n my opinion, grading system main problem is that it causes other to consider someone's ability based on their grades. I don't think that one's view towards other's ability should depend on their grades. If my score in a subject is not good, it does not mean I can't do that subject at all. There is a lot of factor that influence grade, not merely our ability to understand the subject, and grading does not reflect all those influence well.

Lets say you are sick and you cannot concentrate to do a test. You got bad grade at that time. Does that mean you failed? Does that mean you do not understand the lesson given for that test? I don't think so. Grade simply does not fully reflect our actual condition towards certain subject.

Actually I feel that grade exist in this world because there is no way for a teacher or anybody to recognize their student, or other people, one by one. If you are a HRD manager in a company and are responsible for employee recuitment, are you able to meet each and every candidates and then talk to everyone of them, see what they can do, dig into their personality one by one and then decide whether he/she should be accepted for the job in your company? Of course not. There must be a generalization of every people's ability so that you can quickly decide whether someone fit to do something or not. This generalization is the grades.

So in conclusion: grades inaccurately describe a person's ability - it is a generalization. But in this world, there is no way for you to know one's ability without generalization, so here it is - grades.
