Its always for good only.

Reason - If there are 10 seats and 100 students, then there must be a competition to choose the best 10, so that deserving students can get the opportunity.

it is absolutely necessary for a competitive education system.how else can we expect a brighter generation ahead?besides a competitive atmosphere makes a student perform better than normal.there has to be a healthy competition.
and this reservation is doing all injustice it can to many students.it is painful to see another student with lower marks getting a course you really wanted(but couldn't make it) due to this reservation quota..馃槨

I agree with Juma..
Education is a process of learning.
learning for a lifetime.
education must be enjoyable.
and the competition makes it dull.
the real education is there when you want to learn about the subject from your heart.
in a competitive education we are learning because we have to learn..but in a real education you are learning because you want to learn.you have the curiosity in you.
and yes everyone is bright is one or the other way.getting a degree is not only the way for education.
so,i guess the open system should be adopted for education.learn as you like..

A purely competitive system would be good if the testers were always wise enough to pick the material that is important. But they are not. So it is best to have a system where a few people can get around the competitive process, slip through the backdoor, so to speak. That preserves some variety in the group that is educated.

I think this is analogous to the way that nature preserves variety through evolution and genetics. If the advantage in being tall and strong were allowed to stamp out all the genes for being small then the population would become all strong and tall people. If the population needed a small person to explore a cave or walk over a flimsy log to cross a river then it would be out of luck. Evolution preserves variety in the population.

Reservation system has real impact on students who study really well.,It blocks their opportunities.

Explain to someone who does not live in India, what a "reservation system" is.
The cast system has been an integral part of Indian society for ages. For years, the backward classes were deprived from education. It was proposed that the backward classes should be given a quota in education for a span of 10 years.

That means, in college/school admissions and jobs a fixed percentage of seats were reserved for people from the backward classes.

The intentions were good; however the politicians manipulated and extended the reservation system for over 60 years and still going strong. Two generations have benefited from the reservation system; but no one is now willing to scrap it off.
