Singapore's education system is not extremely difficult nor is it easy. Instead, it is designed in such a way that we covered the basics that today's workforce deems necessary. In another words, just plainly focus. If you had watched anime for long, you would understand in some scenes that they did indicate some subjects that they had learn over in Japan but never covered in Singapore education's syllabus. Take for example, astronomy was learn in High School but we do not remember we having that.

And yes, examinations are a must for now. If you have noticed a trend, the government has been trying to deviate and move away from the 'papers' system and more towards project- based. For good news for those who hates exams.

Despite having much strengths, I do still believe that Singapore's education system breeds elitism. Yeah, I am not going into details on it since many members had input much information about it already.

Not bad la but in SG we kinda get stereotyped based on our abilities like they think people who go to normal tech misbehave or like people who go ITE are slackers which of course is totally not true.
But slow learners are at a disadvantage I know cause i'm super slow in learning maths xD

Education here in Singapore feels kinda Average cuz we've been studying here since we were young...
^.^
Vote: Average

One thing to stress here though... Our local education level is higher than most countries, especially true when comparing with our neighbouring countries, but there are places with even higher education levels. This also explains why there are non-local scholars in Singapore who totally outwit us... =X

Anyway, in my point of view, certs. dun always play an important role as practical ability will outshine it eventually...

Singapore education system is not difficult , what is difficult is when you are enroll into a lousy school just like me. Losuy school make easy thing into more complicated stuff, Lousy teacher in lousy school = Jail + difficult education system as the school make you dun want to study. Now my greatest wish is to quickly finish o level and get out of that jail

it's alright i guess....there are difficult parts and Singapore's education IS higher than some of the other countries' but i don't really think we should complain cause we've been thought the same education system since young although i do find Singapore schools stricter than other countries...like for example, Japan...no matter how short their skirts are, i seriously doubt any of the teachers care and they're allowed to wear whatever hairstyle they want to school...in Singapore everyday have attire check damn sian T.T
