Are we really achieving real education?

Over the years (rather over atleast a decade), I’ve observed that knowledge is largely forgotten after a semester exam is over. Still, year after year Indian students focus on cramming information. The best crammers are rewarded. With all due respect this is one of the fundamental flaws of our education system. From colonial times, few things have changed. But the basis of it hasn’t! I think it’s time for a change! It should be more about acquiring knowledge rather than cramming information which is later forgotten! At the degree level atleast, the subjects should be streamlined to a student’s preference so that the process of acquiring this knowledge can be focused upon (since the student’s interest will constantly be evoked in their subject of choice) rather than imposing subject combinations with the same content over the years, which is inevitably forgotten one month after the exam.
