Recently, an open letter was posted on the Online Citizen by a group of Project Work tutors in a local junior college. The letter reflects the general ground sentiments towards the latest guidelines given by MOE for the A-level Project Work subject, which every JC1 student has to offer.
My personal take is that while the intent of the subject is good, the ministry should not have made it a graded subject. Instead, a pass-fail grade would suffice, with the best projects being showcased in a fair, which will then undergo further judging for awards such as gold, silver and bronze medals, much like the Singapore Science and Engineering Fair.
I wonder if anyone else has other views?
