IELTS Essay on Final Examinations

IELTS Essay on Final Examinations


Some educators maintain that final examinations should be replaced with continuous assessment during the term to assess students’ genuine competence.
To what extent do you concur with this point of view?

There are different methods of assessing students during the term. Two of the most controversial ideas are final examination versus continuous assessment during the term. In my opinion each of them has pros and cons based on the circumstances and the aptitude they evaluate.

At first glance, I want to elaborate the decent traits that the educators are supposed to evaluate them. Intelligence is one the most important traits of each pupil. How the learner could perceive, grasp and fully comprehend the lesson they are taught. A higher level of cleverness become apparent when it comes to extend and implement the grasped knowledge into further application. Also using creativity and innovation in any level is a beneficial merit undoubtedly.

On the other hand, There is a trait which deals with tight deadline and how managing to thrive on a strict situation. Unlike the first group, these students are not interested in deep perception of the lessons and try to exploit the most out of it to pass the exam.

Following the above explanations and considering the fact that most of students necessarily do not have both aptitudes simultaneously, I deduce that the first group would succeed in scoring the continuous assessment while the second group would cope well with the final examination. Therefore, If we embrace the proposed concept, the debatable question turned into, which aptitude is more valuable to score. Although, there is another category of ungifted students who put their effort persistently into learning, that may show great achievement in either of examination based on their capabilities.

  1. Racial Discrimination
    The unjust treatment of different people on their race has so strong and long root in the history of human that in some very long periods of history, people, even victims of racial discrimination, regarded it as nature of creation or something beyond societies’ will.
    On of the typical and most important instance about racial discrimination in countries in modern times is south Africa. Like most of other countries in south Africa people in authority believed that white people are superior to people of other races and therefore should be dominant over them. But, the remarkable, strange and surprising point about south Africa was that blacks were the true natives of there and whites were new citizens.
    In south Africa, fight of blacks against dominant white minority, under leadership of Nelson Mandela achieved to its aims and white people were obliged to accept the rights of blacks.
    In conclusion, I think It is worthy to mention that battle of human against Discrimination started from beginning of creation and will remain part of human responsibility for far future, even will lasting forever.
