Board Exams for Class 11 in Tamil Nadu – A Good Idea?

The very premise that students will study and teachers will teach only if there is a board exam is RIDICULOUS.

Forget the question of whether we need the newly introduced XIth Std board exams inTN. Do we actually need such teachers and students?

Here are some good points for and against this decision.

If you ask me, we don’t even need an education system which drives students towards mugging up/memorizing the course content, vomit it verbatim, and clear their exam papers in “flying colours”.

Until we work on an understanding-based/practical-oriented curriculum right from Class I and stop the scramble to obtain “lucrative” engineering/medical college seats that promise riches irrespective of the students’ aptitudes and interests, it won’t matter even if there are board exams for all twelve years starting from Class I.

Until then, we will keep producing useless engineers who don’t have a clue about engineering (me included) and doctors whose only focus will be to maximize their Return on Investment.

We reap what we sow. Karma.

    Congratulations on achieving a significant milestone. A thousand posts is no mean job and that too on varied subjects retaining the interest of readers always sustained.
    Board or no board, examinations or no examinations, what is essential is an understanding of the subject and the concepts. This is lackingand needs to be tightened up.

    I’m indeed with you! There isn’t a need for public exam for 11th if the teachers and school management conduct the course exactly…

    Btw. Congrats once again for crossing 1000 post
