Tests and examinations enable assessment of the knowledge or skills of a student in a subject or an activity and they are more focused to assess to acknowledge levels of expected knowledge or skills.
Competitions, on the other hand, are more focused on the expectations as to how extraordinarily the students can perform. Rather the competitions are aimed at bringing out the exciting possibilities of students knowledge or skills. To boost up the students, we encouraged our students to participate in some of the activities as follows.
