Pass/Fail system VS. Letter system
In my opinion, the letter grades system is the better. I see some advantage in the Pass/Fail system. For example, there is less stress on students, less pressure to try to get good grades. But, uh, personally I like the challenge of grades, of working to get grades. A grade of A+ or A is . . . it's something to aim for, like a goal. Uh, also, grades are a way to compare students, uh, to compare their performances. This can be important in ranking students and later, when students are . . . are looking out for jobs. For example, some businesses and, uh, some government agencies only hire people who are in the tops of their class if everyone had a Pass grade, they couldn't make good decisions about who to hire. So, all in all, I like the letter grades system.
