    I think CCE is an excellent way of truly giving the student a chance to learn in an envigorating environment, do the best he/she can do in and be assessed in a continuous and varied manner. However, very few schools seem to have truly understood the concept of FA and SA. The “Unit Tests” have been replaced by “FA tests” even in lower classes and to add to that the new concept of projects and experiential learning seem to have got the schools confused. They have added this concept to the “FA Tests” and added to the burden. No wonder…. many on this site are complaining about CCE. FA is not another kind of Unit Test!! Until schools really use FA appropriately, it will put more pressure on students. How do we solve this??
