Examination they say is often conducted to test the ability of students but now days the world has changed and they so called testing of ability of students is no longer what it serves today but instead it now serves as a room where enemity is being created,people or rather students now see themselves as competitors which ordinary should not be as it was used to measure the intelligence capability of those in the older generation.today there are talent scattered here and there and if these students who on a daily are being taken aback from reaching their career goals as a result of this exams which tends to make one move totally from achieving ones goal. Academics shouldn't be seen as only a place where people go to be the best in just probably cramming or struggling without getting the main priority which is to learn how to survive in life. This olden tradition of setting exams for students should be made away with, school is meant to be a place where the younger ones are taught on how to live a successful life style both in character and discipline,not just attitude but in the overall behavior of them and not just to go and get immersed in his or her books. In most schools exam is one of the only occasion where students do come out en mass to write it show to the school government that it belongs to the academic discipline,so many things have been abandoned by some students who were equally into other things than what or the normal schooling that that they re doing.
Now academic which is championed by examination which inturn instigate fear into the body of it's participants have really felt with people who had a nice vision,lol"vision breaker",so many people put all there bags into one basket which is education in the hope or with the hood if getting employed to work in big firms,and they only way advisable to get this done is by giving everything you have to your academic and by so or in so doing so many people or students have lost there focus in life thinking that academic is the only way out. School should be seen as a place where people gather to help one another out and also to help put things in order.so many dreams have been left in shackles because of the quest to write exams which in real life has nothing to offer to people. Now exam is again around the corner in most universities in the country and students once again are going extra mile to make sure that they come out with a better grade,there are even some peolle who started to read the moment school resume thereby make ng there entire stay in school a boring one,so many first class students who played through this path are out there in the streets,at the market place,at their homes doing little or nothing to make ends meet. Definitely academy is good but the need and the reason for it has been changed over time. Those in authority should be made to look for other alternative on his to better the life of students on campus.
Having been a student,I know what it feels like for one to get prepared for exam,now to show that the school does not really care about the welfare of students in life,it has made it mandatory to punish students by sending them to a place where on a normal day no matter how conducive the place is,they wouldn't be allowed to stay and learn other than exams. Students learn in tight corners,under the scorching sun and at the end of the day those halls that would have been used to deconjest then would be used to test there ability which is very bad.students as a result of these,so many persons are left on there own without a counselor to help them note there area of choice and the level of life they would want to operate from.
The issue of using examination to put fear into the body of students should be brought to an abrupt end as many who were doing well in there cares or area of life has ogine back to zero or rather begining to the exam stress has been.
