Board examinations in class 12 often receive criticism for assessing only a limited set of skills, primarily those that can be evaluated through written examinations. As a result, the focus of teaching and learning tends to revolve around what is assessed in these exams while neglecting key learning outcomes essential for a well-rounded education. Specific key outcomes of learning that are core and essential for attaining the broader aims of education but cannot be assessed through written examinations remain unaddressed. It is important to recognise these shortcomings and incorporate the essential learning outcomes into the broader educational process, beyond the scope of board exams. The critical question is how teachers and educational institutions can work together to create a balanced learning environment that nurtures these outcomes and prepares students for life beyond examinations.
