[PSLE MT] PSLE less weightage in Chinese / Mother Tongue

Postby Ca3kids » Wed Apr 21, 2010 11:10 am

Hi All

For those parents that worry about Chinese, a good news from today's newspaper :celebrate:

MOE is considering to have less weightage in Chinese as they mention since Chinese is not compulsory in O level results and even in JC, then for P6, Chinese should not have so much weightage

But too bad, I think this takes years to come true. At least not for this year PSLE. May affect my P3 kids but definitely not for my P6 girl now :stupid:

Wonder how does this affect students who are good in MT? Also kids from SAP school.

I don't know know as not much detail given on the newspaper

It may not even affecting those already in Primary school even P1 now. It may takes years to come. I think they don't want to discourage/stop bright students that are not good in Chinese. MOE will collect suggestions etc according to newspaper. So maybe too late for all the parents that have kids in primary school now. :stupid:

Maybe our grandchildren will benefits from it. Haha :celebrate:
