Get set goooo........

Now i am here at that part of the year when i have to sacrifice my sleep and have to struggle more than ever, to get more grades than the previous exam.Since i was a school goer i hated exams and i still do hate exams, i think what is the need to write the exams and if it is necessary to write exams then why should we get grades and marks just a pass or fail would do. I have seen many students who suffer from the exam-phobia, as soon as the exam season starts they start suffering from different illness, most of them are mental illness.There have been reports in the media that the ministry of HRD is planning to remove the grades and marks system. If this type of system is approved then parents will have tough time boasting about their children's grades and achievements. Parents may feel good seeing their child's grades but what goes inside the big school building is known only to the children, i say this grade system is just like the Cast system that was practiced in ancient India. Those who got A is a Brahmin and those who got B would be a little lesser and those who got C or D grade are the down-rotten students or citizens as in the ancient India. Should we abolish this type of Cast system/ bifurcation of students?.

From which school i come is well known in terms of education and sports, but there is this type of bifurcation of students. Students are judged according to the grades he gets and not by his overall activity. And moreover the weaker students never get a chance to showcase their talent let it be in sports or other activities. This way a good sports person is lost. I am tired of writing one exam after another, i am waiting for that time when students are valued of their talent and not of their grades in exams. I dont know how long will it take, but i am waiting...
