Hello friends,

Education is a formal training of the mind to develop our understanding levels and Examination is an instrument to measure our understanding. Examination helps us to rectify our weak areas and indicate us to work upon them. In Most of us exam creates anxiety to score well, but creating anxiety is not the purpose of conducting exams. It only judges our understanding level. So fault does not lie in Examination, but in our understanding about exams. So there should be additional ingredients in our education system which can teach students to go for excellence, success will come under their fate immediately.

According to my point of view, yes examination kills education. Education is gaining knowledge and knowing everything in this world. But our education pattern is depend on mark basis. Mark is more important than learning new things. Students must not be blamed, education system must be blamed. They are given a syllabus and it is must be learnt. In stateboard system, every answer must be given what is given in the book. Students mug up their answers and write their exams. In our education system, practical knowlegde is very much less than theoritical knowledge. Students innovative ideas are buried inside their hearts because of the education system. Education system must be changed. Average student and dull student are more brilliant than topper. Everyone is excellent in their own ways. Never blame any student for not scoring the mark, their interest is different. They are very smart. So I request parents, teacher not scold students for not scoring enough marks. Thankyou.

Yes, the examination has a vital role to kill the education among the students. The students of this generation run after marks. 80% of the students don't have any knowledge about the subject as they mug up one night before the exam. Most of the parents pressurize their children fr getting good grades. Our education system compels the students to memorize as a result of which they lose deep interest in the subjects and become frustrated.

Every person should try to gather knowledge through out his life. Because finally our experience and knowledge going to help us in different field not the the marks that we get in different exams. But everyone have to pass in exams for higher studies to gra a job. So its too important. But our education system mostly decides a person's capaility on his memorizing power not on his knowledge or his creative mind. So I too think that todays examinations has killed education.

Not really it completely depends upon how to take them. There are different types of students categorised according to the priorities they study.

1. Some don't study at all.
2. Some study just for marks.
3. And some to have in-depth knowledge of the subject.

Students in the 1st group will anyway not study. While in the 2nd group will study only for marks. While students in the 3rd group will study irrespective of exams.

On one part where there are many suicide cases when students don't clear their exams. Exams and marks can b handled positively assuming they need a little improvement to raise their bar.

Also, parents have to handle such situations in more mature way. Ie they don't pressurise their respective wards for getting good grades.

Because at the end grades are not the only parameter to judge any student.

No, not at all, actually, what I think if there are no exams, there will be no evaluation of the performance and ultimately no scope or less scope for development. These are just the excuses that examination is killing the education because if someone is well understood with what he has studied, he will not face any difficulty in writing the same in exams and can also apply the same during practical and that will surely help in well performing along with well understanding. Better take interest in learning and should stop cursing EXAMS.

Exams are accountability and Accountability breeds responsibility. People should become responsible fo seek knowledge and understanding due to fear of exams. But at the same time, teachers and parents should also create an environment and culture of affirming the potential of students that they come to see in themselves, they should recognise the interest of students in particular subject and encourage them to go into deep.

According to my opinion, students must have the full independence to prove their talent. But unfortunately, our education system puts bound on that. Our education system has become the only measure of testing the memory power of students. Taking the example of two students one who is good at cramming and the one who is not, the one having more cramping power will get a good score but the other who is not good at cramming but has a lot of practical knowledge will be left behind and can't score well. So our examination system is not an effective way of testing our abilities but rather an indicator of our memory power.

I don't really think that 'Examinations' should be blamed for killing education. It is we who decide whether it'll be killing us or make our lives. Examinations are not meant to judge how much brains do we have or how brilliant and intelligent we are, but are meant to check how properly we have absorbed the syllabus included in our studies and how nicely we are able to put it down on paper while each student is under the pressure of what result their performance will bring to them.

I partially agree with the statement that examination system kills the education. In our society, three types of students are there.

1. People who don't like study.
2. People who love to study and having enthusiasm for study, they understand the subject in depth.
3. People who are cramming mugging without the feel of the subject and without understanding.

For the people type 1.

As you all know these people does not give their time to education if they are not forced. So by the fear of exam some what they get the knowledge by fear of exam.

For type 2 student, they love to study, exam makes people perform in pressure. They have very keen interest in education so they should be provided with the practical facility so that they explore the things.

For type 3 students, for these students exam is killing education because they are mugging without knowing the things, but by mugging, they get the marks and the purpose of education is not completed. For those type of students, the education system should be changed, it should be practical. So that mugging, cramming will not help this type of student.

According to my point of view, examination is important because without examination Students never studied their subject properly other not even without exams most of the students don't touch there books also so exam is very important.

Exams are not judged the student's talent but only because of exams no. Of student studied otherwise, they do not open the books.

So examination is very important to improve knowledge, and fear of exam all the student study properly.

I do not totally agree because examinations are one of the ways that help us to judge our knowledge. As per my concern, I think exams are compulsory till 5-6 class that help a student to judge themselves and even they get how they have to study but as in upcoming classes there should be more important to have a practical knowledge and at that stage exams are compulsory but the format should have been Changed. Exams are also held in some practical ways that definitely help our students to growth their knowledge and talent and it is one of the best steps for the development of our country.

Because as we all know in our country students have genius minds but the implementation is not properly done because of the faulty education system. If it improves then our unemployment issue also overcome at some extend.

Basically, today's education system forces the children to cram things and forget about the true knowledge. Whatever we study is based on the examination point of view and, therefore, we forget it just after the examinations. It has blocked the student's vision and they do not try to cross their boundaries; they keep themselves limited just to the school books and forget about understanding the concepts. But are these examinations fair? They don't judge our knowledge but our cramming powers. So definitely examinations are somewhat killing education.

So, if there is no examination then how we conduct that seats to students. Without examination students were no more to interested in studies.

Hello, friends.

According to my point of view, examination is important because without examination only very less number of students studied their subject properly other not even without exams most of the students don't touch the books.

Exams do not measure the talent of a student but only thing is that due to fear of exams most of the student studied and gain a little knowledge. From the exams, anyone can learn the time management, his/her learning capability. And we are not talking about only written exam there are many practical exams also in our school and college life where many thing we learn in the day of practical exam related to working of machines, software.

If exams would not there then no one interested to know how do they work what is the importance of this machine and software.

Many students has interest in a particular field they are not interested to understand the other subjects but for those students, other subjects also important because in future it will help them. Like a mechanical student learn biology then after that, they know the joint of bones and how a person can move their hands and legs so that they design mechanical operated hand and legs for the physically disable person.

Exams are not judged the people talent but only because of exams no. Of people studied otherwise, they do not open the books.

Exams is a fear but it is good for the people because whatever we write in exams after exam everyone forgot but something they learn from that exam what mistakes he/she did in the exam. From exams, you learn discipline and how to make concentration.

Hi friends, listen guys without exams nothing will prove. That how much the candidate or student have the knowledge or capabilities in themselves. According to me, examination isn't killed education. It depends on the particular student. Our education system wants to introduce the students with their facts that how much knowledge you have or what type of changes you need. If there are no exams in our whole academic year then no one will take the education perfectly. People avoid learning new things. Yeah, the point can consider that if you select the subject in which you haven't any interest. Then you never try to learn it & in your all the academic year you west your life's important time. And I agreed with the point also that the practical knowledge should be introduced in syllabus. So the students didn't get bored with theoretical knowledge. And try to understand the topic perfectly. That's all.

What is the meaning of an education where students only mug up the notes given by their subject teachers and after the examination tend to forget them?

Education is given to make us independent and for enhancing our knowledge. It is an important part of our lives nowadays. The examination has obviously killed education. Education is not only about learning something given in books. It is about discovering what all is present around us and inside us. Many of us have talents. Different skills. But we don't enhance them rather we choose to hide them just because we need marks and percentages for getting a highly paid and well-respected job. But what about our likes and hobbies which can take us a long way in that particular field? All we need is support from our parents for discovering what we really are capable of doing but sadly no one is there to support us. Education system today stops us from achieving our desired goals and examination kills the education we gain per year.

Exams must be conducted but only to recall whatever we have studied and the change should be made in education system that we have to face exams only for the fields where we are interested.

In my view, examination is not the only way to judge the talent of a person because some people study before the day of exam just because of fear that they have to score well and for that they just mug up whole concept and its like they vomit on exam paper and after few days they forget the whole concept. So the one exam paper scoring is not the way to judge the one's talent. The education system should be such that the students should learn the things with their interest in the field, not by force. There are many talented students in India who do not score well in exam but they have knowledge and talent but they cannot properly express it because of language problem or because of fear so the students who are scoring less we should give chance to them also to excel in their own interested field. Many students we have seen they suicide because of exam pressure They might be talented in other fields but due to pressure to score well in exam they leave their talent and by forcibly they focus their mind in exam in which they are not interested. Exam is necessary but we always cannot judge people based on their scores in exam. The job should not be given to a person only based on marks sheets but the person should be given job based on their talent and based on their interest for that. One marks sheet or examination sheet cannot change the human's talent inside them.

Hello, friends. I am Nabakumar Bhakat.

I have already studied your concept about the topic "EXAMINATION- HAS IT KILLED EDUCATION".

I will say that examination is very essential in our life. If we can't give the exam then how a student can identify himself and how can he understand who is he or she? and also which position will belong him or her? In the first job interview the interviewer first see how many persentage he got in his or her exam. So the examination is very necessary to a person who search a job? and its also essential to increase our thought.

In real if we consider a math exam if we do not score good marks than we are treated poorly in that subject but it is wrong in that exam we scored less marks due to lack of time or pressure to finish it on time and on the hand if we do that question at home we can slovenly them easily so exam is not a way of determining one's knowledge so only focus should be given to increasing knowledge and one's talent should determined by his interest in that field.

Consider the situation, your one semester has ended and there is no such an exam like thing. What will happen now? How can one evaluate what you have studied in that semester? There are 2 ways either he evaluate you on basis of your practical knowledge in that subject or he may ask you orally. Both of these ways are not effective. Because all subjects can not be implemented practically and orally. If you are going to be enrolled in any job, how will you show your skills at that time? Practically or orally!

Then, what about the rest 5 how will they express their talent if they have the only one way (examination) to express their talent. They could have talent in art, sports or any other activities.

Although at the time of placements only score cards don't matter, we should have knowledge in every field and should be good at aptitude, reasoning, vocabulary, general knowledge, current affairs and obviously practical knowledge of our field and we should be evaluated on this basis before placements but to evaluate us, the organisation have to conduct exam for that, so that they can sort the cream from the bulk of candidates. Thus, examinations haven't killed education. The examination is the key to evaluating ourself.

Hello guys,

My name is Keshav,

I read out everyone view, about the examination. I don't say that exams are not necessary for us. But guys think how will you show your talent to the world, by your mark sheet? Everyone scores good marks it's a common thing but everyone doesn't have the same talent. You can simply identify a red apple from a green apple's group. However, the exam doesn't show your talent. You can only check your knowledge through exams but you can't learn skills.

Well, I don't think so it has killed education. Taking my example I usually study before exams which are a great way to keep up our learnings and it acts as a revision in our mind. So examinations are a must in the education system. Apart from this examinations plays a crucial role in getting into the corporate world or entering into a new college. Examinations serve the foundation for the competition which makes person strive for achievement.

From my point of view, examination is the best way to test yourself. It shows your effort towards the field in which you are working. It also shows that the effort to get your goal and to compete others. Examination helps you in your impromisation. It also helps you in selection of your field. Examination should be conducted and I am fully agree with the examination pattern.

Education is that knowledge which a person remembers for years not for a night instead surprise exams test the knowledge. A paper should be on an objective basis that is questions should be expressed in a practical manner. For eg "there are two types of human activity one is economic other is non-economic, the question can be asked in two ways either they would simply ask the definition our provide a situation like "a woman \'b\' is cooking for her family" classify its any of the human activity. So examination should be held in the second way (where it tests the knowledge as well as skills).

I support examinations as it has many features which support the student life. You may say the examination creates a great pressure to the students but if he can't bare the simple examination pressure how can he bare his pressures in his professional life from his office, family, society. If we do not conduct exams a student never touches the book.

Indeed! Examinations have killed the very purpose of education. Examinations test the memory power of a student and not his talent/interest/depth of understanding in a subject. In India, most of the schools, the length of an answer in an exam determines whether the student is "brilliant" or a "dullard". Examinations focus on the quantity and not the quality, and that is where the system is faulty.

Exams are imperfect: A mere couple of questions cannot scale the extent of knowledge.

Yes, examinations have never been correct, the way it happens is not the correct format.

1. Children by heart all the answers, and the ones they remember and put on the paper good the marks.

2. Some even just read the important ones or most probable ones.

3. With this type of exams, most children become lone and focus on scoring rather than learning.

This whole system is no point and no use.

I real life, we do every time refer and make the decision, we need to be more collaborative, discussing and deciding.

It should be more of practical kind of, where give tasks in the group of students let then analyse refer books and solve the give problems. Which creates healthy environment, communication, proactive, learn from failed attempts and progress.

Scores should be based on behavior, learning ability, communication, proactiveness, problem-solving skills, sports, cultural activities in the whole year, and written tests.

Actually, I laughed reading an answer below I mean giving test is fun FUN FUN really?FUN for whom it's like a bomb which actually just came with a load of stress, unwanted study at unwanted times, super mental dusturber, etc. So how can the exam be fun? It may be fun for some of the people only some from some I mean 20 out of 150. See like if I'm good in science I have taken the basic education of English and maths which are required in science also a little bit about social science from the little bit I mean very basic so everyone would know what is it. After 8 years mean in 8th class (13 year old) I would like to study only English, maths and science but there is nothing like it I have to choose a course of stream in which either you like or not you have to study those other subjects too if failing in that subject will ruin your career and marks. So not everyone is good at everything everyone has talent but is lacking to show it cause of this dumb education system as I have earlier posted. Exams should be conducted only if the person is interested in that field of the subject exam.

I really don't think examinations have killed education.

Examinations are the best way to test a student's capabilities in presence of pressure and it prepares them for the future.

The only thing that tends me to go for this topic is that how students take examinations-.

- Students often get too much depressed about their exams.

- Usually, parents judge their child's capabilities on the basis of their exam results.

- The 3-hour examination and 100 marks question paper often inculcate the concept of rote learning in students.

I believe examinations are good for students but the fear students have created in their minds regarding examinations really saddens.

Examinations are the most fun way to test your capability building, not your knowledge. Friends think it practically how can you be asked to pen down the whole.

The thing you studied in a year in just 3 or 4 hours? And your judge yourself on the basis of that.

I think yes. Exams have killed education.We need to eradicate this exam system,not eradicate I mean like lowering it to very little. Why I am saying this is, I explain it to you with a story or say example, once there was an elephant, ant, monkey, fish and dog and they all have one owner. One day the owner was taking a test like exam or say he was seeing the abilities so he gathered all of his pets and said them to hand on a branch of tree without wasting any time monkey furiously hanged on the tree but others could not, now see like take the fish cannot climb the tree but is excellent in swimming in water, where as elephant is strong and massive, dogs have excellent loyalty and smelling sense and ant is hard working and can go into the ground holes due to its size. So everyone has its talent, and talent is like an ocean which cannot be tested through exams. Also not hatefully peoples who are supported to this that exams are not killing education they are either teachers or what can I say. Do you know that India has worst education system it doesn't even appear in top 40 lists of best education system countries!! Here are some of them top 20
-> Finland
-> South Korea
-> Hong Kong
-> Japan
-> Singapore
-> UK
-> Netherlands
-> New Zealand
-> Switzerland
-> Canada
-> Ireland
-> Denmark
-> Australia
-> Poland
-> Germany
-> Belgium
-> USA
-> Hungary
-> Slovakia
-> Russia

And Finland is winner why? let me tell you in Finland after the age of 7 or 8 there is no restriction to attendance, you can take as many holidays as you desire it's not mandatory or compulsory to attend school every day. It is not mandatory to appear in exams its your wish but you need to appear in an exam which happens in secondary higher school means 12 class. The school doesn't charge tuition fees,teachers there are more concerned to make the child understand the concept and learn and make use of that in real life. There is no grading or ranking in schools for student cause it creates a bad comparison between them like discrimination creating mental problems.there are plenty thing but can't be told it's too much

The examination hasn't killed the education because by this only we can know the student's memory, brain power, and ability but some people think that students are copying in examinations so how we check the student's ability. From my opinion, the teachers should give the student's the different projects by roll number wise in the classroom like assignments so by this, we can check their knowledge and education.

Yes, I think examination is no need to improve our knowledge because if one will score high mark by knowing to write without any grammatical mistake, another one doesn't have that much knowledge in language so he can't able to express in written form. By this, we can't conclude he is weak in education. In my point of view, he can have more knowledge than who have scored more in an examination, so, the examination will not decide our knowledge.

Thanking You.

Hi guys,

I think exams should not be the only criteria to judge a person talent may be he/she is good in another field. Students purely focus on mugging rather than learning because of this examination system and all of we know learning is more important than mugging. We should change our education system, where practical knowledge should get higher priority than theoretical knowledge. A little bit theoretical knowledge is also important.

Examinations have not killed education. But treating it as a sole metric of intelligence has. If viewed as an instrument of checking our progress in a subject, exams are necessary. We can see where we stand on a particular subject and improvise accordingly. The problem is rather than viewing it as an improvement tool, the education system has turned it into a competition to score the highest marks. Hence unhealthy practices like rote learning, cramming are encouraged, since the end goal of getting marks has become important than enjoying the process of learning. A paper of limited duration cannot correctly assess a person's knowledge on that subject. Hence instead of forcing students to replicate what they have stored in their memory boxes, examinations should adopt a method wherein the application skills are tested. These assessment tests should be continuous so that it gives everyone a fair chance and put last minute crammers at a disadvantage. In short, examinations are necessary, but it is the need of the hour to give it a complete makeover.

Hello friends,

According to me, Examination little bit spoiling our education system but we can't say it's killed our education. Suppose if you think it's not happening in our life then some student losses our education, I agree that exam should not be criteria to judge the ability of students. Some student can get good marks by mugging even if they don't know anything related to that subject but we can't be repealed that system it's affected education. And even that here no matter that how much secure a mark in examination due to this examination sometime whenever we are going to start a self-study of our examination subject we gain lots of knowledge about this particular subject.

The government has reduced the standard of education by giving compulsory pass category till eighth. Nowadays almost all exams are blue print oriented in that where there is a way to judge the ability of the children. All renowned scientists were not good scorers in their exams. Learning overnight and mere vomiting isn't education. Our system has to be modified to practical applications in day to day life, not in mere writing. We are almost dead in the field of education when compared to other nations. So there is nothing more to kill again. Men turned drunkards, women turned TV meds, of course, students educated ill literates. Hats off to our government.
