Why Exams Are Good

Because in the real world, it is useful to spit out facts and definitions.

Because in the real world, whenever we have to solve problems, we're shut in an isolated room for 3 hours, with a piece of paper in front of us nicely stating the problems we need to solve, some of which are problems with multiple-choice options.

Because in the real world, we don't have computers. Even though we have notebooks for school.

Because in the real world, we don't use google.

Because in the real world, no one will be there to help us, to give us ideas, to give us feedback.

Welcome to the real world.

That's mostly true. Remember, in the real world, no one's a veterinary, astronaut or firefighter. You're cubicle #7734, your boss dumps problems on you, and you have an hour or so to work them out. Red tape requires lots of spitting out of laws, facts and numbers, and if you just Google your ass out every time, someone is going to notice (your connection is monitored constantly).
