We must conduct exam because somewhere it helps us to boost our ability because the examination is the way where you can find yourself that who am I. I mean to say if you score good in examination then you get motivated and you do whatever you want to do. I would like like to give you an example a worker work entire month and lastly he gets then his happiness is extreme level. The exam is the same thing.

Good morning everyone,

In my opinion, examinations are not killing the education system. They are conducted to test our knowledge levels and we shouldn't take it as a pressure or stress. It is the way to test our IQ.

Good evening.

According to me, it is very easy to understand that you cannot ignore examination because it shows you where you are? For proper measurement examination is very need full.

It's not happen in academic life only but also in real life. What mistake have done in past examinations learn from it measure, and move ahead with proper improvement.

But I want to highlight on thing that examination like academics is stopping student grow.

In my point of view, education is applicable to learning the concepts in practical manner not to write in papers. I give an example if you want to make a rocket we must have awerness about the ingredients and its working properties then only you can be able to make a rocket but the thing is happninng in India learn and write in exams that exams do not shine your mind to create new innovations. So please stop this exam centric method and give ability to the students through creative and innovative manner. The advantages of practical learning is the concept is fixed in your mind and the disadvantages of theory learning and put it in exams is the lines of the answers are stored in your mind like 2 tuple Xerox copy. So I request the government to change our education system and rebuilt it well and destroy private schools and colleges as for as possible they don't run education they business with education by tourchuring the student to get more marks it didn't benefit to student it is only only benefit to management to get more admissions for next year. I have a dream to see our country with pure education. -jaihind.

I Am very interest to talk about this topic. Examination means to test the ability of a person how he understood the concept and how used in real life but we are wasting time by just put it in exams. What is meant by engineering?they are creators of the world they have to spend there time most at New Creations. But in present situation engineering in India means only permitted to classrooms and mug up the answers and present it in the exam. In this case what we learn new things.

Did marks give the experience to work In the company no our talent and passion? Giving exams and getting marks is only for the identity of the person is educated just. In my point of view, education means how to apply the concept in real society what we have learned from lower education to higher education that automatically give good opportunities for our life. Today lacks of students completed there engineering but no one suited for the Jobs because of lack of what I discussed above. So our youth have the ability to change our education system for the sake of upcoming generations.

Yes, examination is really killing students life. If you consider a Btech as a eg. One semester normally runs max to max for 4months, in this period we should give a number of the internal exams, no of practical exams, final exams and the holidays included it. Now, tell me after giving all these exams whether we have seen the change in ourselves as an engineer? No, we have just increased our memorizing capacity. Don't forget that Education is Knowledge which makes every student to be well disciplined in his/her life. So my final advice is to stop the examination and stop the student's limitations because there are a lot of things present outside, other than examination which we have to look upon.

I don't think so examination has killed education just because exams are for testing our memorizing capacity that what we have till studied in our school. According to me, people give more priority to marks than the knowledge that is not good just because how 3 hours paper will not decide our career. There must be a solution of this reason that marks are not a priority. Education is something gives us knowledge about the various thing it's about the development of our brain. Actually, exams are not the reason for this solution must be a change in our thinking just because our teachers ' parents ' friend, relatives everyone ask good marks good job.

Hello everyone. I am new to this blog and I must confess before I begin that I have not read more than a few entries.

I am looking for someone who can tell me if somebody has done any formal research on this very important topic. I have spent some time on this subject and I would like to publish something useful for the teachers and the policymakers.

Are exam scores a reliable, reproducible and realistic estimate of a students' educational achievements? How much does it predict future performance? Or promise for future contributions?

This is the most important issue that needs to be fixed. How do we make exams reflect the academic merit of the candidate?

The next question is how we can optimise the time, effort, manpower and cost without compromising the VALUE of the examination.

One thing I have found is that there is an inverse correlation between the complexity of the examination infrastructure and the reputation of the universities in India. The bulky infrastructure is directly the result of a brutally centralised system.

For instance, if there is a very prominent "controller of examinations/evaluation" in the University set up, chances are that the university is not rated high inernationally. Compare IITs with Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University. JNTU has a directorate with Evaluation placed on top of the hierarchy. IITs will not do that.

The examination is a process that is used to understand the level of knowledge that a student has. Exams do not only mean descriptive papers which are limited to a particular topic or book, as they are in schools. Consider the various competitive exams, they are all objective type with questions that contain a mix of direct answers or implementation of logic using the facts learned. These kind of exams are beneficial as they help in judging the thinking or analytical ability of a student.

Current education system is currently based on the descriptive format papers. But this is slowly changing. Education is not dead, it is now going to be reborn according to the changing times.

Examinations are needed. Without examination it becomes difficult to prove that we have owned a particular degree or any other educational qualification. Presently there is no other alternative method for it. Without examinations what is the evidence for studying in an educational institution for years. And how could a university give you certificate for a certain degree? So those who are against examination must offer alternative solution to this problem.

According to my point of view, examination kills education. Education is gaining knowledge and knowing everything in this world. But our education system is based on marks. Mark is more important than learning new things.

Usually 80%of students does not have any knowledge on the subject they just mug up their and vomit in their answer paper. Exams are just to check the memorizing ability. Many will score good marks but will be poor in practicals. From my opinion, I will say that education system should be changed and practicals should be concentrated more.

Hi I am Gurpreetsoni.

According to me examination is the best way to test our knowledge without examination we can't judge ourselves. If a person learn something from his school, collage or from any other place it is only examination to know.

That he learn it properly or not. Examination also motivate a person to do batter for example if a person pass a exam then he will try to do more batter. But according to my thinking if any person or student committed suicide do to his failure in examination then he can never succeed in his life because he is not able to face his failure so how can you expect them that he will be successful in his life he cannot be succeed. So it is wrong thinking that examination kill education.

Good evening friends,

In my point of view, examinations is good for testing our knowledge on topics what we learnt in colleges or schools or any other places. But, because of some external forces students feel like stress and pressure in examinations.

In India, some educational institutions and parents are making force to get good marks to their students and children. It is good but it should be a certain limit. Because parents are telling to their children like this " you should get good marks otherwise you will not get success in your life. " with this words students studied hard and they by hart the concepts whether they understand or not.

According to me because of the above reason, most of the students are not getting jobs because of they are unable to do practical things and they are losing their thinking abilities.

Thank you.

But for the point has it killed education, has two sides. As in many schools and colleges and even in many homes students are being forced to score. So in such case, it may occur that student may lose his/her focus on understanding things and knowing things practically to just scoring marks.

But when a student is given freedom to learn in what so ever way they wish to study, they are able to better explore things and examinations become an add-on to their preparation like a guide.

Hello guys.

Well, I think that examinations are a good way to check out the student's performance in school but it's not the best way to improvise your educational skills. It's just a mere way of how well a student can memorize or how hard he can work. But in today's world we just not need to work hard, instead we need to work in a smarter way and that can only be built by usage of that knowledge into practical life.

So the schools should more focus on the practical implications of education instead of making it a mere way of boredom to just memorize and top in the exams.

Absolutely no. Examination is a necessary thing un education by which we can measure our performance. We can determine how much we have learnt. Also we can rectify our faults and motivate to study more. If we score good in examination then it brings us confidence. Similarly, if we score less in examination then we try to boost our knowledge. Examination helps us to create a healthy competitive atmosphere. But sometimes we take too much stress to sustain this competitive atmosphere. Sometimes it creates mental pressure. So we have to balance it and motivate ourselves for achieving goals.

Well examinations are really necessary to assess a student's education. It is very important to know for the student where does he stand in today's competitive age. It lets us know our strength and weaknesses and also helps us to make ourself competent by assessing ourselves through regular examinations. But in India the examinations are not of the right kind. It is totally bookish knowledge based exams. Like in school days no reasoning classes are there but when we go for any competitive exam we encounter with these subjects. So education and exams should be taken in such a manner that prepare a student to face future challenges not just to score high. But having said that I would not support that examinations kill education but it is a part of education and it helps to see one's true position in cutting age competition. Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you.

Examinations are the real devil of our education system. Exams focuses on ability to memorize rather than on understanding the concepts. In general exceptional students and innovators waste their time in proving their ranking in an examination.

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.

According to my point of view,

Now-a-days, wherever we see there is a lot of competition in every field. If we take an example of an MBA entrance exam, there are 80, 000 candidates and seats were only 40, 000. So, if there is no examination then how we conduct that seats to students. Without examination students were no more to interested in studies. Some students are there who learn for the knowledge, and those who does not atleast they learn it from the fear of the examination. Education is the first need to live a wealthy life in future. So, examination has not killed the education in my point of view.

Exams were meant to let the student realize his/her current status, not their future. Keeping their mind in succeeding their future, they neglected their interest towards their favorite subjects. And more over exams are basic means of evaluating ourselves.

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.

While reading all of the above comments I understood our education system is nearby worst but I think the only reason for this is not exams. The only problem that is making education system worst is mentality to judge some one on the basis of marks or ranks. 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. And other subjects should be studied for basic knowledge and if this happens exams will really not remain a burden. Only I want to say is that exams are not killing the education system but it is just the view and system of our society which is going to kill education system.

Yes, I think the Indian examination system has killed the education system. In present the system everyone is more concerned about are marks. Students focus on things which fetch them marks, teachers focus on teaching what will probably come in exam. From an early age, students are compared by teachers and parents on basis of marks which creates a kind of tension among the low performing students, however, they can be good in some other areas, which they should try to discover and try to excel in that particular field.

No. Examinations aren't only specified for education. Examinations are something that are used to TEST what you are good at. Its the education system that screwed up this education. I anyone got bad score in anything it means that he/she isn't good in it. So they have to try something and test themselves to know what they are good at. Everything in this world has to be examined to know how good it is. So its only the differences in the education system that's making the country's level of education.

It's not the examinations that kill the education. It's the system that has brought the education to this level. Examinations are the measure of knowledge. You can only know that you are good at something unless you test it. And that tests are termed as examinations. So it's the education system that's killing the education. For example countries like Finland, their education system is completely different and obviously, they are successful and still they have examinations.

Examinations are not the only way to judge the student's talent. But, in today's life, they will judge the student's talent only on the basis of the scores got by the student.

The faculty shows extra interest on those who is topped in the exams. So, there is no other way for the student rather than to mug up and vomit in the exams. So. That they should not get any criticism in front of others. We cannot judge the capability of a student based on his marks.

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. That means what is wrong? and what is right? because practical exam can't full fill our satisfaction.

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.

No, I don't thing examinations have killed the education. The examination is the way to evaluate ourself. Through only score cards we realise where we actually stand. 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.
