Hi ,

This is one topic which, i think, is very important nowadays in context of the school going kids. 'Marks', for which students end up exceeding all limits of what is called being "sane". They get all night, skip meals, take pills and after all this, if they do not get good marks, they can even commit suicide! But one question keeps cropping up in my head that do these tests really measure a person's intelligece?

Do post your views.

depends what exam you are giving.. If its an IIT/CDAC... entrance surely it will measure intellect.. but if its like college final for 10th, 12th, Bcom, Bsc...BA...LLB....etc no intellect there a lot of sweating though...so you can measure intellect as balti's of sweating ..LOL..some of the others like entrance for mba can be handled through learning... so not really too big a deal..from intellect standpoint...

marks can never measure intellect of a person. sometimes when we revise too much for our exams we somehow forget things while doing tests. not all people are smart in study but they are intellect in other things. a intellect person is not always the person who gets good marks. even some parents forget to encourage their children when the children get less marks. i agree that tests has always been there to test a child's intellect but sometimes the pressure of test is too much and even intellect people who get high marks get low marks.

i think there are two possibilities here. either she cant be bothered about studies and gets low marks, or she studies hard and still gets low marks. if it's the latter, then she must be some kind of duffer. i mean, cant you get good grades even by shooting pool all nite? Wink if she doesn't study much, then again it could mean one of two things. either she is drop-dead gorgeous and knows she can marry a great guy or she is flat-out ugly. if it's the latter, then again she's stupid. not very intelligent to be not studying when u're ugly, is it? if it's the former, then she's a very evolved person. she knows what makes the world go round and has her priorities set right. guy cant help but respect such a gal's mind, in fact be in love with a mind like hers. Wink hope this helps. Tongue LOL

First doubt..this question is generally asked when we get less marks...... LOL
when we get more marks we don't bother about this issue...
however..I asked this question several hundred times from KG to PG LOL
one more thing..when we get less marks...the possible reason we cite to our parents...."the question paper is tough"...when we get high marks..the possible answer to the parents is ."I really worked hard"..
However..marks matter..but marks alone don't matter...
