At my school with a 3.25 grading curve everyone knows what they are talking about when it comes to the exam and spot the most important issues. The people with a C+ generally do know what they are talking about..they just don't write as good of an answer as others. And in no way does it reflect on their capabilities or abilities as a potential lawyer IMO.
More specifically, on an exam you can know and write down 99% of the material that is tested on. If everyone else in the class writes down 99.01% or higher, guess what? You get the lowest grade in the class, even though you only missed 1% of the material. Obviously this is an extreme instance, but it doesn't really lend itself to testing how much an individual actually knows about the law - it tests how much individuals know about the law, relative to other students in THAT class with THAT professor.
