:: Ending March ::

And so, with the completion of the exams, another chapter closes.
I hate examinations.
Why is there a need to have us tested and ranked?
Just a day ago, a few of us raised our concerns with the format of the exam.
"What's the point of having an exam that makes the student with the best memory the best student?" many echoed.
"What do you suggest then," our facilitator retorted.
The problem with exams is that they are usually too quantitative, but not qualitative.
How do we gauge the effectiveness of a leader, or a manager?
By how well he is able to answer multiple choice questions?
Even via feedback from peers, are we really able to glean enough?
The moment everyone knows that everyone will be graded and classified
Everyone becomes templated; learning stops.

Lots happening lately.
If only I have the time and am articulate enough to put it all down.
