Malegaon: After the UPSC, IEEE and AIEEE results, the HSC results are also out and in few days from now the results of the students who had appeared for the SSC exams held in March 2009 will also be in their hands. These results, bringing cheers for some and gloom for some others, would also bring an end to the year-long struggle, legitimate as well as illegitimate, for scoring more and more in the coveted exams. Also would come to an end the unnecessary pressure and burden on the students who were living with the dilemma of how they would face their parents, and the world, if they scored not at par with the expectations.


Nevertheless as a breather for these students, experts are coming to near unanimity to assert that though scoring in the exams is important, they cannot be treated as the benchmark for judging a particular student.


“We have seen many students who scored well in the SSC and HSC exams faltering when it comes to perform in the later phase of their career”, says Anamika Gupte, a career expert working with a private firm, simultaneously warning the parents of dire impact on the psychology of their kids if they mount unnecessary pressure on them for scoring in the exams.


 “People don’t need professionals who are just good in academics. They look for the professionals with all-around development and with those extra qualities”, she says adding, “This has been proven time and again that a student who is not so good in scoring in the exams has performed well in the later stages of his or her career.”


Gupte is not alone in this out of box thinking. Stating that the education system around the globe has gone through a major revolution, Dr Yusuf Ansari, a professor in a prominent Malegaon College observes, “This has made some people in the country to shift towards experiential learning methodologies and other teaching methods which are capable of the overall development, and the assessment, of every student. However in many schools and colleges in the country the idea is not yet getting popularity and the focus there still remains on just getting good percentage of passing in the exams.”


“We really need to focus on the overall development of a student instead of ‘dumping knowledge’ (read information) on them and then judging their caliber from their scores in the exams”, a senior teacher requesting anonymity says while agreeing with the experts. “But as a school management works on the framework and guidelines by the respective education boards, it cannot do this. It is the duty of the education boards to take the initiatives in this regard”, he adds.


Let the education boards take their own time in taking the initiatives, advices Anamika Gupte, right now the onus is on the parents to work out the priorities for their children. “It would be the best if one does it at the beginning of the academic year itself”, she adds.
