题中出现了5种考试形式：taking exams, writing a paper, doing a presentation, making a video and completing projects .
Taking exams is an effective way to check whether we have mastered the knowledge, because the question paper basically covers all the key points students need to know. If I follow the teacher’s instructions, take notes in classes and review them, I can probably get a high score. Also, taking exams is more efficient. It only takes about 2 hours or so, compared with completing projects, which may cost a few weeks.Lastly, taking exams is fair to everyone. I mean, all students face the same tasks in the same time, and are evaluated by the same standards. So, this fair game ensures a competing atmosphere and encourages students to work hard to get good grades.
通过对比来凸显自己喜欢的考试形式。以 writing a paper为例，相对于taking exams，写论文可以让学生自由发表见解、培养自主思考能力等，作答示例如下：
I may enjoy some flexibility by writing a paper, because I can express my opinions about topics I feel interested in, and dig deeper in a specific area. I have to stay in the library to read reference books and surf online to collect materials. This way of learning not only expands my knowledge, but also stimulates my original thinking.Besides, The tense atmosphere in the exam room makes me feel really nervous, and even can’t concentrate on the questions. But writing papers allows me to sit in a quiet and peaceful environment that I feel comfortable with, so that I can work more effectively.
