Do you like the exams to be finished in one go or being spread across weeks and monthsThis thread is prompted by the exam schedule of my niece. She is appearing for the SSLC(Tenth standard) exams of the Kerala State Education board. The exams started in March-end. It is still continuing and is expected to end by April end only. When I glanced at the exam timetable, I found that for some of the subjects there is a week gap.
Though it may be of some help for those who had not studied or prepared well and have time to do last-minute compensation, I think there can be two opinions on this. During my student days, I was always looking for the exams to start and finish in one go without a gap. Later, as a parent too, I had the same view. Mostly those days the exams used to be over by March 31st and vacation used to begin on April First.
I would like to know the views of members both from the viewpoint of students as well as parents.
