Our examination system was formulated by british people who wants clerk to run their administration.In all years a student do not learn anything how to earn for their bread and butter.Who has formulated this rules that if a student under circumstances cannot come to exam hall ,he will have to wait for another 12 months most precious years of youth of his life.They can be asked to submit project, sumit journals of their work,Exams can be taken at regulary at 3 months time or to be arranged at any time when student says i am ready,in that case student will miss only three months or if appear in mid three month on his own,he can prepare for next semester .Again TV can be used for medium of insruction in lieu of lectures at college and university can appoint professionalguides with whom student can work as apperntice for few hours in a weekat nominal stipend

Examinations are not the real tests of intelligence, individual skill and competence....; it's merely a memory test...., our education system is just ''filling a student's head with a lot of disjointed facts poured as into a basket to be emptied out again in the examination room, and the empty basket carried out again into the world.'' hence, marks obtained is not the deciding factor in evaluating the real worth of the student...., the student who has a better memory passes and the other who doesn't but otherwise more intelligent fails.......

the entire system of education in india in fact needs a radical change with its means of evaluation and judgement.............

Its necessary for any kind of evaluation be it an exam, test, interview, a project/task, etc. This ensures that people who dont meet certain starndards are not given the certificate. Failing doesnt mean its an end and indicates permanent incapability - see a person could fail but he/she then knows their weaknesses -works on improvement then could pass on the next attempt. Here again a person is failed becuase he/she does not meet the minimum requirements (forget good scores or excellence). If the person is passed then he/she will not have the required pre-requisits for the next level (say next class in school or next semester in college).
In case the student repeatedly fails either he/she has some unique problem or personal issues that need to be solved or the person is not suited for the course and needs to consider alternative courses, vocations or professions depending on his/her skills and knowledge. And in some cases strengthening of basic knowledge and skills may be required b ...more
