  • Tuesday, 05 Jul 2022

THE centralised Form Three Assessment (PT3) examination was abolished this year by the Education Ministry. This move is intended to ensure that the focus of education in national-type schools is on formative assessments with an expectation that classroom-based assessments are significantly improved in terms of validity, reliability, and implementation.

Fundamentally, this announcement has been accepted positively by various stakeholders who view the move as a step in the right direction for the shift from an exam-oriented education ecosystem to more quality-oriented teaching and learning in our schools.
