The Benefits of Taking an Exam

Why take examinations?

The examinations have been found to be essential for most students wishing to achieve real progress in their Sanskrit studies. Having a clear objective such as the final examination encourages regular, systematic study and realistic efforts at each stage of study courses.

Many people study the language and sit the examinations purely for enjoyment and self-development. In the case of students applying for university courses, Cambridge International Sanskrit qualifications at GCSE Level have proved to be a positive advantage.

Sanskrit is recognised in academic circles world-wide as a Classical language par excellence. The Cambridge International Sanskrit qualifications are valid for students applying to university in their own country, and for those coming to the UK from abroad.

The benefit is mutual: every person entering to take the Cambridge Sanskrit examination helps to keep Sanskrit study on the curriculum in secondary schools in the UK and globally.
