Challenging the Education System: Skill Assessment vs. Academic Curriculum
This 17-year-old non-medical student from Delhi aspires to become a software engineer. However, they face a significant hurdle in the form of the three pillars of the non-medical field: PCM (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics). While they excel in programming and coding, their average performance in PCM may hinder their chances of getting into India’s top colleges. The student believes that a child’s skill set should be the primary criterion for evaluation, rather than solely relying on the academic curriculum established by the education board.
