Reader feedback: Unfair to repeat tests

Re: Trouble over tests, Volume 11, Number 16, April 25 - May 1, 2005

Some people think that our minister did a good job when he changed the school leaving examinations system. According to most students and teachers, though, this reform was handled very badly.

Really the "new" exams are the old exams in a new format. That some students were given papers with the correct answers was a huge mistake. In my opinion the minister should resign or be removed.

I disagree with repeating the exams. It is unfair for the students who studied hard and were not given the papers with the correct answers.
