Exams designed to provide this type of reality-check feedback really shouldn’t count for as much of the final mark as an exam designed to measure overall knowledge of the learning content. Consequently, learning strategies can benefit from providing exams with different weightings. A friend of mine, an Oxford-educated mathematician, had a smart strategy to succeed in university.
