We hear a lot about examination these days. Some people say that examinations have become force. The students use unfair means during the examinations. They take guides with them, copy from them. If they are caught they quarrel with the supervisory staff. Some college students carry knives with them to frighten the supervisor. Before 1947, the numbers of examinations were less. The cases of copying were also small. But now in some centers there is mass copying. Some teachers are also a party to copying.
Examinations are not a sure test of one’s ability. The questions asked test only the memory of the student’s inspite to test their intelligence. There are people who want that examinations should be stopped. Others are in favor of day-to-day assessment. Some say that final examinations should have less mark. There should be internal assessment by teachers
