RECENTLY watching news on a TV channel, I was shocked to see rampant cheating by youngsters in the recent matriculation board examinations. Cheating in examinations is spreading like an epidemic and if not controlled will ruin the career of upcoming generations.
If the situation continues, we will witness in the near future a large population of ‘literate illiterates’.
Although centres where examinations are held are primarily responsible for maintaining discipline, I would suggest that it is the parents’ duty to ensure that the children understand their responsibility and clear the examinations with their own efforts.
This will give them a level of higher satisfaction in their lives.
