Now, the competition would start among students scoring more than 100% marks! It is becoming meaningless.
'Nayak nahin; Khalnayak hoon main' (I am not the hero; I am the villain)
Now the situation is entirely different. There are students who are scoring 100% even in language papers also. There are no minus marks for spelling mistakes and grammar mistakes.
But when we go into the actual strength of the student, we feel astonished. Many of these corporate institutions are making the people byheart the subject and reproduce in the examinations. But they never have any grip on the subject and they are not able to apply the subject learned anywhere in the field.
There should be a change in the system. More importance should be given to the understanding of the subject rather than reproducing the matter.
This results in too many students at the top level that forces the colleges to has a high cut off marks or have their own entrance exams for UG courses. The other problem would be the allure of such high marks in CBSE that would attract more and more students and parents. This would adversely impact the other boards and they would also have to resort to such practices of 'mark ups' to keep their enrolment numbers high.
What is even worrisome would the impact of such high scores falsely boosting up the confidence of the students who could potentially struggle in the UG course and further studies.
Knowledge is power.
