Making sense of admission exams
An acquaintance of mine who passed all her public exams with a GPA 5 did not succeed when it came to the entrance tests of major universities. Whom should one blame? I cannot suggest that she resorted to ill means in all her public exams. So, why did she fail the admission exams?
She did not resort to coaching because it would be financially stressful for her family. But why should coaching be necessary for one to do well in entrance tests in the first place?
In my opinion, the entrance exams of universities should reflect the knowledge students are supposed to get from the SSC and HSC levels. Otherwise, there is a risk that one's years of hard work in school and college will be in vain.
