If regents exams can be easy to pass, why are classes so stressful?
Easier Credits Edit
The Board of Education should come up with an easier way to make up credits. Regents should count as credits.
Test Overall Knowledge of Class Edit
Regents should cover the most important ideas taught in class. If a regents exam is passed, the class must be passed. Regents test your knowledge about a certain topic taught. If you know enough to pass a regents exam then you must know enough to pass the class you learned from.
Just because you pass the regents exam, doesn't mean you pass the class. Your grade -pass or fail- depends on your teacher. They don't just grade you on your knowledge about the class, they grade you on your conduct, attendance, homework, classwork and participation. They also observe how you interact with your environment.
