I always hated these super hard exams because it tests your ability to pass exams and not your actual ability in the subject. This is especially prevalent when comparing a non subjective subject like mathematics and say English.
I concede that if you know your subject you should be able to pass the exam , but that top 5%-10% that these Universities are looking for don't always think and articulate their knowledge like everyone else.
A student that loves the right or wrong aspect of mathematics and argued incessantly with every lecturer that when a question asks, "in your opinion..bla,bla, bla" that my answer can never be wrong, ever!
Paris - because the amount of money spent on her education makes it hard for me to believe shes that moronically stupid.
