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 and his qualities of doing the accurate answer within a specific time period.

Hi everyone.

I don't think examination has killed our education. But the examination system that we are following kills education. Because it is all about getting marks and it doesn't check whether the student is really worth of it or not. In the present scenario, theoretical exams are given more importance than practicals. We should give more weight to the practical exams rather than theoretical ones. Only then students can worthfully utilise their studies.

As we all know India is a developing nation, that is developing each and every section. So why don't we think to develop our present examination system?

Examination are essential to promote one to work regularly and responsibly, it is needed to keep someone on track of working out things better yet we have also seen that these a time either the parents are giving lot a pressure to their child to retain a good position in this competitive world which may sometimes be depressive or child is taking itself as pressure which comes out as a suicidal and harming events, what I think is a matter of concern.

Myself Acchuthan.

The examination is the right way to secure the knowledge of the students.

In my point of view, the correction of examination is wrong.

In Anna University, the teachers who are evaluating the paper has given the limited time for the 2 minutes with the key points necessary for the given question. They are evaluating in means of the pages of the paper for the given marks and not by considering the contents. If the side heading is correct they are not reading the lines given under the side heading. They are simply seeing the pages and evaluating the points.

No grammatic errors are found in the contents.

In my point of view, the time for evaluating the answer paper can be increased according to the subjects.

In this way, the examination has killed the education.

For the other case depending upon the marks the students feature depends on so the process of evaluating the paper might be correct and it seems the knowledge person can be graduated.

Hello, friends, I'm Mayank.

In My opinion, Examination is compulsory to evaluate the students. Some myths are there about Examination ie they are only for burden, marks hinder talent or more. These myths are false and need to cleared by the teachers.

Examination checks the amount of knowledge gained by the students during the particular course.

Hello everyone good evening,

Let me talk about education, nowadays to live in this world, to communicate with others, business activities, to get the job etc we need education. Examination is just a platform to show the world that we are educated, without examination we can't judge our knowledge and nobody can read our mind that we are educated. So, on my point of view examination never kills education, but it teach us to give an example that how can we survive in this world, how we can face the problems.

Hello everyone.

I would like to initiate by saying a few points about the topic assigned to us. Education is one thing everyone should have. It instill The thinking abilities about the course which he or she is studying and practically. But if we see now a days a student has to go through number of exams from kg to pg. That's not how an education system should be. Exams are curbing the thinking abilities of students which is the primary objective of education. What most of the students are doing is they won't listen to the class what The faculty is teaching, just a month or two before they will go through the books and will clear the exam. This type of education is a waste of one's time and money. The Major cause for unemployment in India is this type of examination based education. Even parents are also just focusing on their child marks instead of what The child is learning by going to school. I am not saying that there shouldn't be any exams but exams should be conducted in such a way that tets The student thinking abilities. I would like to conclude the topic by saying that college should take initiative to eliminate this type of education.

Instead of approaching examinations as a medium to test a person's proficiency in a particular subject, they are viewed as a medium of judging one's abilities. The way students are Under the compulsion to write as exact as what is given in the text shows the misconception of examinations by the state board schools and often students find this way of approach as a difficult task and automatically they tend to develop a fear for examinations. Not just the way of conducting exams but also the way students are spoon fed by the teachers and the method of evaluation using the key set by a group of teachers are definitely not helpful. A unique approach to examination by schools will definitely raise the standard of students and thus I would conclude by saying that examinations conducted in a better way never kills education.

I think so no, because exams helps us to improve our memory power and sharps our brains. It helps us to know that how much have we were Argentine in class. Exams are not only about marks, they are all about expressing our brains memory to teacher. They hemos us to be confident too. In case of higher studies we have to give these exams. There are many countries in which exams are not held do their literacy/economy rate is low. It also checks how we can improve ourselves. And tells in which subject we need to practice more. It also tela to improve our mistakes. In some exams, like English, Hindi, we get life skill questions, in which we can express our views. Also, we develop a speed of writing day, which in future helps us a lot. So at last, I would say that exams are making strong for education.

Examinations are the way to judge the students that how much knowledge they have gained during a certain period of time. Students can check their strengths and weaknesses and work on it.

I partially agree with the topic because in one hand examinations judge our knowledge and reflect it. But on the other hand it reinforces us to study. If there is no examination students may not study hard. Even we are habitual of working hard only before 1 day of examinations. To some extent examinations are the reason that students study just to top in the class or to pass the exam.

Finally, I would like to say that we should understand the motive of examinations. We should study just to be knowledgable; exams will be passed/cracked in no time.

As we talk about today's academic examinations they are mostly full of cramping portion everyone feels him or herself intellectual but when he or she sits in a competitive exam then the particular person came to know what he or she is learnt till that day. In India, every student wants to pass a school life by cramping or by temporarily fixing a syllabus in their mind it's not thought that a 95 or above percentage holder can pass a competition by just learning a syllabus for few days but if a student is learning just only a few part of syllabus but for permanent period of time than he or she will have a better result than 90 above percentage holder.

The examination is a way to test one individual performance and his knowledge. What kills the education is the way we learned in a wrong way. Mostly in India, we learn only to pass in the exams so that we get a job and this leads to the failure of a good education. Even the education system of a nation too involved in it as they include irrelevant topics which is not practical or which can't be used in the future. Students have inferiority in them for the exams. So they just try to remember the concept for the day of the exam and later on it evaporates from their minds.

So, finally, the present education system of our country should be changed so that students should be equipped with skills.

The examination has not killed the education system, rather it is a way to judge the knowledge and intelligence of any student.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Examinations for me are something which helps us to judge ourselves, our performance. To check if we are giving our efforts in right direction. So to me, examinations are very important.

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.

Hi, I am Yash Matalia.

According to my point of view, Examination is nothing but, check the mental ability of the students in under stressful condition. Without examination, How we can check the ability of students? so, the examination is the best way to check the ability of students. Examinations can develop the mind of student & enhance his ability. The result is depending on our hard-work. If a student will hard work then he will have a good result. So, the examination has not killed education but enhance our ability.

What is examination? It is a poison that is being stored in the student's mind. Marks have become the most important thing in one's life. So a student has left behind his own co-curricular activities. To my point of view, examination have changed the mind of the students. If a student does not get 80-90% marks then his whole life is changed and he idea of doing others profession in life is destroyed. So examination is not the only thing to justify a student he also has another extra talent.

I think it is not the examination, but the pattern of assessments that has ruined our education system. Today examination are mere means of checking ones memory. But actually it should be such that it increases the creativity of the students. The assessment techniques which were used 40 years back haven't changed a bit, when the world has changed so much and we need to change with it. No wonder why we have quantity of engineers but very poor quality.

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.

According to my points of view, I don't believe that exams kill education because due to exams we are able to know that how much capability is there in us.

Examination is only the measure to test our progress in our domain in which we are training. That training can be any thing like sports, studies or even art. The Examination doesn't need to be only the written test or a pen and paper test, like the image of examination is formed. Even the sports meet, art competition and other tournaments are also just the other forms of examination. So examination has not killed the education but only refined it.

Hi Frnds,

From my point of view, examination has killed all education. Bcoz, All children have a talent like in
-> Studies
-> Sports
-> Dance
-> Art
-> Music
and etc.

So if we take the examination only studies get involved not any others. when a student takes 80% mark the 70% student will feel sad and it keeps on going. So when they cut exams all the children talent will come out and our India will be always first.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi,

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.

HELLO GUYS.

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.

Hello.

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.
