Examinations are not limited to school days, where students have to answer question papers successfully to get to the next level in the academic field. Even after you graduate, examinations continue to haunt you because the world is an examination hall.
Right from our childhood, we have to write exams to prove our capabilities in order to proceed to the next level. From kindergartens to universities, we have verbal and written exams that test our skills in a number of subjects like English, Mathematics, Science, to name a few.
During college and university days, students are given projects, in which their analytical and presentation skills are tested. In tertiary education level, apart from written exams, communication skills are also tested to prepare students for the working world.
Upon graduation from the university, a student has to tackle a job interview, which is also an examination. This is the first time that a student faces examinations in the working world. During the interview, a candidate is tested on the skills that will impact his career. The interviewer will ask questions to ensure that the candidate fits well with the corporate culture of the organization.
Once a job is secure, an employee has to face examinations on a daily basis. His performance at work is an examination in itself. Every day, an employee’s productivity and quality of work is tested and it is the basis on which he is either promoted or demoted.
Apart from the fields of education and career, there are unspoken examinations in the area of relationships. When you are out on a date, your partner is constantly judging you if you are the right person for him/her. Similarly, in India, where the culture of arranged marriages is in place, a girl has to undergo an examination before she is chosen as a bride.
Those who follow the spiritual path feel that life itself is an examination, in which the examiner is God himself. There are challenges that we have to face every day, which are small examinations that we have to pass in order to be successful in life.
Examinations are not limited to examination halls and schools. Outside the academic field, there are a number of examinations that an individual has to pass in order to reach the next level. Life itself is an exam and each passing day is an indication of our hard work and determination to make the most of our lives.
