#NSMQ2017: National Science and Maths Quiz Is Meaningless Unless...

Is the NSMQ meeting its objectives? One may ask, what are the objectives after all? Is it for mere competition or for fun or to shape and direct focus at improving the competitiveness of those schools that don't put up any appreciable competition.

If the later is true, what is the plan to realise this? who takes what action?

I think it is a great platform to shape government intervention in accademic performance at regional level.

Competition is good but if it is followed by no corrective action to improve, then it is a waste of everybody's time. 

The NSMQ is meaningless unless it achieves the total transformation of the actions of government and other stakeholders in upgrading accademic performance across board. If the schools that are last today wins tomorow, then NSMQ will have added value to academic performance.

After all what achievement or what satisfaction will it be, if same school top the competition and get the price every season. It may not mean that there is any net improvement in the performance of the best schools, but it may reflect a state of stagnancy in the performance of the non-performing schools.

Yet another competition is over. What are we up to? What is really at stake? Food for Thought for all and especially, the organizers.
