Now, there's things like Special, Express, NA, NT, whatever not.
But do you think this policy is efficient and effective? [especially for IP aka Special]
Because, what exactly is the reason behind these benchmark? To help pupils meet their level, or something else?
And if it is so, does it really help?

lol no one posts here eh

haha personally i think this whole policy isnt that bad, since it helps push students along the way and sort of gives them necessary stress to bring up their level of efficiency. By putting students together with people from the same stream, ie Special, Normal, i believe the students are able to study more productively, since they are all competing with people with similar academic results to them. But somehow this whole policy has gone hay-wired, and piled too much stress or else too little on the students, thus not acquiring the expected results. LOL

but recently, I heard from my friend Special has merged with Express hmmm.

I think IP is a failure. I don't think i've gained anything more than others from non-IP and I have poor examination skills thanks to lack of practice in IP. Another problem is that tests we have in IP (at least in my secondary school days) are generally modular in nature (aka test us on our knowledge based on a few selected topics) which kinda develop in us this "mug and forget" attitude. And this is definitely NOT GOOD for A levels ><
