Examinations are a powerful force in determining what is taught and what is learned through some instruction. At present the examination stresses only information about the subject. The shift can be made from the examinations as the controlling force in fulfilling the purpose of education as the guides to learning and examining are a necessary evil. An examination is intended to be a test of work done over certain period. At its best, the examination does not test only the amount of information accumulated on certain subjects over a given period. It also tests the ability to think and the ability to arrange material logically. Currently, it tests the faculties of memory, imagination, originality, observation and sensibility. But, at their best, examinations test more than the quality of instruction. They are a true test of education. Examinations are, therefore, instruments of evaluation and measurement to which educational methods, teaching procedures and techniques of preparation are subjected. From this stand point an examination is a measuring instrument intended to verify both a candidate?s value and the value of the teaching he has received.
