I will say exams are good way to provide a standard to understand how well do you understand. However, the current examinations in schools only cover a narrow aspect ot learning (e.g. Language, Math, Science...) and these determines what secondary school/college and universitt will they enter. There are so much more stuff ( communications, leadership, business...) that a person learns, yet there is no system to capture them. The whole system will need to incorporate more than just academic examinations as criteria for selection, otherwise the old mindset will still remain.
