I'm searching about this topic and I'm reaching the conclusion that students usually fail exams due to a misunderstanding that started at primary school, what do you think?

I'd say that teaching today is both transfering knowledge and learning to answer exams.
And if you're lucky, you get a teacher who also teaches you how to think....
Thanks for all the comments. They help me a lot! I think teaching is a difficukt task and much more if students fail at comprehension. We noticed at university level they cannot fill in a simple questionnaire just due to lack of reading comprehension
Thanks for answering Cathering. I'm searching about this topic speciafically, Reading Comprehension as the cause. Can you add any more factors as regards this so as to polish my investigation? What is your opinion? I really appreciate your answer.
Other contributing factors can include not knowing how to study, not knowiing how to take tests, test anxiety, lack of adequate study environment, generalized stress, reading speed and lack of focus.
And that doesn't even get into things like ADHD.
