Examinations have their own importance. They must be held. Because that improves the stress management. But the ways. Both they held and the way students take them must be changed. There should not discrimination like pass or fail. They must decide the cadre of promotion but not the stage of promotion.

Hi friends.

I really agree to the statement "exams kills education" because some students just study the next day of the exam. Some students make plan that they will deal (copy) each other and the teachers don't realize that. Although I am a ranker I don't like exam as it causes stress and some of my friends are now my enemies.

HOPE YOU SUPPORT THIS STATEMENT!

Hello everyone. I personally think that the written examination pattern has literally killed the present education system. This is because the present written pattern examination has literally become a source of fear for the students. Students may be given lengthy question papers with limited time.

There are students who have the sufficient knowledge and are good in practical sense but cannot reproduce their knowledge as words for the examination paper. So, the marks awarded if low could hamper the confidence of bright students who are not good at giving written tests. It is also seen as a practice during examination time wherein the students are forced to mug up just for the sake of getting marks for the exam.

So the students who have the caliber of writing well and have good handwriting have the chances of scoring good marks but in reality when this happens the legitimacy of the education system is being questioned. So, in short with present examination pattern prevailing, marks are given higher priority than having proper knowledge.

But still, there should be some methodology to test the knowledge and skills of students. I would suggest some frequent oral tests and practical exams which would actually help both the teacher and student himself or herself analyse and keep track of his/her level of knowledge and skills.

I think this is better than the written examination paper which are most likely to go to dust bin after correction as most of the students would not even bother to go through the mistakes.

Yes I support the point:

1. Examination is all about remembering the things and putted down in the papers. It is not about learning.

2. According to recent survey that 70% of the Hr said that they wanted to pick their employees on the basis soft skills they possess so examination has totally disrupted their chance of getting selected.

3. Today 80% of the Indian youth unemployable according to times of India survey as because they don't have the basic knowledge of subject. Memories totally erases capacity of learning.

4. Examination totally lose out creativity out new breed of students makes them machine.

Hai Friends. I am Azar,

Examination is just the practice to outcome our knowledge what we have studied in that field. But in now a days exam is the only way to decide the person is brilliant or not.

Thomas Alva Edison said that "Tomorrow is my exam but I am not worry about that because a single paper doesn't decide my talent".

Writing the exam and getting higher mark is not the only way to prove you are a knowledge person. Express your thoughts and idea to a real practice to show your talent.

Hi friends.

Exams are meant to judge ones own knowledge. But coming to reality this is unfair because it is curtailing the creativity of the student. The worst part of today's education system is that it is resulting in bookish knowledge which is of no use. Though the number of educated is increasing, quality is declining. Because of exams students are just sticking to their academic books and not showing any interest in widening their knowledge.

In this contest I would like to say that Particularly India's education system is a failure as "closed book system" exists here and the students go on mugging up the answers. Where as in foreign countries "open book system" exists which is of more advantageous as the student goes through each and every line of text several times.

According to me is examination means to test or examine a person but we all know that examinations from school level to college level have group examinations where everyone has a prone to cheating or discussing this gives a wrong analysis report of the particular person.

So I do feel that the examinations are to be conducted in a different patterns. To know what is the exact knowledge gained by the person and to know how will be the future of India. In an analytical manner. :)

What examination has done to us? we study one day before the exam (most of us). This is not the real test/performance of the student. The Real test is when you do a journal/patent in a subject, where you can contribute something to the education. Just learning the subjects for namesake purposes without interest is worthless and you will hate it all the time.

Life is short, do what you love. The aim of education is to make a human come out with new ideas and help the society or mankind. Testing one's knowledge is meaningless because, if he has the knowledge he will come out with new ideas. SO ITS ONLY SKILL THATS REQUIRED. Examinations or marks don't carry any meaning.

Education is needed from where we can gain knowledge but the process to have examination in education is not good as education is only of gaining knowledge and knowledge can only gain if we are having our willingness to have it and having the curiosity to know more and work on it like tenacious persons.

As marks will not give us the bread and butter in future but with the knowledge we can earn bread and butter remember company are hiring employee who are having great knowledge and who create and innovate things we all need to explore from the mains books.

Examination is a best way to identify the students who are lagging behind. The students scoring bad in exams should be taken care of. Understanding the problems faced by him rather than discriminating them. While in our country it is completely opposite.

The strong students are always praised and separate section is created for weak student (though it was for betterment, but actually it goes other way round).

Such discrimination provoke the weak students in copying using unfair means in examination.

Education is what? A process through which we gain knowledge about our surroundings. About rights and wrongs. Examination can be a good aspect on testing how well a person knows about his or her surroundings. Can be a bad aspect as it creates a social pressure on students to gain good marks. And the marks have created a caste system like students getting good marks are good and those scoring less are not. So it should not be taken in this way. The pressure should be reduced then only the purpose of examination can be fulfilled.

Hello friends,

Examination is a test of knowledge we gain through education.

Examinations conducted in right way are always good for education. The trend of conducting examinations now a days seriously hamper the education or knowledge growth.

More interactive and practical examinations have to be conducted rather than by hard and write kind of examinations of present days.

Examinations are the only means that help us and others in arriving at conclusion about our knowledge.

Hi friends,

I agree this statement examinations kill the education and also the knowledge of the people, as we know that some students are have scored good marks in exams but their practical knowledge about the subject is very poor but some students score less marks in exams but the practical knowledge about the subject is very well this shows that exams are creating pressure to the students mind and don't let him to understand the subject correctly as I say in above paragraph that the students who score good marks is really not by his good knowledge but he is having good bi-hating the subject due to the exam pressures.

We conclude finally that examinations kill education.

Apart from studies, co-curricular activities are also important. But students are mainly made to focus on getting good marks rather than actually getting knowledge from what they study. They are much concerned about what can be asked in examination and they prepare themselves in same manner.

So how can we say that examinations are actually testing one's knowledge when they are not getting full knowledge on a particular topic as they study only to get marks.

True knowledge includes inculcating good habits, manners which is a part of education and one must focus on these things rather than only focusing on getting marks. So the examinations are not exactly helping to increase knowledge but making practical minds to work as dumb ass.

Hi.

I think examinations are important part of an educational system, but it does not let you know a true performance of a student. Main think to focus about is the knowledge that we take, concepts that we learn. When a student get to know the concepts well he/she can succeed in any examination, therefore, examinations are important to a level.

Exams work fine anywhere else in the world. I think the main problem is India is that learning is geared to teach students to memorise petty facts rather that understand essential concepts. The educators are unable to separate the essence of a subject from its accidents. Why would someone memorise key words rather than understand core principles. For example knowing the moment of inertia of certain bodies is not as important as understanding that it is the rotational analog of mass. Knowing the name of a of a grammar term is not as important as knowing how to follow it. The problem is that students who become teachers also growing up also believing that learning is fact based rather than concept based. Memorising useless facts appears to give one bragging rights.

Examination should be conducted and should be more focused on practical knowledge than theory. Practical knowledge is longlast knowledge and by learning theory we would remember up to maximum 2 days.

Because, In today's world practical knowledge is more essential in any field. Theory exams should be there but, should have a limit and more and papers should focus on practical knowledge bit.

Purpose of education is not getting jobs, or a greater life, but a greater world. Though, it must be admitted that exams allow a check in progress, however the present trend of education supports exam learning, rather than actual learning, this is wrong and is the cause of dilution of education. Learning to use rather to write should be encouraged, exams should not be given much importance. The purpose of exams should be change rather than chance.

Some of the student are mugging up notes/books and write in exam, he will get maximum marks. Those students are struggling in company group discussion and some of the entrance examination like net, get.

First you understand your concept. Some of the topics are practically very good to understand. Those things we have to do in a particular way.

Hello friends,

Exams are one of the parameters to measure one's education. But if a person can write 2-3 pages that doesn't mean that he/she is well educated. We call someone educated if he/she knows the concepts and has good manners.

So, from exams point of view, to judge a student, conceptual questions must be asked in the exams. But if the questions are theoretical then its equal to killing of education.

Hi friends.

As per I think, examinations is the best way for students to test their knowledge. Every student gets same knowledge from their teachers but it is also important for both to check how much is captured by that student, for this examinations becomes helpful. Also because of exams one can get information about the competition in today's world. So that he may try at his best to gain more and more knowledge.

As we know that every coin has two sides, in the same way sometimes students gets pressurized because of exams also. So pattern of examinations should be comfortable for students.

Hi.

No, examination hasn't killed education, in fact, education helps the students in judging the time, it makes us realize how time is important in everyone's life. But, nowadays students want to get rid of the examinations which is not a good sign for their development. No doubt, education gives us the values but examination gives us the understanding of it, but students nowadays mug up all the answers instead of understanding the logic behind it, that's the reason, why the students feel pressurized mostly during the examination time and curse the examination and their study pattern.

Students firstly has to change the way of their self study pattern, instead of mugging it up all at once, learn to understand the logic behind it and I want the education department to change the study pattern a bit and make it more reliable and a bit stress-free so that students don't get into mugging up habits again.

According to me examination is something that encourages us with knowledge. But now a days student's aims are high, so to reach their aim student read very much and mug up everything and vomit in the examination sheet. By this the capability of the student can be understood but the student knowledge cannot be understood.

Parents also encourages student to read in this pattern. But according to me a student read by understanding the subjects, not by mugging up. So I want to conclude by saying that the education pattern must be changed, there should be more activities in which the student will need their own talent to do the work.

Examination plays an important role in today's world. Of course, examination is necessary to assess the knowledge of students. But nowadays examination is just getting marks for both students and parents and getting 100% success for educational institutions. Parents force their children to mug up the topics in textbooks and they will omit the same thing in answer paper. Is this the way to assess the knowledge ?

Exams are definitely focused on the theoretical aspect of intelligence, with the other half, practical intelligence, being thrown out the window. For sure a major downfall. If students focus on getting top marks in exams alone, they'll just become a regurgitating computer of information copied out of a book. No individuality, no creation, no changes or improvement to ideas.

Saying that, unless the educative system dramatically changes, it's going to have to be up to your own self to go out there and gain practical knowledge, create your own new ideas from experience, because I don't see exams changing anytime soon. Exams only kill creativity and knowledge if you let it.

Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, determined effort and skilled execution. Like this for skillful execution of learned things, first we have to learn them through education, in this manner examinations creates a keen interest in any topic and raise the spirit in us.

But, like conducting exam, giving marks, pointing out mistakes should not create red emotions to students, it should go in a friendly manner.

Facing every exam gives a lot of experience to students.

After exam lectures should clarify doubts and have to encourage them to do better.

I don't think that examination is killing the education. Actually, the pattern of examination is ruining the mindsets of students. The sole aim of education should not only be getting marks rather it should teach the art of living. There should be perfect composition of theoretical and practical knowledge. Only mugging up things and fetching good marks won't work in the long run.

I conclude that change in education (especially examination) system is the need of hour.

Round the World examinations are conceived as the most effective method of evaluating performance not only in the field of education but almost in every other field nevertheless they come with their own pros and cons. They might be a motivation to some but may scare off others. Some pass them with flying colors while for others they bring bouts of uneasiness. They may have attracted varied reactions but in no way are they killing education. In fact they are the best possible means available to ascertain the impact of education and to calculate how well the education has been received.

As a initiator,

In my view it's true. We already know that Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man. But now_a_days the education is meaningless and the parents and teachers are enforcing the students to get marks but not to gain knowledge. Education mean that gaining knowledge but not getting marks. Now the actual meaning of education is degrading the values of it.

Hai friends.

In my view exams are essential for a student to know about his capability that how expressively he can answer to a problem. One can estimate one's handling capability with these exams. And he can find about his memory power. Exam is a key thing to analyse their capability and worth towards any work. Exams will increase problem solving skills.

But now students getting fear when they heard EXAMS so the way of system must be changed in a way that they must not be afraid of exams, they must know the importance of exams. The system must make the students realize on exams that examination is not a matter of getting MARKS but its a matter of rectification of our FAULTS.

Hi,

In my point of view examination have killed the education, I say it because during my schooling teachers told or even strictly ordered us to study only the important questions and the previous year questions and not anything else. So it made us to be through only in those questions and we did not really understand the other topics.

And we were not allowed play even at our 11th. So exam is really wasting of time and it is of no use.

Examinations are solemnly a method used to judge your knowledge, what would be the point of attaining a position in the world's top college if the candidate is not even capable. Without an examination we would not be able distinguish a failing candidate and successful one. Take a moment or two reinforcing on the fact if there were no examinations the whole world would easily attain an honorable profession such as doctors, nuclear physicists etc. Now imagine a doctor diagnosing who doesn't even know ABC of medical theories. If such was the case all nuclear physicists would end our civilization would come to drastic end due hell of explosions in nuclear reactors.

Thus examinations are needed for the advancement of the world and marking the position of knowledge each individual has attained.

I hope I've able to convey my point through these words, please respond on what you feel about my statement but REMEMBER:

NO EXAMINATION can lead to NO EARTH.

Hello friends.

From my side education has not killed the education system. Because examination is the only way or path through which student can analyse their knowledge, what they actually think whether it is correct or not. They also test their memory power. What they had learned entire years. Those who think that teacher focus on only those student who got good score in the examination. I think, it is wrong up to some extent. Because Teacher focus on that student who got good score in exams. But teacher also focus on those students who don't get good score. I think teacher make pressure on those weak student to do well in next exam. We also know that student can't do well until they get help from teacher.

I'm not agree with that people who say that education system should be focused on practical instead of theoretical. Because if the base of theoretical knowledge is weak then how they can concentrate on practical knowledge. So I think that combination of theoretical and practical knowledge should be applied in education.

Suppose we have to crack the IIT exam. Is it possible to crack IIT EXAM by study deep and deep in each subject. Or we can crack the exam if we study only those topic which are included in IIT Syllabus. So I think during exam period we should study only those topic which are to be asked in next coming exam. I 'm not saying that we should not study deep. We should study deeply only after the exam so that it doesn't effect our exam.

Examination is the reflection of student mind or we can say it is the battle where the soldier has to play its role bravely and more sincerely. This is the crucial or the climax part of the whole studying year. Passing the moment of examination wisely and smartly gives us the excellence and asks us to cross the gate of difficulty with most enthusiastically and happily.

Though some people have in view that examination has killing effect on the students but I say this three hours of sitting more concentrated than ever help you to reach the peak of success. Those student can only see the beautiful part of the life. I feel this is totally justified because the success should be given to only those person who deserve it and who know the pain behind it.

Yes I think examination has it killed education because we are learning only for passing examination but we don't care what knowledge behind the subject and that need us. Everywhere parent force the child to go on beta you need to score more in 10 or 12th examination but they don't care about our child perfect in sports, painting or other activity. And one more reason why parents force the student to study hard is that they think if our kid will get good percentage in examination then our reputation in society would be increase automatically. This is happening because our society require that type of student.

If we teach student according to practical knowledge of particular subject then every student will be perfect about his own int-restful subject.

Good morning friends,

In my opinion, examinations were introduced with the sole purpose to let us know how much we know about a particular subject. So, in short, it is a test of our knowledge, thinking ability and how we can present what we know.

But the Indian examination pattern is such that it has compel the students to think that without mugging up you cannot score well which is a major setback for us. Due to this the graduating students have only the good grades but not the deep knowledge of a subject. Hence, they only know the theoretical aspect of a particular subject instead of its practical aspect and hence found it difficult to survive in the competitive industrial environment.

Our examination pattern should be such that students should focus on learning the subject not on mugging up the subject only then the Indian students will be able to achieve excellence in whatever field they want to make their careers. Teaching the students to learn the application of a subject is necessary because then only will they be able to handle the examinations that life will put them into.

Thank You.

Hi, I am a grade 12 student going to school in eastern Canada. I am only able to speak of the system that I am involved in, and the way that our system works is examinations are in the teachers discretion. We can have a mid term exam, or a final exam, or both. How they work is if we have a mid term, it will cover all of the material up to that point, and the same with the final, but if we have both the final is everything after the mid term. The exams vary on worth depending on the coarse and teacher. Generally they're worth something like 20-25%. I personally really like this system we have and I find it fair.

The students can consider it in 2 ways. One is that they are able to improve by the result of their examinations and they may be still discouraged with their results, which may lead to fear of exams. Students should always attend examinations in order to know their stand. "examination-killing education" is never going to happen.

Examination is basically a state through which you get to know how much you have learned and what remains. And it also tells whether you have learned is correct or not.

It just a test of your knowledge.
So it can never kill the education.

BUT now a days our students run after only marks. They don't wanna get knowledge, they just wanna scored good marks in any how and therefore the real meaning of examination is getting disappear and it is going to become the source of getting marks. And that's why it is killing the knowledge.

When the students got highest mark in the exam teacher is focus only these students and more train and other students become poor;and the students are fail in the higher secondary examination then students are trying to other things.

And the examination systems our board is bad and the practical exam is more than the theoretical exam so the students got the new idea. And now a days parents are comparison to other students result and to angry & heat the students for more marks. When the students fail in the exam some parents are not support for the further studies. And teacher also knowledge of the sports, politics, current affairs etc.

Friends In my opinion exams play a key role in our life. If there is no exam we will not put any effort to learn & educate. It is a method to test us that how well we are learning from teachers delivered in the class & how successful are in conveying their knowledge. Because of exam we understood that where is our fault. So exam is not killing education it helps to make us educate.

But in other exam is killing education. Because anyone can pass by cheating & learning. If a student is cheating in exam I think this is not the fault of student because he want high percentages for getting admission in high reputed colleges. But there is one solution to solve this problem, I think the exam should be set in such a way that it cannot be passed by simply mugging up like aptitude test which cannot be crammed.

In my view no exam in the world could correctly judge the skills of the person. Actually examinations are introduced to check the knowledge of the person but unfortunately in the present system students are just preparing for exams, to get ranks etc thats it. They just focussed on getting admitted to further studies but not of possessing the required knowledge. Because of which students who are interested in acquiring knowledge have given up to the system prevailing. Many coaching institutes took birth because to this worse system of examination. Even the teachers who guide the students are focusing on the pattern of examination rather than the information given to them.

I hope at least in future people give importance on quality of education rather than examinations.

Examination is the only parameter of education by which we can measure the level of intelligence. As all of you know that in every class there are students of different IQ levels. But how a teacher will come to know this exactly. These are the marks which stratify the whole class and by this teacher can focus more on the poor students.

Students can keep their parents in dark about studies but by examination parents would be able to keep a check over their children.

Examinations are a means of testing one's knowledge. However, the pattern of Examination must undergo a serious change in order to test the real intelligence of a student. Instead of yearly or semester wise examinations, students should be evaluated on the basis of their quick response to the discussions raised in classes. Weekly tests can be conducted to see if student is rely gaining knowledge from the class room studies. One may surely cram the syllabus one night before the final exams. In this way they may pass, they can never excel. For good results Students should have a clear vision. This is best evaluated on his daily performance.

Examinations are just to rank our knowledge. And I don't support the present education pattern or system. That is making the child brains so stressed that they are ending up mugging the notes. Education system should be in such a way that they should be motivating the little minds and help them grow stronger and bigger such that they will be able to able to face or solve any kind of problem in their future. They should not test only their writing skills but also their analytic skills, speaking skills and creative skills.

Education should be in such a way that children should fall in love with their subjects and get ready and exited for their examinations instead of getting tensed. This can be solved by changing the pattern like including exams on general speeches right from the childhood, so that they develop their keen interest in the general knowledge and current affairs. We already have been through this old system of education.

And hence we know all the Do's and Don'ts. So why not our generation take a step ahead in building the perfect bridge of education for the next generations? One thing the society and the administrators should understand always, that this earth keeps on revolving and rotating all through the year. But all its characteristics are changing every second. The why should we keep on following the old education methods when we know what care should be taken for our children to take them to great heights.

For example, if a person got a good marks, means he is very talented.

But, no one knows how he get the marks by mugging up or malpractice, or hard work or by any other means.

Students attend a school or college more than 150 days a year but that will amount to only 20% in exams. Mugging up at the last moment and vomiting in the paper amounts to massive 80%.

In India we produce software engineers who are to be trained for 1 year after the degree course, because they don't know a thing about the application of those 500+ lines codes they mugged up.

Scholarships are based on marks not on capability to analyze, think, invent or benefit the society.

And finally when exam bugs are on salary since they lack entrepreneurship qualities, they tend to complain about their unhappy lives as their career growth goes in depression.

Please examine students on basis of their education they gained in school not on how much they scored in exams. We don't need all PhD's to build a nation. We need diversity in quality. Recognize a student's quality and polish it to be a county's asset.

Hello Friends,

I fully agree that the school system needs a change. But maybe the exams aren't the full problem. Sure, the teachers only teach what's on the exam, but don't the kids that study hard do better? what I'm referring to here is the multiple activities that schools employ to get kids to come to school. From games, to fundraisers, to assemblies, these all take time out of the school day, limiting the ability of teachers to fully teach their respective subjects. I also go to Bonneville high, and I am ashamed at how this school is run. Just this past week, we have had 2 assemblies, 5 games, and the teachers are already just reviewing everything that will be on the coming tests. The teachers outright refuse to hold a conversation about parts of a subject that aren't on the core tests. This is limiting me a lot, since they are giving everyone lots of computer assignments. I am so caught up trying to get all the online homework done, that I don't have enough time to research any subjects before I have to go to bed. I think that the schools should be teaching me everything I need to know in life, not making me sit in an auditorium watching popular kids walk around on a stage.
