Almost all students pay great attention on grades because those who get high scores are considered as winners. Hence, students are trying their best to get high grades. Some people argue that high scores stand for students’ ability. Some people believe that scores not equal to students’ ability to handle things. In my opinion, I think that grades have nothing to do with ability. Reasons are listed below.

几乎的学生都会把注意力放在分数上因为获得高分的学生会被认为是胜利者。因此,他们都尽力取得高分数。一些人认为高分代表学生的实际能力。一些人认为高分并不等同于学生处理事情的能力。就我看来,我认为分数与能力无关。原因如下:

First of all, grades can’t represent students’ ability to handle things. Most tests need students to recite things. Those who have good memory can get good scores from this kind of test. However, our society needs talents who have great skills in handling things which we can obtain by experience rather than getting good scores by testing. On this point, scores can’t prove students’ practical ability.

首先,分数不能代表学生处理事情的能力。许多的测试仅仅需要学生记住一些内容就可以了。那些又好记性的学生在这样的测试中获得高分。但是,社会需要的是那些能够通过经验锻炼自己处事能力的人才而不是通过测试获得高分的人。就此点来说,分数不能代表学生的实际能力。

Secondly, grades can be faked. It is a common phenomenon that many students will cheat in the exams. In order to get high scores, students will use every possible means to cheat in the exam. So, scores are not trustable.

其次,分数可以造假。学生在考试中作弊很常见。为了得到高分,学生会用各种方法作弊获得高分。因此,分数并不可靠。

In conclusion, scores stand for nothing related to students’ practical ability. Besides, we can’t believe grades because they could be faked.

总之,分数不能代表学生的实际能力。另外,由于分数可以造假,我们不能相信分数。
