A score is necessary because,

* It is used as a measure of the performance index.

According to My Opinion Winning is Not Permanent, and Failure is Not final So, Play a game To know your ability not to Judge your fate, People love winners.
So Everyone trying To Win, Failures teach you How to Win.
* It helps the player to compare their performance and encourages them to perform better.
* Awarding prizes and medals to the highest scorer motivates him and encourages other players.
* Prizes can be awarded only if the scoring system is there.
* In the absence of a scoring system no player will take the pain to perform better.

Winning is not important. Because in the game there are two, one wins and another one is loose. If we give our best then we get the results good. Looser is not looser always because we will get some lessons from that. We will study those mistakes. Any way mistakes are stepping stones for our future.

Winning and losing both are the part of the game. We have to accept both equally. Winning one game will not decide that you will win all the games like this losing will also not decides you are a looser. So, trying hard and hard we can improve our skills that makes a man perfect.

Yes, I agree "winning isn't everything but we can't ignore that after wining how we feel. Winning a game increase our confidence, level, personality. Based on that one can't be judged on his/her performance throughout life. Scores show the areas to develop and finally, at one day we will also be a winner. This is true as the two complements of the world like light and dark, true and false etc but they both are made for any reason. So what I think here is competition is something which is needed to judge an individual and his mental ability as well. Also, it tells us how confident one is in handling a situation.

Yes, Of course, winning isn't everything. By keeping the sores, you can know your capability. Once you know that, keep working on it and increases it day by day. Just work hard to increase your skills and your talent not for the victory because victory is temporary, if you take that seriously, it will always become a burden on you. So when you won in something don't take that seriously that gives you the pressure of winning all the things which will be in the next. The same comes to losing as.

Well if you lost, don't feel that the whole world is crushing on you. Just chill. Keep working on your skills. The most important thing is don't let others estimate you, you only know what you are capable of. Take a deep breath and start again. Winning or Losing doesn't matter. Your dedication and hard work, passion and love towards the work which you are doing is important.

Hi guys.

At first, we need to understand that Score is like a target we need to run towards that. Winning isn't everything, but we need to keep the Score.

That tells the person where they stand in the team. In the team, the person who scored more than others should not think that he is the best or No. 1 why not someone would be there like competition.

Yes you are right winning is not everything but putting effort at the ultimate level and showing the capabilities of the winner is everything. Just similar to the life we have to keep going.

Let us take an example if suppose I gave an exam and the results are out and they only gave the list of qualified and the non-qualified without giving their scores individually without any marks this is where the problem lies if suppose I didn't qualified for the exam I will not know my scores and will not know where I am lacking in my exam Conversely if suppose the scores are given then I can easily understand where I am lacking and will put extra efforts in those areas and will try to qualify in my exam. So according to me, Scores must be definitely given irrespective of the results.

Yes, winning isn't everything but it starts new beginning it may be in sport or job.

If a cricket team needs a huge total to chase and winning a match and all batsmen failed to score but still the match goes till the end may be a new player can show skill and talent in the match even in losing cause there is always some positive. Life is not always about winning there is more than winning.

Exactly winning is not everything. But putting efforts to show your capabilities to the ultimate level defines the winner. Every field is competitive and only a person's competencies define his or her level for the particular field. So, to define a winner, organisations conduct exams to look forward to the skilful and competitive workforce. Hence, the score is a must to define a winner.
