During my school days, India we had a 'assessment system' which was partially controlled by professors who taught us the subject. The system is, 50% of assessment completely determined by professors based on several factors,open ended. Out of 100,one have to write theory for 50 marks and other 50 would be determined by professor and in order to get pass,one have to score 45. So most of students have to please professors to get good marks, literally professors were god for them. If they able to convince professors,they literally scored pass mark and theory is just for formalities. As expected, everyone hates this, but no one can ask any questions, some students even worked for professors "other means" to get high scores. But i used to musing this system, why our educators promoted this model, why we are following such a stupid model, but the answers were fascinating, i was literally cried after cracked this model.Here are my finding when i was in college.
- Education system in Indian completely helping students, parents and potential employers an early alarm systems rather than concrete implementation of subjects.
- If a student is unable to get high marks from his/her professors but scores high in other exams, then he/she may be a showing 'leadership' skills. He/she bold in front of authority and he/she ask questions and challenge the status quo.Great for leadership,self-employment and driving force.
- If a student scores both low then he/she had some attitude as well as IQ issues.
- If both high then she/he more likely going to work for a company long time,excellent worker class.
