Pointless world we live in, when things going to change ?
Today’s education system have become based on merit and only merit. The student scoring good marks depends on the number of factors but it may happen that a intelligent student might score a low marks. The marks of a student should not be the only basis to judge his or her intellectual capacity. I personally believe that other measures should also be developed to rate a person capability rather than on just a piece of paper i.e. exam result.
After all we are humans and we need to carry our race together not dividing it. Just imagine a good intelligent student got low marks for any temporary reason, what impact that would it have in his or her whole life.
I think we have advanced enough to make system which can judge a child capabilities. There are endless theories of left and right brain functions but our work culture is hell bent on right side brain merits.
Specially in India if a person scores less in his or her high school, this burden needs to be carried whole life until he or she reaches her grave. It creates a vacuum between the students eventually leading to group-ism, one who are good at scoring and another who just cant understand what is going on !!
Do you agree ?
