do you believe the validity of entrance exmas in universities?

I guess in my own experience, the reluts in an entrance xamination is quite unreliable. Why? because during the process of the test, the examinees are really bored and have the tendency to just answer anything they like. Also, the tests are composed of hundreds and thousands of questions that makes you pissed off. Maybe the psychometricians can do something about it so that they can obtain better results. What can you say?

Of course these tests have been validated and have been verified by th schoool administrators and its really important in predicting the performance of the capability if the incoming college students. It would also measure the learnings from the hghschool years and its important that school have this kind of testing process.

I don't know that an exam shouls be the sole thing determining whether or not someone is qualified to go to college. It seems there could be better ways to assess someone and whether or not they are ready for the next level in their educations.
