Students’ Spontaneous Responses to an Impromptu Topic Provided on the Spot

In a typical school week competition recently held in a school, a strange topic was given and students were asked to write their reactions in a few words. The subject and the top ten reactions were as follows:
The Subject: Can SMS (Short Message Service) language be allowed for students in an examination?

The reactions:
Student 1:  There has been a trend to spoil our old classic songs sung by great singers by preparing their remixes. Deforming exquisitely written material by using SMS language looks similar. There is no way I can support the topic.
Student 2: SMS is a time saver. Just like in a general language, idea is definitely conveyed and you save time too. So, why not? I shall go for it. Nowadays nobody has got time to beautify, explain and provide details. You think to the point and so you should be able to express fast. SMS is the fast way to write and to my thought it should be allowed in an examination.
Student 3: I think this is one point where convention confronts change. Writing explicitly and exquisitely are gone with the wind and writing and grasping fast are in. I am not with or without the opinion but expressing my opinion. So I shall take a path in between and say “Beauty lies in the I’s of the beholder” and it’s up to him/her what one takes and what one rejects.
Student 4: I remember the days when I was a first time chatter on the internet and could not make out the very first message sent to me. It read ‘ASN’. Many days later I came to know that it meant Age, Sex and Name. Day is not far when a student will write LOL at the end of an answer or draw a smiley to begin an answer. May be teachers will give questions like: Name the things required 4 photo Cnthesis
Student 5: Short-hand writing already existed but is it allowed in an examination to write the answers? It is not popular with teachers and students nor can be SMS style of writing. Since the conventional style of writing convinces well and gives a soothing feeling it can naturally be preferred.
Student 6: SMS writing is not as easy to understand as conventional style. You have to be on your toes to understand the SMS style writing. So it triggers your brain and keeps it active. My vote is definitely in support of the motion.
Student 7: Since SMS s are used over cell phones, consulting each other about study materials will be easier by way of sending and receiving salient points. To put it another way academic communication among students will improve.
Student 8: I wonder how there can be two angles to such a thought. I find it hard to take how someone can speak in favour of such a cruel idea that will completely wipe out the beauty of tradition, the authenticity of presentation and most importantly the thoroughness of explanation. With SMS language the questions and answers will look like broken pieces of a landscape which can never provide the same enchantment as the entire view.
Student 9: Examination is neither about sending and receiving messages nor about chatting and e-mailing. A part of it consists of language style and eloquence, clarity of expression and effective communication of one’s thoughts and ideas to the examiner. This can be done efficiently by conventional language only and never by SMS language.
Student 10:  Conventional language explains a fact and the main theme of the say is lost in the crowd of words. On the other hand with SMS mnemonics nobody would fiddle with the main idea of communication and would concentrate on passing the crux of the matter. QED.
