We all know about the competitive exams in India. Millions of students prepare for exam to get jobs. Competitive Exams in India is intended for recruiting the suitable candidates for a right job and mainly held for public sector organization.
Competitive exams are a type of examination conducted to test and rank students according to their grades, percentage, or percentile. These exams are mostly conducted at the state or central level. Competitive exams in India are conducted for various fields like engineering, medicine, law among many others.
In India, there are many problems related to competitive exams. Let’s see one by one:
Question Paper leak
One of the biggest problems of the examination. Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in 2018 has to reconduct the exam because of the allegations of leaking the papers of class 10 Mathematics and Class 12 Economics exams.
The student loses faith in system, because of the paper leaks.
Then there will be massive protest whenever such incident happens.
Is it ok if people don’t trust the system?
Delay in examinations and results
The delay in exams and results causes stress among the students. It is understandable that because of covid 19 the exams were delayed. But even if covid19 had not to come, In India the competitive exams dates and results get delayed always. After taking the pre-exam, it often takes years to wait for its results and the dates of the main examination.
Exams like UPSC Civil Services Exam and NEET-PG were delayed by several months.
It seems like students have no value of time in their life! Does the value of so many years of millions of students doesn’t matter?
Because of the technical glitches the exams have been reconducted or it get cancelled. Indian Institute of Management in the year 2009 or the IBPS Clerk Exam, NTA, UGC NET and many online examinations have been reported to have technical glitches.
There have been other incidents like, someone else is giving the exam in place of the actual candidate. Fake Aadhaar cards were used in a prestigious exam like JEE-Mains in Rajasthan in 2019, which was caught due to the caution of supervisors.
Shouldn’t the responsible person be punished?
The lack of accountability of the system is worrisome. The country where millions of people live under the pressure of the competitive exams there should be some accountability in the system.
