Examinations

Essay Writing Topics for High School and College Students

 Examinations
Examination is examination whether it is the worldly examination or the examination in the world hereafter. A student is well aware of this word and he knows what examination is.
Examinations are conducted by different ways. The method is regulated by the intellectual development of students and by the subjects. In general, there are three broad principles according to which Examinations are held. These result in the three classes of examinations, oral or viva voce, written and practical.
First of all there are oral examination. They are confined to tender boys, who are just beginners and whose intellectual capacity and ability are not so far advanced as justify a written examination. In certain exceptional cases advanced students are subjected to an oral, or as they are better known, viva voce examinations. In such cases these examinations are designed to test the thoroughness of a student's knowledge in a branch.
The second way of examination is written. The method of holding examinations is by far the most widely adopted. Questions are set and put into writing and the students have similarly to put down their answers in writing. There is a fixed period of time in which the questions have to be answered. This method of examination affords students the maximum amount of opportunity to think over their answers. In this way they can show their best ability.
Practical examinations are usually held in scientific subjects. They have their own importance. They make the students study properly. It is an examination which supplies the motive force to the general bulk of students to have a thorough knowledge of the subjects in which they are to be examined. Otherwise, no body would bother about his studies.
