Sir, _ Education is the only way to attain prosperity, peace and wealth. But nowadays people think of education as a commodity for buying and selling. As charity begins at home, a nation's destiny begins in the classroom. Education alone can erode ignorance and bring peace, harmony and unity. The mind is the root cause of all evils like destruction, damage and death. Education is the only antibiotic to prevent terrorism and terrorists.
Sir, I find many letters in these columns about memory oriented examinations conducted by the universities. Students who do not attend most of the classes scoring high marks is a clear evidence of defective examination system. Such examinations do not testify to the creative mind of the candidate.
However, efforts should be made to enhance the credibility of our exam system. The question paper should be choice-free. Reappearance of a paper either to pass the subject, or for improvement should not be allowed. At the end of the course, a certificate with class/division can be issued to all candidates based on the grand total marks secured.
