No, Examinations are needed. It checks whether we are aware of that particular subject. Also, it checks our ability to face problems. If there is no exam, then there will be no competition between students. Maybe they won't study at all.

Our education system gives more focus on theory rather than practical knowledge but if you say examination kills education than its wrong because the exam is a thing by which you come to know that where you are among others but yes it is a little bit wrong when you are judged by your theory results.

Education and Examinations should a base more on practical knowledge or real world knowledge rather than only focus on books. To make students practically involved in studies.

The examination deals with the only theory part. That's why most of the students are concentrate on the book part. That time the practical approach of the subject is missing by the students.

So, In the industry level practical point are useful so examination is really killed the education.

The examination is not better than practical.

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 Some student can get good marks by mugging even if they don't know anything related to that subject but we can't be repealed that system it's affected education.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.

Yes, I do think. From my view education clearly, means learning new things and having knowledge not mugging up due to the pressure of examination for getting good marks.

I think that examinations are important in some case.

If a student study everything in a practical way then he doesn't need to give exam and if he gives exam also then he will get nice marks.

He will win all the race in life.

But if he gave the exam by not understanding anything then he will fail in his life even though he would have secured highest marks in class.

So through examination one can't say who is intelligent.

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.

Hello friends,

The examination has not killed the education but they can saw you that what you have archiving or understood the before exam and now what you have learn more. Exams are testing you or judging you. Exam through you can judge yourself. And the exam is like your turning point if you clear the exam then you can reach your goal.

Hi, friends. I am Rohit.

It is true that education is killing the inspirations of those students who are interested in learning what they want to learn and the competitive exam system has crushed they're dreamed and make them a thing which only feeds those words written in those books without any desire to do so.

It is very bad as in the childhood of man (when he is in 11 or 12 standard) , time when he sees the world in his way this dirty system make him know what it wants them to copy in their heads and later on make most of them it's servant and apply for labour job instead and don't let him rise high on its own.

So, friends, it's important that in this ugly system that we emphasize on learning more & not on just copying things in your mind.

Like Albert Einstein never liked this system, he was against this and left the school and the competitive system and started living and learning in His own way and believed that no one is less than anyone but everyone is unique in his own way.

Hello, myself Aruneshkumar.

I am sure to agree that examination has killed education. In present days the students have a much lengthy syllabus. And every student wants to prove them in the exam. So they used to route learning. Cause of lengthy syllabus they can not cover it properly by practically.

So they have not practically experience in any sub. They make as bookworms.

In other countries like America, they give practical knowledge.

So, l believe, practically knowledge is more than theoretical knowledge.

Good morning to all, myself Pawan Mahwar.

I have read views of all my friend. Most of the views were on against the examination. My supporting points towards examination are:.

First of all, how will you determine the capability of the student? For this, you will have to take part in exams like oral examination, written examination & practical examination. If you are selected for an interview. For that interview, you have shown that you are capable for this job. If you take an interview, he asks what is the favourite subject. Then he asks only that things.

And examination takes only 7-10 day per semester. It doesn't mean that you don't have time for your creativity, your sports. You can also see a student having the good pointer, he shows good performance in all things. Whatever he does.

As our friends said, a theoretical knowledge is not necessary. It is just a memory. Sir if you are doing practically. You can't understand, what is happening why it is happening.

In engineering college, if you do the project in any branch. Professor will definitely say that first, you do literature survey, then you start. Prof may also take an oral exam, ppt on that literature survey what you have done for the project. This exam will show your capabilities.

So finally, I conclude my opinion. An examination is not a devil. It is just a criteria to check your capabilities.

Of Course, exams are spoiling our education. Education should be built step by step. It should not be pushed. Talent and knowledge keep our life to move forward. I like to give you one example: In Higher, secondary everyone forced to get top marks but now we can't found that person, who got the first mark and just for others satisfaction. We can found some persons who discontinue their current studies and moving again to their interest ones. Like that Making waste of time in examinations. We can plan some interesting in their studies not to be a bookworm. We can provide practicals in every study. Which help them life long to remember their studies.

Yes, Examinations has killed the education, because if we talk about the present scenario, students are being sent to school forcibly by their parents so that they could pass the examinations as their expectations and could get a job to secure their future. In all this, they are lacking the knowledge. Students are learning which matters the examinations only. For instance: there are many of my relatives and neighbors, they frankly say that somehow their child could get a job, and their work has been done.

There might be a solution according to me after teaching some compulsory subjects till their primary grades (till class 5th), they should be allowed only one subject to be focused and should be asked to take the examination of the same subject. They should not be forced for the exams of another subject. In this way, a student will select a subject of his choice and will give his 100% to that subject surely.

I am in fewer of the examination system.

As some of my friends have discussed the negative aspects of exams, I don't completely deny this thing but I would like to highlight some points which show the importance of examinations.

The situation about which many of the guys are talking is the ideal one according to which each and every student is fond of studies and curious about learning new things. But if see the reality then we can understand that around 80-85% of the students of todays generation do not study before exams, now if we think about them then it seems that they would not study anything if exams will not be there and what will be their future then.

So we can say that exams are the most important tool that helps in maintaining an appropriate level of knowledge among the students.

At last, I would like to say that examinations also includes practicals, viva voice, and other internal assessments in order to the practical knowledge of the students.

Priyanka Nair said: (Jun 10, 2016)  
I do not feel examinations are necessary for proper education. While examinations help us test our knowledge, over the years they have become more of a memory test. Marks have become more important than knowledge, they have become part of one's identity. One is often judged by the marks scored by him or her in an examination. The pressure and stress faced by students due to these tests have led to them losing interest in studies. Some might say without exams, students will not study. I say students will not study if they lack interest in the subject and what they study with interest will be the right education (for them). Thus, I feel exams should not be the trigger for them to study, their passion to explore and find out should be their trigger.

Hello, everyone.

I would like to speak everything about exams today. I have been really frustrated by these exams. I hate exams. No matter how much I study how much I understand I always score average. Because I don't mug up things. I try and understand everything properly. Read everything in detail. So that I gain more knowledge about the subject.

But then in exams, I have never been able to complete my paper. Because I apply my mind and write sensible answers but people who mug up things complete their paper easily and some people even write stupid things by just reading the meaning of the topic. Elaborate the answer and even they score marks.

So what's the difference then? Also, I think marks depends on other circumstances like sometimes a student knows everything but then due to hesitation, lack of time, out of course questions, inability to write stupid things elaborating one line into 100 lines. Etc. Also illness. But then that student even if he or she can explain every topic if you ask. Scores less and others score more even if they don't know much. Marks marks marks everywhere.

The students who are capable of doing great things are left behind doing nothing because of this system. I am not saying every student who scores well knows nothing and every student who scores less is intelligent. But the only thing is this system of marks has let down many students because of stupid judgments everyone makes.

Guys. In my point of we never think to break our thoughts or to think outside of the box because we don't know how to do that. This is not our mistake. This is because of our education SYSTEM. We are born with creativity but this gotten suppressed in a later stage. How? when the time we start to learn in schools that Is the starting stage. When a person scores high marks in the exam All the teachers and student calling him our genius. Is he really a genius? a big no, the purpose of EXAMS are conducted is to test to our memory power. BUT WHAT IS THE USE OF IT anyhow we going to forget it after a period. Till now we are giving important which is non-essential one.

Guys remind your school day. Science project is will be conducted. But how many will participate in that? Out of 38, not more than 6 people from each class will participate in that, why? we all learn science subject from our small classes. If we can't even invent something newly then what we are going to do later. Even though we are good at studies and score high marks in exam, if we can not do anything from what we learn. Then what is the point of scoring high marks in exams and learning? It is totally utter waste at the end.

Our teacher only knows to teach what is in the book. That we can also do it isn't it. Then what is the use of teachers? Really I don't understand it. Do you know? think deeply. Guys everyone knows that education system should change but no one is taking a step regarding that. Do you know what is the reason behind it? if we commenting on this what is going to happen. Do you think it will bring changes nothing will change. Do you know something even though we know which is the right path but we will never go and fight for that how amazing isn't it? We just took this issue as a topic to discuss.

Do you know because of this education system we have not gain anything for a long time but we have lots more which you can't even think. How much will it be? if you all thinking that we should stop this anyhow means. What are you going to do? What will happen if this same issue going to affect the next generation? Do you have any idea about that? So that only to avoid some tragic I am doing research on it. I am psychologist student of the 1st year. To become my research successful one I need your supports and help.

NOW just think over it, if there is no examination system. So, when do they study and what will be the future of the world.

An at-least student came to know what are their topics about which they are going to study.

Exams put immense pressure on the student because failure in performance would cause them consequences. The pressure of peers, career is all based on that one test.

I think, it doesn't make sense that exams kill creativity or exam result in talented outcome. CREATIVITY is far more important than CAPABILITY. So just the simple logic is that the way, in which the questions are asked must be changed. The topics like aptitude and reasoning must be included in every national level examination irrespective of the department or profession. By this we can extract the people who not just only are capable of studying a large content, but also can tackle with different situations.

Examination system is an integral part of the Education system but not the examination system which we have adopted, wherein we are just testing memory of the children(students) and killing their creativity. To evolve a healthy education system where every available talent can be nurtured, we have to divide our curriculum in such a way that every child can use their natural talent and excel in the field in which they want to go, not a standard pattern what today we have irrespective of whether child understands or not just mug-up and vomit.

Hello my dear friend,

My opinion about this sensitive topic is that YES Examination has killed students. It has given lots of mental and physical pressure to us. Mental Pressure is there from two sides one is of too much and lengthy syllabus and the other from our parents. From our parents means they are thinking that getting good marks in EXAM means that we are good in studies and will be successful in future and getting bad marks in EXAM means that we are bad in studies and will be not successful in future and will not have a great career.

So, our parents force us to get good marks in EXAM anyhow. They didn't understand that by learning the basic things of the matter for lifetime and to get minimum marks is better to memorize the things for a short period of time and to omit it in the paper and to get full marks. They always run behind marks instead of giving sufficient time to their child.

And physical pressure because they think that by giving us in many tutions we can get more knowledge but we are getting the same knowledge by reading in one tuition only. And the students can't bear all this pressure.

Thank you.

My friends education means what you have learned. Actually exams are the test process to check the ability of a candidate for his gained knowledge. But we have made it division wise like first division, second division. Exam has not killed our education, but we have made it at fault. We have made it only marking status. If a candidate gets good marks for his examination is good. If failed, he may feel it is bad. To make it a good for education, we should not make it result oriented.

Exams are the means of education through which one can improve one's educational qualifications step by step. But I think today exams are not as much important. Because getting job nowadays is talent based but not merit based.

The main aim of our educational system is to earn money and knowledge. It is the worldly knowledge and experience in life that gives us knowledge. The pattern of exams are corrupted now a days because many universities are offering Malpractices. Like this we can only get a degree which is not useful and that type of candidates are filtered in off campus interviews. Through education we should get knowledge and there is no end to this knowledge. The knowledge we gained should improve our mannerism. And good manners are the sowing seeds of good character. Today many gems of extraordinary intelligence are misusing their knowledge.

Our examination pattern should be not of bi-heart type it should give us some practical knowledge in our life. Exams are not the end of learning and gaining knowledge. The exams are threatening today youth because of threatenings of their parents and society. If one develops a positive attitude and take the exams as challenge he becomes a great person. The competition between the youth should be a healthy one. If it is not healthy there is a chance of collapsing. Exams are necessary remark our knowledge that we have gained in the academic year. But so many people who are not educated are serving as great persons not only in India but also in foreign. So it is not the academic achievement that enhances a persons knowledge but it is the worldly knowledge and experience in his life.

Hello friends,

Examinations and knowledge are 2 main aspects of life but according to present, examinations are not only building up pressure & stress on the students life and also kill their creativity power.

Examinations should be knowledge oriented not marks and grade oriented. Education should also have it's prime focus on employment not on the reputation of the institution and universities.

Also, the meaning of education is not mugging something and omit it on the paper for short period of time for heaven feeling of self.

In present generation schools unnecessarily pressurizing everyone including kids to get 90% above. Here are so many exams annually like weekly, half-yearly, etc. So student have barely any time for extra curricular activities.

Also, examinations are killing the actual meaning of education as it's very obvious that nowadays students are only mugging up the portion of syllabus that's all which will not fetch them much rather just a dull future.

Education does not mean scoring good marks as if we take the example of Mr. Bill Gates was a dropper. But if we see him how he is one of the richest man in world.

Hey friends,

According to me, testing is not running education it is killing the joy of learning for students by forcing their learning to be more focused on the product than the process. Frequently, students are not allowed to discover meaning, and consequently many of them become disengaged. In addition numerous, more creative ways to assess learning are overlooked.

I will add that what is really hurting education is that the data that these tests bring in is not being used to DIFFERENTIATE instruction, and instead is being used as a sole method of measurement to either open or shut down schools. What this is bringing with it is that teachers are teaching to the test, the test comes and goes, and so does the school.

What needs to happen is that whatever assessment tool we already have should be used to determine what our students NEED nor where our students are. For that, we would need a Pre/Post testing for quantitative correlations. Since that is hardly the case, it would be safe to argue that standardized testing is definitely not being used correctly and eventually will end up killing education as you say.

I think examination is a part of our life. Exams are the way to test our knowledge without conducting the exams and test students don't concentrate in their studies and learn their lessons properly. Some people may thought that exams are not necessary for school and college students, but this kind of attitude is wrong.

Without exams students will be tension free, they don't concentrate in their studies and lessons. Some students don't go to the school or college, if the examination system is cancelled from school/college.

It is helping the students in by hearing the lessons just before the exams. In real, an examination is to be conducted to test the performance of the candidate in whole year. But it's not happening now-a-days. Each student is bargaining for marks after the exams. I think it's not fair.

Examination didn't killed the education, but it is making it to come to an extinct. A person can achieve success only through education and examinations. The more you gain knowledge, more you can give exams at different levels. This increases a confidence level and make him more educated. Through these exams you can get the best job you've ever dreamed. This takes a man to two ways first, either success or failure.

Through cheats, person can do anything but he'll never gain knowledge. Students must take examinations as an opportunity rather than taking them a burden and over thinking. The best preparations will give them the best outputs. Nowadays so many ways have came to gain knowledge. The best is the e-commerce, online tutorials these all are the best ways to achieve success.

Most of the exams pattern is not sufficient to evaluate the real capabilities of the student. Generally, there are some important questions which comes every year. So some students just heartening the answers for them like robots and getting good score even though they are not aware of the actual concept.

Hello Everyone.

A positive point about examination towards education is that the complexity has been increased a bit. Nowadays, In the college or the schools the students have to give several different types of tests in rounds Like board practicals, vivas and several tests. Its made strict, in order to test the knowledge, skills of the students.

The reason behind this complexity is to increase the confidence levels in the students so that they can apply for an interview in a good company. This is also made applicable while applying for a interview. Several rounds are made i.e. Group discussion, tests, presentations so that person can face the difficulties and increase the confidence with an experience.

But there is a big but, Today exams are not thane as 'exams' but students by heart the subjects before giving their exams. This would no way help to test a student's real ability within a test of couple of hours. We need to pay more heed towards the practical knowledge than the bookish knowledge.

Today exams have became the mirror that shows the ability of a student but my dear friends can it really show the real ability of student?No! not at all, exams are not the parameters of a students excellence. I was quite interested as I was busy in one my practicals and was writing the observation in a paper then suddenly my mom stepped in and took away all my papers and strictly told me to do study as you are going to face your boards exams this year.

Hello everyone,

According to me, education is there for increasing the knowledge of the student. It is normally said to be that examination is the mirror of the student. But I think one examination can't evaluate the capability of a student. It may happen that a particular student who has really good knowledge, is not able to get good marks because of illness or some mental pressure.

So, I would prefer day to day evaluation than a single examination. It not only able us to find out the actually talented student but also there will be no pressure on the students. Because solving the last 10 years questions before one month of examination or taking some short cut to get good marks in the examination does't enrich our knowledge.

So, my advice is mainly focus on talent of every student to grow them and help them in weak subjects to pass their examination this way we can eliminate the problems happening in the society.

My view on exam is that, exams are must because it shows that whatever we learn on for future or for our-self, we understood and it also tells that institution from where we are learning is able to do their job properly and main purpose of educating people has been successful. This should happen but in our education system people give exam only to pass the subject I personally don't understand for whom they give the exam and what it signifies, it neither educates you nor it make any improvement in your profile that you studied this and that subject very well.

Today almost 95% students read the portion a week before the exam, this is totally wrong. Teachers should teach in such a way that students will develop their interest and students also should read daily which is been taught in class or school then no exam will kill the education.

Exams are basically for us only they don't give any credit to school. So main thing is we must change our attitude towards exam and this will be very helpful for improving our education system its my humble request to all to change our thinking so that system will have to change.

We Step into this education system at the age of 5 and completed at age 25. In this valuable period of time our childhood with wonderful imagination capabilities, and our teenage with innovative ideas and creative thoughts are gone. Because this system never give value for these in our education system.

In our school days they always said that you must memorize every thing and just write on paper that's enough, you will become topper. Then children thought that may this is the right
way, ultimately he forgot his capabilities of imagination.

Come to collage days or teenage, in this age students has innovative ideas and thoughts but here also the same thing happens, this competitive education system frightened you, that "your crazy ideas never give you the ranks, you must memorize formulas and make apply and calculate in your exam hall then only you will get job. Is this pattern really worth? What mean in memorizing formulas, student's must capable to create the formula's. This system put mark and judge all students to reach that, by this indirectly it makes a boundary to your thoughts
your capability.

"Education must lit your self consciousness and build your thinking capabilities ". But there is no foot prints of those qualities. "This zigzag education system can make knowledge dots
in your mind but your self consciousness only can link those dot's".


"There is no worth to knowledge without attitude". Through this racist education system,
student's are come out with evil qualities like envy, racism, meaning less competition. So many white collar fellows came out this education system indulges corruption, an IAS officer, a politician, more over chief justice of high court indulges corruption, and finally Shameful thing is a teacher harass a student.

"Education system must produce not only knowledge but also
morality in student's minds".


We proudly say that, oh ! Satya Nadella, our Indian become a CEO of Microsoft, oh! Our Tamil lady, Indra Nooyi become CEO of multinational company PepsiCo. Actually this is not matter of proud this is matter of shame. Because we can't able build a platform to them. May be in our
education system there is no certificate for the ideas and innovative thoughts. But in foreign countries ideas are more valuable than rankings. Mostly all certificate holders are work under idea's of crazy thinkers. Thinking capability is more valuable than knowledge. Thinkable man only survive happily in this obstacle world. For the change we must respect ideas along
with knowledge. "without thinking you are nothing".

We feel proud if we are employ of Microsoft. Just think once founder of that prestigious company was collage dropout, Bill Gates, but his creative thinking and entrepreneurial skills make him icon of this new enthusiastic generation. Unfortunately we don't even
heard of those things in our system. And also company Apple, founder of that also collage dropout, Steve Jobs. They are dropout but we feel proud when as a ranker to work under those school dropout thinkers.

We must agree one thing "Ultimately all Rankers work under
Thinkers". So we need to choose between them, be only a ranker or
be also a thinker.
