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! I An electric technician has equivalent practical knowledge than an Engineer. So is he different?How to make difference. There should be exams that show how well you know your subjects and stream.

I agree with you guys that examinations are a good way of expressing the talents. But in the current situation, we don't have a good education system. Education system has been changed into corruption. Anyway, that is not the topic is about. 5 out of 10 children gets good marks. 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. According to me, examinations have not killed the education system but it killed most of the students' life who are talented in other activities because everyone considering it as the only way to express the talents.

Hello everybody,

I'm Tamilselvan. The examination system has not killed the education. ONE TIME WRITE AN EXAM IS EQUAL TO THE 10 TIMES OF READING THE SAME QUESTION. But our study method is very very poor. Just minding in our mind all and vomit on papers whatever they studied. This is not a proper study for exam. We should know the concept of our study. In real time when that is using. In my point of view, practical exams are much better than theoretical exams.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

HELLO EVERYONE,

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.

Thanks!

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.

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.

Hello, friend, I am Gaurav.

I am somewhat in favour of examination, you are saying that. The student just cramps and vomit their answers on answer-sheet. I am a hostler and I have noticed that about 85% of students are not interested in the study. They even don't open their books before the exam.

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.

I agree that practical knowledge is the must for everyone, but at least for showing off they study and grab some knowledge.

And something is far better than nothing. So examination system should not be stopped but it should be updated.

I'm Kunal, I think examinations are killing the education. By "examinations" I refer to the prevailing conditiion of exams. The exams where students are expected to mug up answers. Students, all they talk about is marks, grades but they lack curiosity about what they 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.

The student doesn't get time for extracurricular activities. I think exams, along with education, are killing the student too. We need to change the exam conduct pattern. There is so much competition around the world today.

We can never judge any students by taking their exam only because students prepare their selves only for exams and after some time they forget all things. Exam gives students pressure and at the time of exam, students keep in their mind fear of exam and only try to get more and more marks as possible.

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. Learning is much beyond this marks system and let us advise to our government to get away from these old system, at least sooner is the better Board examination should be abolished once for all to make our future generation stress free and save their inherent talent.

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. We should make it excellence oriented. It will be good if we follow the dialogue of Three idiot movie 'Don't Go For Success Go For Excellence'.

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.

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.

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.

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.
