Education for Life
Unlocking the value of education beyond
classroom walls into real life
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ― Albert Einstein
Webinar 9 – The Exam Story
Examinations are a major part of a student’s life. However, students are not a big fan of them.
In fact, it is a source of stress for majority of students due to several reasons.
Family pressure to score cent percent marks.
Having to study the subjects they don’t particularly enjoy or understand.
And the pressure to perform well to be in the good books of teachers.
All or few of these are a source of motivation to score well in examinations.
And this is the sad truth of our education system.
Students should want to perform well in exams because exams are an indicator of their learning — how much they have learned and how much they have understood.
Why is this not the source of motivation? Why we focus on marks and grades, but not on learning?
To address this dilemma and to enable our students, teachers and parents to take a new approach towards examinations, we are organising a webinar called The Exam Story.
This is the 9th webinar from our Education for Life webinar series. You can find the recordings of all the previous webinars here.
Join us on 25 February, 2023 at 5:00 PM (IST) to listen to our panellists explore this subject at length. This would be a timely discussion with exams just around the corner and the wrapping of the much anticipated and highly successful event Pariksha Pe Charcha, organised by PM Modi.
Register now and get the chance to interact with education leaders and experts and discuss with them the role and meaning of exams in today’s education system and how we should be approaching them.
