Just now,,i had already sat for my BIOLOGY exam and I'm just wanna to express my opinion about our exam oriented system!
In what extents the exam based mentality could survives in the market? It's interesting to hear or know the Education Ministry would consider to abandon Primary School Evaluation Test (UPSR) in academic school calendar. They said, the exam only produce the students to boarding school instead of digging/exploring skills such as communications and practicality.
Abroad, especially in Japan , we never been heard of exam oriented in their schooling approach. Never.. What they emphasized on are the courage and confidence of inner self, independent of exploring and doing something unique which the scholars were thinking about this long time ago.
Yet, the phenomenon of hoping and depending on lecturer continuously happens! Students in International Islamic University, even most Institutions of Higher Learning (IPT) in Malaysia, I think,are included in that group (dependent). Lack of the confidence in throwing ideas and opinions keep happening in the class and lectures.(maybe myself also,maybe)
Questions and arguments of an issue posed to us only left a silent response, thus, make a lecture session to be a mourn and a bore. We couldn't be blame 100%.
The system our government created based on UK educational system for us, lead us in that way.Students stay up overnight for FINAL EXAM tomorrow,last minute study,burnt out after realized that,there are hundreds of facts to memorize
If we really care about the future, let's us as new generation change this system of exam oriented. While the time is running out, keep us in this way is just an absurd.
p/s: sorry,,i didnt have any tips...haha
