Hello everyone.

In my opinion examination are not the education but the way of examination is killing the education.

Because people judge the students on their academic level.

We should judge a student on his/her whole knowledge not only on the academic basis.

Because all students are not same.

Some students are good in academic some are good in sports and some are good in other field.

A piece of paper can not decide your future.

Hello Folks. Thank to be having me here.

1) Examination means we are trying to judge the ability of any person by a piece of paper and giving them grades as per the marks.

2) As per my opinion, exams are the best method to enhance the ability of the students and to get the best of the best extraordinary student among all.

3) but problem is that people always started to examine the person only as per the grades, maybe he or she is more talented in any other field.

4) Examination are always judged the learning capability of the person not how talented he/she is.

5) Govt should have changed the pattern of examination govt has to judge students according to his/her talent in every field.

6) We also have to change our mindset that exams are the only method to check the marks and ranks in the class, not about your capabilities.

7) We should encourage student if he/she is not getting marks because of some reason, not by scolding.

8) Judge a person according to his/her talent not how much he got in schools.

9) Definitely in many aspects Examination pattern is killing the real meaning of education. We in search of gold we are losing a diamond.

10) I have no complaints about the examination I have only with the pattern. Only need some updating. We can follow the exam pattern like the USA, Japan, etc.

Hello everyone.

In my opinion, examinations are conducted to test the students ability and to improve the creativity of the students. I can say that examinations are not killing the education but the pattern of the examination is killing the education and it also ruins many students life. Examinations should be held so that we can correct our Mistakes and we can get confidence on ourselves.

Hello everyone.

1) According to my opinion, on this topic. Yes, the examination is killing real education. In this era, every parent is in a rat race everyone just wants good grades only in academics nothing less than this. So this type of attitude is murdering the real talent of students.

2) some students are very perfect in sports, games and many other activities but because of pressure, they have to enrol themselves in education meanwhile they are not so much interested in the study.

3) Examination is the only method to judge that how intelligent you are not how much talented you are but in India marks are everything for parents they judge their kids according to marks.

4) Wherever a student goes only grades are important for every company.

5) Government should be changed the examination pattern and have to give marks according to the talent of the student.

6) Examination also creating jealousy, anxiety in between the students they feel alone and depressed.

7) School should give marks according to the reasoning of the students.

8) Indian education has this massive drawback that examination is the only method to recognize the ability of the student and that's mindset is 100% wrong. We keep in mind that talent and being intelligent these 2 things are vastly different from each other.

So in a nutshell examination really killing the real meaning of education there is a lot of scope in changing some important aspects in the examination pattern.

Yes, in my opinion, it has killed the students.

Evey parents and teachers wats their kids to score 90% above marks in the examination which creates pressure and it provokes the students in doing suicide.

2. It hampers the real growth of students because getting low marks in examination makes the students in self-doubt.

3. Due to not performing good in the exams it lost the interest of students in the study.

4. It persuade the students for cramming.

In my conclusion, the examination is important but it should not be the only parameter for judging the student's real ability students should leave to explore different domains and it is evaluated.

Examinations should be the source for testing the skills of the students that what exactly they have learnt in the entire year. But nowadays, it is really sad to see that examinations have lost their meanings. They have just become the piece of paper and a burden for students- that too not for learning but of getting the highest marks in the class. And to a good extent, I would say that it's the parents and teachers who are responsible for this as they compare one student with another irrespective of thinking that every student has a unique quality. Education is not just academic knowledge. Education completes one's life by letting know how to be a good person, how to behave in society, how to respect your elders, how to be a responsible citizen and what not!

The examination should examine the student wholly and that's it. Marks are just numbers! And just temporary happiness which is of no use in the long run!

I think this is right that examination has killed education.

But in my opinion, exam is not exam they are wasting your half-life because if we go deeper we will see that some student that study not at all they start studying one day before the exam and they passed liked 70 to75 per cent or above that not the real way of the exam.

The exam should be taken by practically because it shows how kid or teenager had learnt the thing not like on paper that's wrong I think.

Hi friends.

As per the question, my point of view, yes examination kill education, because most of our parents think that education is the way to success, with that they force us to get good marks in the exam, so every student has own abilities to study, they can't force us to study if we are not interested, with that some students surrender their life, and another point is that it depends on us, how we are going to face exam if we are interested in the study and we had prepared well then there will be no tension, so friends we have to make our choice that make us happy.

According to me, Yes, examination has killed education, especially in India. It's because our education system solely concerns more about theories than practical knowledge about the subject. The innovate ideas of the students are buried inside.

The students of this generation go on completing the whole syllabus one night before the exam, they just memorise the concepts and don't understand the practical implementation of them.

Parents pressurise their children to get good grades and keep on comparing with other students, which causes anxiety, depression and frustration.

So, I think exams should be a test of knowledge and shouldn't turn to be the reason of depression.

Hi friends.

According to me, everything has both good and bad side. Yes, all the students are not in the same category. Some of the students they like to read and prepare for exam and accordingly they sit the exam, they get their result and some of the students they are not very attentive only at the time of exam they read and manage their exam and maybe they pass. But some of the students they are very regular sometimes they get upset because of maybe he or she not get the marks as per their expectation but those not regular their study he/she gets good marks. Sometimes we see some of the students they are very nervous maybe they are regular but at the time of the exam, they can't compete maybe they fell ill. But without education authority cannot get the chance for the next class. Actually we see some of the students they have very good knowledge and very regular in their study but at the time of exam they don't get results as per their expectations but some of the students they don't want to read but at the time of the exam, they get very good marks. As they get the good marks they can get a chance anywhere but fewer marks he will not get chance I e sometimes students get upset.

Good afternoon to all.

Personally, I think, the examination has killed the talent of a lot of students because still some students have that kind of knowledge which they expressed more freely through practicals than theory. Lots of students only getting marks than theoretical knowledge and at the time of the interview they failed because at that time your practical knowledge matters and that you can express freely because you experienced it. If exams conducted then they should focus 20% on theory and 80% on practical including viva.

The examination is a basic thing which should always available. If we put deep insight in our education, course is designed such way that will produce worker. This is a scent of british traces on our education system and examination too.

Eg, a stone age man want to teach his son about procedure to make wheel. His desire is to make his learn intuitively so he can bring advancement.

That's how technology have been brought over period of human evolution. Examination should focus on intuitions, how well student can utilize his concepts. Most of student prepare themselves for exam, not for subject. Therefore, exam should be designed such way that it will motivate student to take deep insight un subject.

In support of the following points, I believe the method by which an exam is conducted has downgraded the value of the subjects taught to us. It's just a practice of memorizing and vomiting the content in answer paper which gets evaporated immediately.

Of course, our curriculum needs major improvements, but the basic knowledge shouldn't be ignored at any cost. That's a different discussion altogether.

What I would suggest is that schools should give all the necessary tools required to solve a problem given in an exam and let the students deduce the solution by applying their knowledge gained during lectures.

As I hear all of your suggestions.

That we think that examination is a way of judging the student.

Basically, exams are good for the students just because students have to maintain their study well if there is no system of examination So nobody focus on your study.

Examinations of simple way where all the student's thanks show how much they are able.

If there is something wrong so that is not an examination that is the person who is conducting examination process. The system is doing unfair. And the persons or professors who are checking the notebooks they just want quantity not quality.

And this is my personal experience that the University wants only quantity. A huge amount of matter should be written in the notebook there is no matter it will be wrong or right.

So if something killed the education. That's not an examination. That's the system which supported fakeness. And not able to judge the student quality.

As I conclude. That we should support examination because it makes us more hard worker and able to stand with the front of others.

Thank you.

In my point of view, examinations are the one which influences the students to get run with the competitive world.

They can gain the spirit at the time of examination. They can express their knowledge through these exams.

The main disadvantage of these exams we can lose our knowledge.

Some people who are sensitive while getting low marks will get into depressions.

The lecturers who are evaluating the papers they don't see the knowledge of the students.

So, I conclude that examinations are the one who gets interested in studying the subjects by gaining marks to the student's life.

My views on examinations have killed education or not are given below.

First of all, I want to say that examination is the best way to check the student knows what he/she grasp in month or year. It checks the capability of a student. But on the other hand, it has a much worse impact on student's carrier because student only studies limited subjects to get passing marks in exams. They study because of fair of failing not to learn something. Students also have not much time to learn some new things for enhancing their skills. So in our country, the Education minister have to need to do some changes in our education system which helps us to achieve our dreams.

According to me, not an examination but the examination system is killing the education.

1. Parents are pressuring there children to compete with other which create stress, pressure on students.

2. Most of the school, colleges do not take interest in the practical exam they fulfil minimum requirements of the practical exam. And give more pressure on the theoretical exam which gives negative feedbacks about the practical exam to the student.

3. Every student has some special character or talent but they are judged by the same parameter.

4. Marks are getting more value in companies than practical knowledge which brings low confidence in fresher.

5. You can take the example of IIT exam there are total 10000 seats but for that, around 1500000 students give exam means if you see the ratio of the student then out of 100 only 0.6 students get selected. So what about the others? It is in our hand to change this system.

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.

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 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.

Exams have not killed the education but the Indian education system is responsible for killing of education. In foreign countries education system is different and the mode of education is also different and students are enjoying it. But in our country, it is totally different from students are not focused on understanding but they are memorising.

And a common effect faced is conceptually weak and this leads to unemployment.

It has not killed students because This is a practice which makes our mind stable. It also judges that how much knowledge we have gained in a particular year. Through examination we can check our knowledge, strength. We can know our mistakes and work on it. If there would be no examination then students might not study hard. Even if we are habitual of studying just one day before of examination.

I don't think that examination has killed.

The students are examined by the exams. Exams are to know that the student has understood the concept or not. We think that exams are killing the student as there is a lot of pressure of parents and competition among the students. So, see yourself level to give your best in the examination to score good marks in paper according to your level.

So, examination not kills the student but there is only strees to release it we should take rest.

I think we should not take stress for examination. Examination is held in every school after 6 months and finals after every year. This practice make minds stable. If we study side by side and listen to lectures nicely then their is no worry about exam. I think who kill themselves are not stable by their mind or they are not interested in the subject they choose. They should see there career a bright future ahead. So I conclude we should not take stress. And enjoy examination and revise side by side.

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.

So the conclusion is that getting knowledge is a good thing but getting knowledge with moral values is the best thing.

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. In school, if students are only taught the lessons and if there will be no any examination then how can a teacher judge whether the subject what he has taught is clear to all the students or not. Students are in the regular practice of study due to examination and they remain in touch with the subject.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
