What is a test for...?

In second grade (or 2.7 grade to be exact) I took the CAT5 test.

Why am I mentioning this now? Because in that test I scored over two grades above my level on almost every subject and on serveral of them I scored in the 12+ grade level. Now my question today is, why didn't anyone see this and do something about it? Like bump me up several grade levels. Why are these tests only used to determine if someone should be held back and not also pushed forward?

There lies a fundamental problem with our school system today. C may be an "average" and passing grade, but A doesn't get you any closer to the next grade than a C does. Why? That kind of brings me to my outlook of "why try"
