exit point ...

Climbout point is where you start to climb out of the plane. Exit point is the point above the ground you actually leave the airplane. But remember it takes a little time between the time you climb out to the time you exit, at least several seconds, depending on how you set up in the door and how many people you have in your group.

If the ground speed of the airplane is fast on jump run (light upper winds), there will be a good amount of distance between these two points.

If the ground speed of the airplane is slow on jump run (strong upper winds), there will be very little distance between these two points.

Some people use the term "spot" to mean the climbout point. Some use it to mean the exit point. Some others use it to mean the opening point. Generally, the spot is the exit point, but if you are not sure what your instructor or other skydiver intends, ask for clarity.
