Suppose you sit as an examiner of a paper in a Humanity, where the answers are of the essay type. You have to read very bad handwrtings,defective and extremely taxing answers, wade through answers with writings scratched and amended by over writing, meaningless writings as answers, copied answers, all answers verbatim repetition of a guide...the variety of tax on patience is very large. After the first five scripts of the torture, you do not read the answer completely, but begin searching for the relevant points to finish of the valuation. Your nerves reach the edge and you swallow tea after tea. There are many examiners that just glance through, and as glancing through becomes the standard method many opt to become examiners even without knowing the subject. Any how by the time one reaches the last answer script of the day one is in a daze and literally drones away the work.
The best method of escape is giving very high marks as no one applies for revaluation as very high marks are awarded. As a result one need not know the subject to become an examiner. One needs only recorded experience as a lecturer or in the absence of that know the person that appoints you as the examiner. The net result is the appearance of candidates that show even 80 per cent or more of marks in humanities. Are we to assume that all those people are John Maynard Keynes or Hazel Hendersons?If you hope to meet such great people on the basis of the marks sheet you will be greatly disappointed.
