The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE) states that Ramses does not fit any of the Bible criteria, nor in fact, do any of the 19th Dynasty Pharaoh's. The reason some people assume that Ramses is the Pharaoh of the Exodus is because the Bible says that the children of Israel built the store cities of Pitham and Ramses. But this can.
The Bible says that the Israelites built Raamses, and since Ramesses the second, who began his rule around 1290 B.C., built a royal city named Pi-Ramesses, many just assume him to be the pharaoh of the Exodus.: But the Bible never specifically identifies the pharaoh of the Exodus by name, although it does tell us the exact date of the Exodus.

Then also he died at the right time of the year, in the spring, March 17.Exodus 7:11 Bible in Basic English (BBE) - Read this chapter 11 Then Pharaoh sent for the wise men and the wonder-workers, and they, the wonder-workers of Egypt, did the same with their secret arts.Pharaoh claimed that he didn’t know who the LORD was (Exodus 5:2). God promised to show Pharaoh who He was, but to do it in a way that would not please Pharaoh or Egypt. ii. God planned and did His work so that the Egyptians would see that He was the LORD.
