CCE grading patterns have a number of disadvantages. First and foremost, the 'Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation' of students often leads to the said students feeling under pressure and stressed out throughout their school years. The tests themselves will be set using a limited syllabus, meaning students do not receive a broad and varied education in the classroom. This can stunt learning development in later school years and result in pupils that are not well rounded. Teachers will focus more on encouraging students to do well in examinations, rather than teaching them about various subject areas with interest. Pupils themselves will become focused on tests rather than the actual learning, and may struggle to become interested in various academic subjects later in life, causing them to drop out of the education system.
