Can you be specific about the pilot project? Is it the one about doing away with P1/P2 exams?

I believe MOE has never revealed which are these 16 schools.

Only known schools are

- Da Qiao Primary School
- Haig Girls' School
- Keming Primary

for those schools that do away P1/2 exams, do they still have High Ability Class from P3 onwards? if so, how to stream the pupils without exam?
assessed by topical tests if still exist or daily routine worksheet :?

no exam does not mean no assessments.

Assessments will be in the form of 'show and tell', drama, or by keeping journals, etc.

Nanyang has Chinese Fun Day, which tests pupils' skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening.

can't blame MOE for taking it slowly.

when this idea of doing away with exam was announced, there were a lot of concerned parents who voiced their disagreements.
