'i'm head and shoulders above the rest?' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'everyone enters exam' is the wordplay.
'everyone' becomes 'all' (I've seen this before).
'enters' indicates putting letters inside.
'exam' becomes 'test' ('test' can be a synonym of 'exam').
'all' inserted into 'test' is 'TALLEST'.

(Other definitions for tallest that I've seen before include "Most incredible" , "Of greatest height" , "highest standing" , "Most lofty" , "most unlikely" .)
