What a score! Pun intended.

So, I have finished my first term exams. I have something very interesting to share with you guys.

When we accuse someone of malpractice while writing an exam, we must always look at the different dimensions of the problem. Below are my opinions on this topic.

The education system values grades over authenticity, answers over curiosity, knowledge over life and so on. You cannot prescribe the same syllabus and impose the same rules on people with different capacities, different issues and different dreams.

Study geography. Can you name at least 10 countries in Africa?

Study history. Can you tell me how the world war has effected us?

Study biology. Can you give me 3 tips on how to be healthy and fit?

Study math. Who is the father of mathematics?

Study economics. Which country will be the leading economy by 2050?

These are just a few examples. We stress on the fact that marks will define the knowledge you possess but let me tell you- Knowledge is priceless. You cannot put a price on such a divine possession.

Most of what we learn in school and college is theory that we cannot apply to our real life. Why do we learn then? Is the education system a failure even today?

Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

-Albert Einstein

If you love a subject and wish to know everything about it, you’ll never cheat during exams. It’s a fact. If malpractices are increasing today, it is because we have failed to provide students with the ability to think, analyse, dream, love and be who they are.

We’ve compelled everyone to think, analyse, dream and live in the same way refraining them from not only being creative but also embracing their unique identity.

I’ve written a this piece because the uniform code of conduct in schools and colleges all over India infuriates me to the core of my heart. We identify people by their marks and position in class and not as individual human beings. This should stop. I’m not justifying cheating during exams but I’m just giving a different perspective. Everything that happens has a reason. Please feel free to share your views and opinions in the comments below.

The other reason I titled this post ‘What a score’ is because I’ve achieved 500 followers on my blog Fantasy Life. Is it defining myself on the basis of my followers? Maybe, I’m a hypocrite๐Ÿ™‚ but I appreciate people who genuinely read my posts, like them and share their thoughts with me. It’s a wonderful platform to grow and help others grow too. I hope I’ll learn more and be able to present quality content here, on my blog.

Time to celebrate! I have arranged for a blog party next Monday! All of you are invited. I want as many people as possible participating and making a difference.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day:)

  1. I have to say I agree with your outlook Rageshree. Even when we admit such failures in our education systems exist. We as students are not bale to invoke change in cheating by our peers. I do believe we need to push governments to change what is going on. I really do know you made me think back to a long time ago. I pray things change in India my good friend. Thanks for the invite to your blog party next Monday I accept to attend.

  2. Congrats for the score 500, the cheating in exams shows fatal error in performance once they out of school, it’s base of country’s economy professionalism and status we can see that in today’s ranking of universities in global trend we exists no where and students suffer one who cheats one who cares to win both. No one wants to advance and every one wants to shine no where. It takes infinet time to refine the loop holes as policy makers are also came from the same cheating background mostly and whom to blame when and where….. God also can’t answer. It’s an epidemic mostly and a fatal error.

    1. I totally agree with what you’re saying. It’s a huge flaw in our education that is gonna effect the economic development. The authorities should make it their responsibility to help students gain awareness about the modern world. Thank you for sharing your viewsโ™ฅ๏ธ
