Social media activist and politician, Reno Omokri has advised students who see themselves as total failures because they failed an exam.
According to Reno, examination is not the best test for intelligence, and should not be used as a yardstick for success.
“Exams are a test of memory, not a test of intelligence. Read to pass your exam but don’t think you are unintelligent because you fail. Dont think you are better than those who failed. You might actually end up working for a classmate who failed$.
After sharing the tweet, some of his followers on Twitter shared other opinions on the subject.
A man identified as Austin said exams are both a test of memory and of intelligence, as some examination questions are set to determine once analytical capacity.
“I think exam is a test of both. If exams were just about memory, there wouldnt be that critical and analytical dimensions in exams. Sometimes, an examiner is testing your ability to be analytical or critical on an issue than your ability to just memorize”.
