Below is the poll results which I print screen from thestar Online. Actually my vote for this is NO….as I go through the UPSR and PMR.
Sometimes, I just wonder why after so long only there is a request to scrap these exams. The reason to abolished UPSR and PMR because it was seen to be so examination oriented and failed to provide a holistic education. If this is true, I think what we need to do is identify the root-cause why we fail.
Honestly, nobody like examination. I always hope there is no examination as exam just makes me feel so stress but I do think we can improve the style of UPSR and PMR instead just scarp it.
Besides that, we should educate the mindset of the parents as some parents really putting to much pressure to their children. Comprehensive study need to be done on how to produce knowledgeable and skilled student in this competitive environment.
