Hear, hear. My little sister took this exam yesterday, and I helped her study - that is, cram. I won't deny she learned some important facts about the state and how it's run (she's not the type who keeps up with current affairs). But now that they've served their function, she'll most likely forget them in a week. Likewise with every other exam subject.
There is no greater insult to the intelligence, and no greater contradiction in terms, than perfunctory education.
