PSLE QUESTION ABOUT RIBBONS SENT PARENTS INTO ANGER FRENZY

In a sign of times, parents have got in the act, complaining that the PSLE question in a mathematics paper was tricky and disturbing. One online forum writer even claimed that he had written to a school principal to give "feedback to the Ministry of Education (MOE)"

Mr Bhajan Singh, a 70-year-old ex-principal previously involved in the setting of examination papers, said parents should have faith in Singapore's education system instead of throwing a "tantrum".

SEAB TELLS STUDENTS NO NEED EXCUSE SHEET IF MRT DISRUPTED, JUST DON'T STRESS

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.

I think we are on really shaky grounds if PSLE is the main determinant of our children having a happy childhood.

When you kids do not perform well there are many reasons. One of the reasons being as parents, if you are not an achiever, you do not know how to achieve but you know how to pressurise them.

YOUR PSLE DOES NOT DEFINE YOU AS A PERSON

Don’t let your PSLE score define you, because it doesn’t. It should not even be taken as a measure of your intelligence. Or proxy for what you can achieve in life. Even Mensa scores are not a measure of all-round intelligence and potential to achieve excellence in life (what that is exactly is another topic for another day).
