Tests and examinations enable assessment of the knowledge or skills of a student in a subject or an activity and they are more focused to assess to acknowledge levels of expected knowledge or skills. Competitions, on the other hand, are more focused on the expectations as to how extraordinarily the students can perform. Rather the competitions are aimed at bringing out the exciting possibilities of students’ knowledge or skills.
Competitions in Abacus based mental calculations are therefore the high-end tests exposing the children to seemingly tougher tasks in calculations. The challenge is increased steadily either by reducing the time for the given tasks or by increasing the number of tasks within an allotted time. Either way, the student participating in the competition to win in good positions must be capable of being extraordinary. The speed factor is the differentiating aspect which actually makes the student employs absolute concentration as a skill while doing calculations. Concentration is a single minded attention focused totally on the very limited sphere of activity which only brings out positive results. While calculations are done by a student using Abacus based computation methodology the student tends to go through an inner murmuring of numbers added, subtracted, multiplied or divided. So there is also a fine frequency listening that happens within, which becomes the part of the total activity. The student’s mind will experience hyperactivity within, while there is a visible inattention to the external environs. Hence concentration, visualization and listening as skills are harmoniously working in every split second thereof. The brain activity, therefore, is extremely great during abacus-based mental calculations and the speed that the student attains to finish the paper faster than the others has a visible veil of total silence for an onlooker. Competitions are therefore opportunities for the students to challenge their own brains to attain extended milestones which they are yet to experience, and which they might otherwise be missing to achieve.
