The points system in this country is disgusting though, like students last year making their points target on Results day only to find the following Monday that their course has increased by 40+ points in some colleges. How are students meant to even begin to prepare for this? "Oh I need 400 points in my course but I'll probably need to aim towards 500 JUST INCASE the points go up", like its an outrage, students have no sense of security gearing towards exams!
Students go into exams and do their best, I certainly hope nobody thinks "oh I only need a D for my course so I'll answer half the questions and leave after an hour".
There can only be so many places in a course, and while the points system isn't ideal and could be improved in several ways, the fact of the matter is that not everyone can get their first choice.
