GRE Essay Topic 224 - Present your perspective on the issue below, "Competition for high grades seriously limits the quality of learning at all levels of education."
HIgh Grades Or The Quality Education?
The Very First thing for a change in anyone’s life is learning, The more we learn ,the more we develop ourselves. It was advent from the time of the Primitive “The Early man”,we have changed a lot from the previous ages to now with more innovative ideas and drastic changes ,which have evolved from educating.Ever person had their own level of educating themselves, In the modern ages it was evidenced that Measuring the level of learning is essential, Due to many parameters like Admissions,assessment of the pupil etc.
In modern period of time it was very common that people are drawn under the grading system,enabling the measure of the content they study,I agree that one should be aware about what he studies,but at the same time he should also be aware that applying the knowledge is also as important as he studies it.Grading is done on the basis of the content he exhibits during the exams, We can say that the exams and grades might not properly assess the learning standards of a person,but we can say that Competition for grades never limit the learning levels of a person.Because some people might have a trouble in presenting their skills in the examinations,but few people who get good grades are also good learners
Another thing that we have to keep in our mind is that same pattern of learning is not provided in all the levels of education,it varies from time to time as we go for higher studies the intensity of the interested topics increase ,i.e people take down their interesting subject as a field of study,which eventually makes more dedication for a person towards it,so there is an intensified classification of the subject which some times is interrelated and it would not be possible to earn a good grade if he misses a topic and other thing is a person can better know about his strengths and weaknesses by his grades, he can try to improve them ,which will not be Possible without knowing where he was weak .
So from the above we can conclude that competition for grades never limit the learning,Indeed it improvises a person to become better in the field where he was loose in his grip towards the subject
