Examination vs Real Competence
It is my belief that some people do not perform excellently in school (university or other educational institution) because examinations, which are the criteria for evaluation in school, do not motivate them for performance. Exams do not really task their capabilities. They do not find exams enough condition to really lay demand on their capabilities.
For them, real situations of life are what lay adequate demand on their abilities. When they find themselves in actual and real-life conditions, their capabilities begin to unlock. Their counterparts whose capabilities were easily unlocked by examinations sometimes may not match their performance in real-life situations. In fact, it is my opinion that anyone whose potentials are easily unlocked by examinations but manifests a clear shortfall in performance in real situations possesses an artificial and faulty perspective of life.
