Day 121

It has been really long time that I have posted anything in the blog. Last month, I posted only two posts in the blog. Sometimes, it happens that when you are not in mood in spite of having topics to write, you ignore writing. Same thing had happened with me. Well, by not taking much of your time, I would like directly to the topic. Today, I’m going to discuss something which is still in the news and the topic is really debatable. Well, I’m talking about the decision taken by Mr Kapil Sibbal to remove the examination of Class X from schools. Now this is something which is totally unacceptable. He is talking about something which is not effective in the long run.
Mr Sibbal is defending his decision that this will take off the pressure from the students who appears for these exams. But in reality, it’s going to make the matter more worse than its now. This is not going to help the students. And he was talking about the grading system instead of the present percentage system. Now this will totally destroy the merit of the students. Now if we get a look into this then the picture will be something like this.
Generally, Grade A is given to all those students who get more than 70%. Now compare two students who have got 75% and 95%. Now both of them will be in the same grade. Now who will then decide that which student is more intelligent and meritorious in between two students? You can’t differentiate them as both of them are having Grade A. It will kill the motive of studying and hence the spirit of competition will die out.
Now let’s come back to the main point. Mr Sibbal wants to make the Class X board exam an optional exam. Means those students who want to continue in the same school then they will not give the exams. The exams will be for them who want to discontinue from the school. Now this proposal is, also, having disadvantages in it. More and more students will avoid the Class X exams now. They will say that they want to continue in the same school. Then the burden will be there on the school administration to provide the option of other subjects which these students. Not all of them will go to a particular stream. And in the Class XII, again the situation will be worse. Those students who have skipped their Class X exams will not have the exposer to the pattern of exams of CBSE. They won’t be able to cope up and their marks will go down.
So instead of helping the students, Mr Sibbal is playing with the future of all the students of the country who are studying in the schools under CBSE Board. So now, its we, who have to decide that whether we allow this ridiculous pattern or just remain silent and support it and let our coming generation suffer due to this.
