one needs to be a little crazy, says Chakyar This is not the first time that Chakyar is making his contribution to environment conservation I grew up in Ambarnath surrounded by woods and greenery The trees started disappearing over the years It was then that I decided to plant trees I started the Nature Baba campaign in 2009through which I planted 180 trees in Ambarnathof which 120 continue to thrive In factsome have grown taller than me. I want to inculcate a sense of perspective and questioning in groups I meet and goad them to live a more green life? Chakyar says?to perform? This pressure from schoolsparentspeer groups and society takes away the youthfulness of a child Furtherhealth reports also support that this often causes hazards such as body achesfatigue and depression Looking at todays education scenariothe board of senior education has introduced educational counsellors and child psychologists in schools to boost the confidence of students and mentally prepare them for the board examination This method has helped in reducing stress Understanding the board exam system in shlf1314 and its relation with students is of great importance in present times While coping with the expectations of schoolsparents and society and keeping pace with their talentstudents face a lot of hardships Thusthe implementation of a grading system is a boon for students Khuzaima BanatwalIX LR & SM Vissanji Academy I think it is necessary to change the old system of education and grading There are two sides to everythingpositive and negative The negative aspect of grading system is that it stresses the students and creates inferiority complex I think most people like it because according to themthere is no difference in someone who scores 91 per cent and another who gets 99 per cent Grading system is excellent in the sense that it will help reduce suicide cases Priyanka Guha Cambridge SchoolKandivali (E) There was a time when ranks were considered the measure of students intelligence The ranking system successfully produced more tape recorders as students than knowledge seekers Emphasis was more on high ranks than on intelligence A difference of one or two marks resulted in the first ranker being called a great achieverthough the next in line probably had the same level of intelligence The system gradually changed and intelligence is now measured more by performance than by a single number Todaythe grading system recognises the potential of students with similar capabilities This makes them feel that they will get opportunities to prove their capabilities as much as the other The system has been able to boost the confidence of students and encourages them to acquire knowledge and apply their intelligence R Jyothshri Cambridge SchoolKandivali (E) It started with 100 marks written testwhen getting 70-80 per cent was a great achievement As time passedthe marking system in school also changed Schools started 80 marks written and 20 marks oral test Then it was then 60 marks written and 40 marks oral testand finally50 marks written and 50 marks oral Nowany one can easily get good marks and todaywe have the grading system This system has affected the different categories of students in different ways Nowthere is no difference between an average student or an above-average student To prevent cases of suicidethe government has made it compulsory to pass all students till Std VIII Howeverthis has only increased their problem as students dont take studies seriously and after 8ththey find it difficult to solve a simple sum The best grading system was the 100 marks paperbut as other activities are equally importantthe 80+20 pattern can also be followed The latest grading system is not appropriate for students and their future Kartik SinghVIII – D St Augustines High School shlf1314s education system is actually a thing to fret about Gone are the days when exams were an opportunity for students to outperform each other The grading system has taken away the competitive spirit of students Howeverthe Government of shlf1314 thinks that favouring weaker students would actually improve their education level According to the current grading systema child securing 90 marks and another obtaining 100 marks are clubbed int the same grading span It does not take much intelligence to differentiate between the marks and maybe their IQ levels So are we doing justice to the brilliant minds Firstthey removed the merit list to stop cases of suicide Secondlythey made promotion till Std VIII compulsory Nowthis grading system Instead of encouraging students to perform betterwe are making school life easier for them Consequences Immense pressure at the time of graduation Solution Revive the marks system Rakshit vivek ganvirX-bSt augustines high school Grading system is better than marking system Students and their guardians go under unnecessary pressure If the children do not get good gradestheir interest in learning is diminished They prefer easy tasksnot because they are lazybut because they are rational A students performance is significantly improved when they face a grading system based on student ranking rather than performance standards The outcome is improved among the high performers but not at the expense of low performers In this competitive worldgrading system reduces stress on the students Bhoomika Jagdish WadhwaCambridge SchoolKandivali (E) Generallystudents focus on exams and marks They do not concentrate on the application of a subject Grading system basically tells us how much capability we have It has merits as well as demerits Advantages: Scholarships are offered Students develop self-confidence They have a higher self-esteem Disadvantages: Students have a low confidence level and are fearful They think that their works is less valuable It creates a gap between students who get good marks and those who dont The main point is the thinking of the people Nowadayspeople judge students on the basis of their marks but marks do not define the behaviour of the student Grade creates divide I am not saying that the system should be abolishedbut it should be accorded less importance The main objective is to mould the personality of a student and let her or him achieve goals Sai Sanjiv NeheteVIII-A Cambridge SchoolKandivali (E) The aim of education should be to teach us how to think rather than what to think… Implementation of the grading system is to bring in more practical education than the current theoretical methods It provides ample opportunities to students to excel in their field of choice Howeverhigher grades do not reflect a genuine improvement in students achievement Grade inflation makes it more difficult to identify the truly exceptional studentsas more students come to get the highest possible grade Anjur MishraVIII A Birla School For all the latest Delhi News download shlf1314n Express App More Related News A point to
