I realise that examination questions are becoming more challenging over the years. Why is that so?


The teaching scope and emphasis is different for students of different aptitude. For students who are very weak, the initial emphasis is on mechanical skills and core questions. For students of average aptitude, the focus is on core and secondary questions. For students with a flair for the subject, the focus is on core and secondary questions with as much independence as possible and more exposure to tougher questions. Why do we want to head in the ''most difficult'' direction?

    A straightforward and succinct answer. I agree that exams must not merely test students on memorization, but on application. Although the questions might be onerous, the purpose of education is to challenge people to ponder and reason.
