I have tried my level best to throw a little light upon the aspect that why students use to fail in the exams and I have put some specific reasons and a bit of their solution.
Basically students come to the school to learn about the basic characters and good habits and to know all the necessary points to have a happy, successful life. But often we think that students come to the school or college or any institution to pass the exam, and the teachers are there to prepare the pupils for these exams. This is not wrong at all, because through these exams, we prepare students to deal with the incoming threats and challenges of life. This is all, we teach them or they learn from us. So, it’s necessary for the students to pass in the exams. But in each and every institution, we see and notice, the result is not 100%, it means not all the students are passed. In short, there may be different numbers of the passed or failures students in different times or places. Similarly, there may various reasons for the failures students. Some are the following:
- Students couldn’t concentrate because of some reasons.
- Student didn’t prepare the exam.
- Exam question was confusing, the student couldn’t follow it.
- Exam was not related to the given knowledge.
- Exam time was short.
- Student lacks the knowledge.
First of all we will check the number of the failing student. If only a few students are fail then there the fault of their own and there may be the first two reasons. Rather the student couldn’t concentrate due so some anxiety, illness or any other disturbance. Now the class teacher should try to find, where the problem Exist. In this case he/she should do his best to help his pupil to overcome the problem. May be there just a minimum important factor that can only be solved by a fruitful discussion with the student.
If, maximum student fail to attempt the exam then we should concentrate on the last four reasons. In case of reason no. 3, you should try to give the sample question, the inner vision to the student to understand the question well and try to make the facility in the examination hall to read or discuss the question for better understanding. You may also provide the previous question papers to the students to be familiar with the question type or understanding.
If, exam was not related to the given knowledge, then concentrate on your lectures, syllabus and compare it thoroughly with the exam question. Next time, taught the students according to their all needs along with the exam needs or make the exam question according to the syllabus you have taught.
There may also be the short time reason. If, this one is, then it’s means your exam question was lengthy. It’s a very big fault in the exam paper. So try to compete it for the next time by comparing the length of the answer of your question, student’s level and ability and the time you have give to solve the exam.
Finally, if student fails due to his low level of knowledge or lack of knowledge, it may leads towards
- His own negligence in the classroom during the lecture,
- Teachers fault to deficiency in conveying his lecture in better way.
So, try to redeliver the lecture to overcome the previous problems. Actually this is a wide topic and obviously there may exist several other problems, reasons and solutions but, I hope it will give you some basic knowledge or help you in competing with these problems.
