Examinations in English can be considered differently. As a well-known English proverb says, “So many man, so many minds”. What are such exams for me?
Being an inseparable part of any curriculum, exams are simple tests to get over or to fail.
It is true, but the role of the exams in English is much more significant.
English is a means of communication and interaction with other people, so a person who learns it, must know how to solve different communicative tasks not only in speaking, but also in listening, reading and writing.
Besides, communication is a personal process, so any person must be taught to work on once own. Exams are like necessary drills for doing that. An exams in English is the right means to get involved in communication. Besides, there is another side of the coin. Exams make it possible to observe the progress made.
For me, any activity should be motivated and exams in English give me such a chance. Working is class every day together with other students, you can not appreciate your self objectively. Some students consider themselves to be the most skilful while other underestimate themselves. Both may be wrong and only exams can be give definite gradation of the knowledge.
For me it is very important to know my rank among other students to set new goals. Exams make me treat my English studies as a plant and predictable activity. For example, if I fail listening, I’ll make an emphasis on developing necessary skills. I’ll try to listen more authentic speech over the radio of talking specialized courses.
Exams make me work extra on my own plan. I think it is important as it helps to develop such qualities as being persistent, hardworking, independent and all of kind.
Besides, exams make me realize my own responsibility. Taking exams, I can not rely on anybody but myself, so exams teach me decision and to get more disciplined. I think these qualities will help me to reach the tops in my future occupations.
Exams teach me to work regularly which is very important for studding English.
To sum up everything mentioned above, I can say that exams in English are inseparable part not only in the process of acquiring this subject, but also in up-bringing the right person.
