Then it's a rather unfair test! Disregarding school, if you go to university, it's you decision to go there. You can decide freely on the subject you take. Then, you're required to take lessons, do home assignements, participate on tutorials, have practical work etc. to be allowed to apply for an examination. You fix the subjects of the examination with your professor. There is a time span of several weeks, so you can prepare yourself. The examination itself is required to have a minimum duration of 20 min and a maximum duration of 40 min. Usually, it lasts 30 min. Note that the professor, as he has lots of more experience than you, can always find some holes in your knowledge if an examination wouldn't have a time limit. If you didn't pass, you can repeat it up to two times. So to me, that seems to be a very fair procedure!Pe King wrote:If you truely had faith you would've realised that all this world is is a test.
Normally, you need four such examinations to get your intermediate diploma. Then, for diploma, you again need to do similar things on a higher niveau or on different subjects to be allowed to apply for the final examinations. And then, you need to do a diploma thesis. There are fixed rules for all that. If you feel you're treated unfair, you can complain to the professor or sue him or the university. Typically, there's a protocoll about the things you said during an examination.
Nobody enforces you to do all that. You want to do that, if you decide to go to the university.
But with life, it's much different: Nobody asked you if you want to be born. You can't decide on lots of aspects of your life, including the religion you grow up in, etc., and you can't sue god if you feel treated unfair. I don't want to be tested against my will and in that very unfair manner.
