Abstract: A school should follow ‘learning methodology’ (like activity based learning, active learning methodology, etc.), the examination is built within the learning process, which means that there is no separate exam. Students do self evaluation, projects, etc. while they are learning the content. Here examination is done on the basis of students’ learning. Exams are necessary in schools to find out the real skills, talents and knowledge of the students. But practically this is not done therefore the researcher felt the need to conduct a study to formulate a question paper which measures and values the student’s IQ,EQ,SQ and Skills Developed in the students and researcher wanted to identify the pros and cons of board examination, the understand the psychology of students and various challenges encountered in conducting the board exams. The researcher used SPSS package to analyse the questionnaire and used certain statistical tools such Frequency Analysis, ANOVA , Regression, Factor Analysis etc. to find out that board examination does not inculcate reasoning ability in the minds of the students neither it makes the students to learn with understanding. and it does not test their general knowledge. Board Examination at the same time with few negativity induces problem solving technique and develops social skills though verbal ability and speed of logical reasoning is not tested through questions. Therefore the researcher advises to revise the pattern of exam giving students a stress free environment, carrying general knowledge and logical ability.
