SEAB said that it has been working with schools to advise candidates to plan for sufficient travel time, and the steps that they should take if affected by train service disruptions. Candidates would be given the full duration of time for the paper, no matter what time they start, it said.
But what all this failed to address, and the authorities need to take note of this, is that students in Singapore are already a very stressed bunch. What with a major exam and getting stuck on trains, will just add on to the stress of these students. And there were no proper apologies from the guilty party. If there are many bad results from yesterday's exams, we know who to blame.
