teacher salaries, test scores, minority dropouts, etc. In this case, the teachers' teaching styles contrast with your learning style; I have one teacher like that per year. I would do a lot of outside studying, and maybe study with a friend.

Good luck.

i believe u didnt get me right...
i ll give u an example ... in some schools in uae the have one main project for 4 different subjects and the mark goes for all ... while other schools still have a project for each subject.. that is simple the fault of school and supervisor ... the student in the first school are not pushed in time as the student in the second school ... same with the marks dividing .. we cannot solve the pb of that teachers have different level of teaching but we can control their exams

I get it, but there's nothing you can really do about it. It also depends on the curriculum of the school and exam boards and such. Your example of some schools in the Emirates which have 4 subjects being graded based on 1 assignment sounds sort of unorthodox though.
