Are you sure when you made this comment??

as far as i know... ALL teachers deployed to be oral invigilators are trained teachers who have been through hours of workshops and standardization seminars year after year, every year as long as they are deployed.

btw, PE teachers can be language trained too......

on the topic of the psle chinese oral, anyone realized that in the lower primary sports carnival picture discussion, the wordings of the banner were in English? does this make sense at all? shouldn't the words be in chinese, ie words in English defeating the purpose of a chinese oral? I was also wondering if this is also a trick question, why not primary school sports day? are students supposed to differentiate between lower and upper primary? would marks be deducted if one doesn't make the distinction? now, parents, try translating the banner word for word into chinese, how should lower primary be translated into chinese?

As I remember it, all banners in Chinese picture description are in English all this while.

I believe this is to test if the students know how to translate English to their mother tongue.

As for the S1 and S2, I don't believe it is unfair. MOE does not want the info on the oral pictures to be leaked out, so that it's fairer.

And as for the sleep thing, the S1 students would just have to be responsible and sleep early.

Plus, S1 pupils do not have to worry so much compared to S2 students, as they can get the oral over and done with.

So, I believe that there are pros and cons on both sides. I myself was an S1 student this year, and it's not that bad. You get to revise in school when you couldn't revise at home much because of sibling's noise.
