I absolutely agree with the notion that the time limit should be virtually removed from examinations, or at least the time allowed should be extended to about 1.5 times the amount of time that the teachers deem as being appropriate for an average person complete the exam. In such a case, those who:
1. Are unlucky enough to have to use the bathroom during the exam,
2. Are slow at writing,
3. Prefer to write their responses with pride and quality in the absence of pressure instead of rushing through the exam and treating it as a race against the clock,
will not be disadvantaged. However, in exchange for that, the amount of content each student are allowed to write must be limited to prevent causing too much chaos for the markers. For example, a limit should be placed on how many pages one is allowed to write for each section in an English exam. By limiting how much space is allowed rather than the time allowed, students would definitely be able to produce responses to questions with much higher quality, as time limits create stress, which hinders the quality of work. Under this system, people should also be allowed to leave the exam centre at any time after they are finished.
Having each exam allowing students an amount of time which is just slightly more than what the teachers deem as an appropriate amount of time to complete the exam is ridiculous, because being unlucky enough to have to use the bathroom just once during the exam could easily lead to the student failing to complete the exam.
