Google Forms is a handy form application for teachers to create quizzes and analyze student performances. That said, students can create forms and share form links in the same way as teachers. That's unwanted for some schools.

As Google Forms is an essential application of G Suite for Education, it's impossible to disable Google Forms service for students.
