A JSC exam script: Dangerous if honest, alarming if in jest
To even the most uninformed of people, it comes as no surprise that the literacy rate in Bangladesh is annually increasing. Each year, JSC, HSC, and SSC results boast pass rates that break all previous records. The once prestigious GPA-5 has become almost as common as pass rates in the past. Golden GPA-5 grades, the highest of all grades, are not scarce either. [caption id="attachment_34419" align="aligncenter" width="552"]01 “Honourable minister, on the first day of our exams, we were assigned a teacher from Narsigndi. He had rebuked me in the exam hall for a negligible mistake. I want justice for this.” Facebook[/caption] Another reads: [caption id="attachment_34423" align="aligncenter" width="960"]“With image of a catalyst, water and mineral salt absorption is described below: Dear Sir, Please accept my humble salutations. I am dreadful in science. So please, please, please, sir, just give me the token mark to pass the exam. Please, The author of this script” “With image of a catalyst, water and mineral salt absorption is described below:
Dear Sir,
Please accept my humble salutations. I am dreadful in science. So please, please, please, sir, just give me the token mark to pass the exam.
Please,
The author of this script” Facebook[/caption] One more read: [caption id="attachment_34427" align="aligncenter" width="960"]04 “Honourable Minister, we are but children. Why burden us with such difficult questions?” Facebook[/caption] A fourth read: [caption id="attachment_34428" align="aligncenter" width="552"]05 “Esyklin is a cow’s head, a goat’s head, things I know nothing about. Illustrating what I don’t know is out of the question” Facebook [/caption] When we consider the current state of our education, truly consider it – by moving past the record-breaking statistics and move to inspect them closely – we can see that education is still force-fed. If the answers were in jest, then it is alarming that students have such little regard for their JSC scripts and respond in a jocular fashion. However, the situation turns dire if it was not a joke, but an honest plea to the education minister. If the student states their inability to comprehend middle school chemistry, physics, and biology, it is not to their discredit. It is the manner in which the education is disseminated. Textbooks are still as outdated and worded as ever. The latest revisions are still persistently bland, and lack the charm to genuinely inspire interest in science. The person who posted the photos refused to disclose the identity of the student who wrote the answers, the teacher who provided the script for perusal, and the board division they were from. The need for anonymity is imperative, but it pales before the state of our education, which can only be summed up as lamentable.
