IT'S so wrong for teachers to be given the power to grade students on the teacher-awarded grades, personal preferences will come into play, liking or disliking a person will always come into play.

I regularly go as a patient as part of the final examination for student doctors.

I have had reasons to question the conclusions the examining doctors came to.

In one examination the lady doctor took exception to the lady student's blouse being "inappropriate". I thought the student very proficient but I imagine the examiner was biased by her outfit. In both cases a personal judgement could have effect their careers.
