I think that the topic how to make testing less overwhelming is extremely important. When I see how stressed my children are while preparing for the tests, I feel so sorry for them. I know that they have to learn how to overcome difficulties and gain high aims but they are constantly overloaded and don`t have enough rest. I even decided to allow them getting best essay help online as I realize that their future career doesn`t depend on the results and the employers will not ask about it. All in all, personal characteristics are much more important nowadays and it is better to improve them.
