Re: The Singapore education system, its strengths and weaknesses.

First of all.. The MOE is doing studpid things to the education system. They are trying to hard to make singapore stand out and saying that they are giving us the best education.

They are making too mant subject like now they just implant the high art and high FnN. Not forgetting , chinese drama , english drama and chinese lit...
If i was still schooling and Im in sec1 I would be effected and have to study all this new subjects.

I cannot see why the goverement dont want to put the education system like the old time which is just one cert which say you are good in the basic, english , chinese , science and lit.

I just dont get it.. Why so many subjects...

Re: The Singapore education system, its strengths and weaknesses.

We are living in an era where everything changes at a very fast rate. All this affects on how the education system should be carried out on the kids for the future. To survive, the system have to be changed.

However, with changes, it affects everyone that is involved. Changes do not ensure perfection. And humans dislikes changes. It is no wonder, these past years have been a transition period to which kind of education system should the country take up on all levels to suit the needs of the economy...

yup.. My paper is already 350++ and is only like 6 papers? Imagine those people who have 10 subjects.. + the current GST.. I tell you.. can die.

I suggest that the MOE should learn from their mistake and rethink what they are doing..
I read on the other countrys education and they seem to be going back to their old education system .

Re: The Singapore education system, its strengths and weaknesses.

I'd like to thank myself for all my hard work. The education system is useless without a good student.

Maybe, Singapore just have many students wanting to survive, therefore need good certs for a good future. They downplay the fact that in Singapore, if you are not an A student, you better be a good businessman. ~_~

Re: The Singapore education system, its strengths and weaknesses.

lots and lots of subjects
--> greater exposure, more fields for a student to explore, more fields to discover his/her interests in!

price of paper
--> this is pretty much decided by cambridge...

system always changing
--> lol i agree with ashfire. this world is ever changing, and so rapidly. a rigid, inflexible education system will produce junk. 要随机应变!

Re: The Singapore education system, its strengths and weaknesses.

I believe the strength is that they make sure everyone has to go tru the KIndergarden and now Primary school(There's a new law on it right). And the education from Kindergarden to Poly/JC/ITE is cheap n subsidised.

Weakness is: Those slower learners like those who go to ITE are not given enough chance. Most employers seems to stereotype ITE Students. Maybe they should give more chance for those in ITE to move on to Poly and even University after thy complete their Poly education.

Re: The Singapore education system, its strengths and weaknesses.

advantage - The students enjoy a relatively high standard of education even if they only graduate from secondary

- they plan it in such a way that even if you are poor academically, you can still learn a survival skill in places like ITE (never mind about the Its The End tag)

- The students are now getting better choices for CCA and the program actually shifted from fully academic base to slightly more focused on academic.

Disadvantage - due to the number of subjects, we are jack of all trade and master of none minus away those professional like lawyers and doctors.

- we are wasting too many years especially in primary and secondary on subjects that does not matter. Like lower secondary students are expected to take up to 9 or ten subjects. Why not be more focus from secondary two onwards. So that the specialisation can start now.

- The diverisifcation is still not enough. ITE is still a little tag as Its the End by some people.

- Acaademic smart but ku ku in real life application. I had seen tons of degree holders and master screwing up as they followed strictly based on what they learned alone while thinking that they can do anything and they are there cios they are the elite of the elite....
