It is generally accepted that conducting periodic examinations for young learners in schools is simply preparing them to overcome life challenges in their later life .Having said that ,I am of the idea that having a great future doesn’t merely depend on the frequency of academic tests they have completed during school education for two reasons and I am going to discuss them with supporting evidence.
Moving into the first and foremost reason why I believe that a vast majority of exams do not tend be proper ways of measuring students’ academic progress , these examinations seem to be targeted at just theoritical knowledge rather than practical skills which mostly require for the students to be able to make connections with fundamental theories ..Evidently ,schools are more likely to ignore the necessity of being skilled at practical experiences of education which help pupils to get better at tertiary education at universities. Nevertheless,one of the most
irreversible damages which bring about by current education system is that they literally diminish the creativity of students which downgrades their academic performance which in turn could weaken their career profiles in adulthood.Take grading exams at schools as an example.These sorts of tests divert young learners from their original path of learning, turning them into” mechanical robots” which cram for exams in order to get a good grade and it will not assist them to manage their working or personal life in later years of life. All above reasons simply justify how exams kills student’s creativity and the way hands on experiences are being ignored.
Apparently, it can be a good practice for young children to have exams at regular intervals which could leads to certain degree of success in terms of preparing high level of examinations at university levels while repetitive exams could overcome fears of sitting examinations up to a certain level. However, it is obvious that sitting frequent exams are not nearly as successful as developing creativity and skills levels in practical areas of education.
To sum up, I am strongly convinced that even though sitting regular exams in young classes could hold student’s success up to a certain point ,paying more attention to the practical side of education and preparing students to boost their imagination could create a better person for their adult life in terms of work opportunities and personal life endeavours.
Very nice writing Deepika. Great vocabulary: “periodic examinations”, “first and foremost reason”, “overcome life challenges”, “merely depend on”, “vast majority”, “measuring students’ academic progress”, “be able to make connections”, “fundamental theories”, “tertiary education” … these kind of collocations will increase your score for lexical resource.
3 Tips for you.
1. Don’t leave a space before commas or full stops. (do leave a space after a comma or full stop)
2. You don’t need to say “I am going to discuss them with supporting evidence.” in your introduction.
3. Be very careful about understanding the exact question you are being asked. Your first body paragraph says “Moving into the first and foremost reason why I believe that a vast majority of exams do not tend be proper ways of measuring students’ academic progress”, but the question does not ask about whether exams are a good way to measure academic progress. The question asks whether exams prepare students for post-school life. All the same, very interesting ideas and well written answer.
