Petition Abolish Board Examinations in education

Examinations in schools and colleges often lead to students experiencing a lot of stress due to the pressure to revise and succeed. This can cause mental health problems. People should not be forced through pages of useless questions to get a job based on a letter or a number. We are more than just numbers and letters.

More details

People should get jobs based on their ability to do the job rather than an examination result. Theory based education does not work and testing people on pen and paper doesn't work. Practical based education must be the way forward so that students can learn about the specific workplace they want to be in. Students should be assessed practically on what they can and cannot do to better help them get a job rather than put them through stress and anxiety trying to remember useless information.
Abolish all examinations!
