In my class,teacher gives us a topic,is exams positive or negative?Most of classrates say that everything has two sides,the existing examination system is not all bad.It certainly has many positive aspects.it can evaluate teachers' teaching level and help students find out their strong and wek points in learning.But its defects is obvious.It is always associated with promotion to a higher grade or admittance to college,so lead to students' heavy study.

There should be some barometer to test the students whether they have learnt something at college/school. So exams are always good, otherwise in the absence of such a system, no body would have taken interest in studying and students would have wastdd their time. As it is there are hundreds of avocation (extra curricular activities are there for them and they devote the full time to it. Also, the marks secured at competitive exams will be the baromter to analyse the capabilities of taking up professions.
