URGHH today is the day we O level students get our results ! SINGAPORE TIME 2pm !

it is 2am now and i can't sleep . Was wondering if there are any people in the same plight as me !




Please post results as well when we got the results later !
i will too




( Hope this topic is allowed )


For people from other country , this exam is for express students or normal acadamic students ( 4 years for express , 5 year for normal acad ) to take when they reach they reach the end of their secondary school education .

It will determine whether they will proceed to Junior college , Polytechnic or ITE ( if i remember correctly it means insitude of technical education .. correct me if i am wrong ) .



IT IS A STEPPING STONE FOR US !

im not sure if we call it gcse's, i think it might be the 1st year of A lvls in england im not too sure though because i think they stoped calling it o lvls a few years back#

EDIT: oops they are the same as gcses but they were called that years ago

Hmm it is GCE O lvls.

Ordinary Level so to speak.

Taken when we finish our secondary education . around 16 or 17 years of age .

hmm our education goes this way .

4year old to 5 in kidergarden .

6 - 12 Primary school ( or it would be called elementry in other country )

13 - 16/17 Secondary School


and it follows with 3 year polytechnic or 2 year JC .

In JC we take A levels.



does that solve anything ?





and yes . we are talking about National exams that enable further studies . not just report cards.

well for us we have these huge tests all around canada during grade 3, grade 6, and grade 10 (when you're in highschool which is most important, because if you fail the grade 10 test then you dont graduate (x . X ) You are able to retake it the year after if you fail. its made out of two parts. the reading section and the writing section )
these tests are basically just to calculate how canada's students are doing.
in highschool we have exams after each semester which is 30% of our grade.
But some teachers split that and instead give us a huge project which can equal to 15% leaving our exam to be 15% which evens it out. so it all depends on the teacher.
We have exams after each semester on the course we took. So during one year we have 8 exams if you're taking the full courses.


thats a little bit confusing you know >.< oh, and also in canada and america, you do your S.A.T's when your in the 4th/5th grade right? just before you go to middle school (its hard to transfe the education systems from one country to another). Well.... in england, we do S.A.T's when we are in year 2(1st grade), year 6 (5th grade) and our last S.A.T's in year 9 (8th grade)....... England puts us british people through hell to get a decent education, and like 30% dont even get decent results.... if only they had the thing where if you didn't pass the accedemic year, you had to stay behind....
