There seems to be an increasing trend towards assessing students through exams rather than continual assessment. What are the advantages and disadvantages of exams as a form of assessment.

Dear John,   Thank you for writing the letter to me, I’m glad that you are considering joining a
college
or applying for a
job
. In your case, I think going to
college
would be more suitable, as education is very expensive these days and having a
college
degree does not guarantee a promising career.
Also
,
college
courses are very boring and don’t teach practical lessons.   If you get a
job
related to your interests, that will help you gain professional experience as well as earning money for living. Professional experience is priceless and will help you in your career. Why waste money on a degree when you can get more benefits from doing a
job
?   I think teaching jobs would be very interesting for you as I still remember teaching was your passion so you can apply for schools in your town. There are many schools near your home, so you have higher chances of getting a
job
easily.   I can’t wait to hear from you.   Your friend,   Ahmad
