New Delhi. Exit Exam, a new concept where students are asked to answer sample questions as soon as they come out of the examination hall, has predicted that Yogendra Yadav, a class 12th test taker, will get around 98% in the ongoing CBSE board examination. Exit Exam organizers claim that the final marks that Yogendra would get would be within a range of 5% of what they have predicted.
Exit Exam, following the same principles as followed by Exit Poll, are being conducted for the first time in the world, and Yogendra Yadav was among the few lucky students chosen for this pathbreaking experiment.
“They say I’d get 98% marks, not bad!” said Yogendra, who spent whole day on Sunday watching TV, instead of studying for the exams, after being confident of his performance in the exams.
“I could get even 103% as their margin of error is 5%,” a happy Yogendra added, as he switched channels on TV, “Guaranteed admission in Delhi University!”
On the other hand Digvijay Singh, a friend of Yogendra Yadav and a fellow test-taker, has rejected the Exit Exam finding calling it “trash” because it predicted Digvijay Singh getting below 20 marks in every subject.
“Exit Exams must be banned,” Digvijay demanded. Digvijay told Faking News that he had already written to HRD Minister Kapil Sibal in this regard and he is hopeful that Sibal will ban or at least pre-screen such attempts.
But Exit Exam organizers claim that they are here to stay and would repeat the experiment for everything – entrance exams for admission to engineering and medical colleges, CAT for admission to b-schools, and even for auditions for admission to MTV Roadies.
“For MTV Roadies, we’d have a slight change in the methodology,” informed Mahendra Singh, one of the core members of the organization that ran the Exit Exam, “Instead of contestants coming out of the audition rooms, we’d interview them before entering a public toilet.”
Mahendra claimed that Exit Exams could prove to be very helpful to students: “Test takers have to wait much longer to get their marks than politicians who have to wait for just a few days to get the final tally in an assembly or parliamentary elections.”
He further claimed that applying the logic of Exit Polls to educational exams was not strange as the logic of “Opinion Polls” was already being applied by many schools.
“Pre-Board Exams are nothing but Opinion Polls,” Mahendra argued.
Responding to criticisms by likes of Digvijay Singh, who have been predicted to be performing horribly in the exams, Mahendra had a word of advice for such students:
“If our Exit Exams go wrong, you would get good marks and can make a career in the field of your choice. And if our predictions are true and you fail in the exams, you can join our organization; failures don’t matter in our business.”
“Haven’t Exit Polls continued to be in business after being proved wrong many times?” Mahendra asked.
