There are various mechanisms to learn like schools, coaching classes, private tuition, books, online material, etc. Students are investing significant time in learning, but it is also equally important to check the effectiveness of the learning by performing regular evaluation. The evaluation mechanism in all educational institutes is to arrange regular Exam. These Exams are quite orthodox and fully dependent.
