You are guilty of the same damn thing! The focus is on berating/consoling those who fail, rather than congratulating those who succeed!

Many students (assisted by parents and teachers) work hard to ensure their above-average results. Too little attention is paid to these people, in the rush so declare our exam system a failure.

Many marginalised students, again, assisted by teachers and parents, attain low scores, but the public is not aware of how much progress they actually made. Some of them are dyslexic, or dealing with other challenges, and have every right to be proud of their E, F or G, but this is overlooked.

There are other factors which are convemiently overlooked in the haste to declare our educational system a failure.
