Do you think standardized exams should be timed? There are people who know the material but cannot function under time pressure. What do you say?

It would help some, but others would simply become frustrated and give up.

I think removing the pressure of time in exams helps a great deal but I also understand why exams are a requirement for certain jobs.

1. To weed out the number of applicants.

2. To make money. Each test is probably over $100 by now.

3. To reduce employment competition.
