Why is our future dictated by exam results?

Why is our future dictated by exam results?

Exam results dictate our future, they decide what job we have, if we go on to further education. We get tested at such a young age and our choices during our school years determine our future and at that age we can't even decide what we want for dinner without making choices that affect the rest of our life.

In some cases, they don't and I know that some people get bad exam results and still do really well but that is not the majority, just a few lucky people. 
Intelligence shouldn't be measured by scores and numbers on a page because it is more complex than that. 
It doesn't seem right that different people with different abilities are tested in the same way on the same topics. Some people can do exams well but others can't. The anxiety that comes from the pressure of exams is a lot and some people cannot cope with it. 

Do you think there should be other ways of getting exam results to suit individual needs or is that unfair?
