COMPETITION

I love learning , but I hate competition.
Education is victimised by it. It keeps on stabbing your desire to learn and work for the sake of it till you give up. Is there NO way out????????????

I mean does it make no difference that you worked , that you enjoy a subject , that you are honest, that you are sincere -marks are so cruel sometimes . So cold and unbearable. What right does anyone have to tell you that efforts are as worth as a nil when you know its not true?

Is it never going to be possible to just learn and love it?
But well laziness may set in if you have no fear.....
But surely there is a better system of balance possible?

Nice one !!!
If we study for learning then why to think about marks and care for someone's evaluation ....
and if marks matters then why to hate competition .....

Marks should measure our performance relative to ourselves...why can't education be so positive that it never discourages but always makes feel that you do have worth and you are learning?

true,
sometimes the evaluation system leaves us hating the subject rather than increasing are enthu in it, while its meant for the other way round.
positive results do encourage us, but bad ones piss us off even though we like to go deep into a subject and love it too..

So true!But are we weak characters in making results decide our likes and dislikes?
