What is your most scary memory? Many people have answered that they found their examinations the most difficult memory of student life. My middle-aged uncle confessed that he still has nightmares about an exam day.
Usually an examination or test is conducted on paper or computers and is used to assess the students' knowledge and skills.
Traditionally, exams were conducted only on rally till 1791, when the first written exam was conducted at Cambridge University, England.
Nowadays, written exams are mainly of three types. First is the 'Free response', wherein the student writes the answer in own language. Next is a 'Multiple choice', where each question provides a number of choices from which the student must identify the correct answer. The third type is the 'True/ False' format wherein student denotes whether a given statement is true or false. While free response type questions can be used to analyze creativity, and language skills of students, it is difficult to evaluate. Use of Multiple Choice type of questions makes evaluation very easy by using a computer. It is difficult to assess knowledge of student just through a 'true/ false' type of exam.
Even when examinations are considered a menace by many because of the stress caused, I feel that it is a necessary evil. Examinations are a part of life. To know our own true worth, we have to pass through such difficulties. Overcoming each examination confirms that we are stronger than we believed ourselves to be.
