Grades are necessary to keep students on track.

In my school grades were a form of score amongst the students, and would generate competition (I was in a school primarily filled with kids who had Asian parents, so you know why :P). They're definitely useful, as in many school systems its too difficult to generate full reports for each student and at almost every University or College its entirely too difficult to read through every students application and recommendation letters (I would assume).

They're there because they give a generally solid look at the student's abilities in different disciplines (math, science, language, etc.).

Grades should not exist.
