Sec 1 & 2 : History & Geog not examinable anymore

Postby verykiasu2010 » Wed Feb 08, 2012 5:15 pm

如果教育部的提议通过,从2014年起,本地中一中二班的学生,再也不需要参加人文科目(地理和历史)的学校考试,包括年中和年终考试。

与此同时,教育部将推出“地理研究”和“历史研究”两个新单元。

到时,学校将根据学生在“地理研究”和“历史研究”的得分,来给他们的地理和历史科打分。

据《新报》报道,许多初中的地理和历史老师,已经在1月31日至2月1日接到教育部通知。

完整报道,请翻阅08.02.2012《新明日报》。

No humanities exams for some lower secondary school students

By Stacey Chia
The Ministry of Education (MOE) is starting a new syllabus for humanities subjects, one that will do away with the mid-term and year-end examinations at the lower secondary level.

Instead, students will have to do well in a variety of continual assessments and student investigations of various historical and geographical case studies, to prove that they are competent in the two subjects.

MOE said that these changes come as part of a review of the lower secondary geography and history syllabuses, to ensure that they are updated and relevant.

It is also part of the MOE's Teach Less, Learn More approach, which encourages teachers to engage students and prepare them for life, rather than just exams.
