I cannot personally believe any academic system can operate in this way so find it almost impossible to believe. Employers and graduate schools must know how to get past these kinds of figures but if it then becomes personal evaluations, then the system is even further corrupted. An examination system with all its deficiencies is still the fairest way to judge students.
