Who knew that a set of exams could cause so many problems for an individual? GCSES appear to be something that every child at secondary school is fearful of. Sending anxieties through the roof and depression is on the rise through majority of teenagers. Teachers depict the exams to be a life or death situation. However, majority of people say that ‘you do not need your GCSEs for a job’. So why is it that us, students, have to go through all this pressure for something that we do not need. It doesn’t do justice for those individuals who aren’t academically minded... those who struggle to remember things. It is merely a memory test and unfortunately some teenagers struggle to remember the large capacity of content. GCSEs have many negatives that outweigh the positives. So what is making us do such difficult exams? Removing these very complicated examinations, will conclude to less mental health cases and better attendance at school. As well as, making a 16 year old’s life less stressful before becoming an adult.
