Social media activist and politician Reno Omokri has something for students who consider themselves to be a failure after failing an exam.
According to him, they are not, as examinations are not truly the best way to test for intelligence. He stated that exams are just means to test one’s memory and should not be used as a yardstick for success.

But it appears as if some of his followers on Twitter have other opinions on the subject. A man identified as Austin believes exams are both a test of memory and of intelligence, as some examination questions are set to determine once analytical capacity.
I think exam is a test of both. If exams were just about memory, there wouldnt be that critical and analytical dimensions in exams. Sometimes, an examiner is testing your ability to be analytical or critical on an issue than your ability to just memorize…
