Tougher the exam gets, the better it is for the studious studentsSome of you might be hearing this phrase for the first time while others, especially the ones who frequently encounter competitive exams, would be quite familiar with it.
I never understood this concept completely. Can someone explain it?
Some say that tougher exams are best for selecting the cream of the lot. But wouldn't a student who tops the tough exam, top the easier one as well? A student who secures 90% in an easy examination might end up scoring only around 75% in the tough one. But doesn't this reduction affect every student, irrespective of whether he is topper or not?
All that a difficult exam does according to me, is to increase the fears in the minds of students.
So, what is your take on this? Do you believe in such a concept?
