It is stressful to be a student here, even in primary school. For Primary
Schoo Leaving Exam, the 6th graders are tested on what they learn from 3rd
/ 4th grade upwards, and sometimes the questions can be confusing, esp when
it comes to Maths. And then it gets easy in the 1st year in secondary
school, but in 3rd year, there was a great increase of what they learnt
from 2nd yeae, but then in 4th year, there werw much more students gotta
learn because there will be O levels at end of year. they were expected to
capture fast in case they get left behind. If i am not wrong, O levels at
end of 4th year includes what they learn in the earlier years. This can be
stressful, not only with the large amount of content in each subject they
have to remember, but also the number of subjects they have to handle. And
the students are expected to achieve an A or at least B in all subjects.

Unfortunately, Singapore is a borderline dictatorship, most definitely a
one-party state. It is also wildly out-of-step with its legal code relative
to other Commonwealth countries and the United States of America.

LMFAO. Not all Primary and secondary schools have such a high budget where
they can use smart boards or even laptops . Also, all students are
subjected to standardized testing which if they fail they would get my
supplementary classes which would be counterproductive since almost
everyday the student will feel stress for the next test , homework and even
projects since they will have less time to devote to these tasks .

Автор bk ( назад)
Singapore standards are:
A = Average
B = Bad
C = Cannot have dinner
D = Don't come home
F = Find a new family

They didn't show secondary school students, I wondered if they would smile
like how primary school students did. Me myself is a secondary school
student and I would say a big NO

This was about as bland and uninformative as you could make a video. Nice
conclusions too; basically that we just need to become more collaborative
and de-emphasize testing to perform more like Singapore. Certainly
something that a teacher's union, who sponsored this video, would find

Here are the links that tell the fact about whether Singaporean is learning
by rote :
Some Singapore's young students are going through the whole comments board
to shoot down anyone who has differed view from their opposing opinion
about Singapore's educational system. I can tell that the student is likely
holding a lot of anger within. Singapore should do more to reduce the
stress of young student. On the other hand, Capitalism and globalization
has created a very competitive world. 1.4 billion Chinese is quickly
adapting to the modern pace and another 1.4 billion Indian in the pipeline,
I don't see an easier life ahead for the next generation. Stress is
inevitable when your desire is way bigger than your ability.

Автор Anup Pandey ( назад)
India should move to this type of education teaching, not to make a student
employed but smart enough to have a knowledge and make one tension free of
obstacles and face it through the excitement knowledge they have........
Shreya, Hope so India would progress.

The Singaporean Government is really good at putting up a facade, don't
believe this crap. It's just another propaganda video released by the
dictatorship that is PAP.

Автор mimimomo oxo (Musicka) ( назад)
no tests? I think you guys are forgetting about the PSLE, O-levels,
A-levels, and if you do badly N-levels. The teachers here are treated like
shit and have to vote for the PAP or risk getting sacked. Joyful? what is
that bs? A girl in my school committed suicide last year for not doing well
in her end of years. Most of us go to school purely because our friends are
there. Our system may have high scores, but trust me, nobody here is
avtually motivated

Автор Gina Chen ( назад)
Seeing all these comments make me sad. Why? BECAUSE BLOODY IDIOTS ARE BEING
UNBELIEVABLE!! YES we have test! YES we have major exams to study for! I'll
agree on those things BUT they are for CRITICAL THINKING and to see whether
or not we as STUDENTS UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT! Why else would they bother to
put the weaker students in supplementary classes? It's so that they can ask
the questions they wanted to ask in a normal class that still lingered in
their heads!! GET FACTS FIRST ON WHY THINGS ARE DONE!! I really cannot
believe how many of you can talk TRASH about your own education!! Then what
huh?!? You want to fail and go work at McDonalds and live with your parents
for the rest of your life is it?!??!!!! DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT STRESS WHEN

testing is such a huge deal here, you have multiple tests every week or
day. especially in secondary school and junior college. its just another
asian country at the end of the day after all.

Visualization vs Memorization....... I'm really sure there is hardly any
visualization in Secondary school...... Heck why did they only show the
primary school and ITE. Obviously the primary school students will
''enjoy'' school since they are much more curious at such a young age.
Pretty sure if you ask the secondary school students if they enjoyed coming
to school, many would say no.

Singapore education system sucks!
The only focus is on paper qualification and not the child personal growth
and development !
The system dosen't encourage young people to chase after their dream and do
what they really wanted to do in life. It is all about results and topping
the class every time!
The system fails to understand that not every child want to be a lawyer,
engineer, scientist or doctor when they grow up. Give the children a chance
to be exposed to more music, arts and sports!
It is not all about paper qualifications but sadly society have progressed
till the stage that finding a job is all about qualification!

I lived outside of Singapore many years and have attended schools in both
Asian and the US. So i know first hand what the pros and cons are. When my
children reached schooling age, I moved my family back to Singapore solely
because of our education system and have never regretted the decisions.

As an American, I wish our educational system was more like this. How
unfortunate... We'll focus on our education after the world stops treating
us like treasures, especially since we destroy more money & resources than

Weingarten watched, but picked up only what she wanted to imagine she saw.
Singapore has all Singaporean, well mannered children so of course it
works. Whine gardener is too dense to see that this could never work in a
country that values the loudest whiner over he/she who achieves, and where
correcting a student's paper - AT THE DOCTORAL LEVEL- is seen as racist
micro aggression..

Whatever that's being shown is planned(not by AFTHQ but by the school them
selves) and it only happens when the schools have visitors at the end of

learning out of curiousity, as a student myself Singapore is good only
if you are acadamically inclined

Srsly, I just cant express how relatable some of d comments here are. This
video is clearly a form of propaganda, meant to portray Singapore's
education as 'perfect' when it's really less den perfect. Any student in
Singapore will understand d stress they face in d importance of education
results as any of these will actually affect d child's future n career.
Life is just too stressful here. N I can say dat as I'm a overly stressed
student dat constantly thinks of suicide n ways just to escape from stress

There is no point looking at other educations systems until the people

BS, Singapore school is very results, exam oriented. Kids are been streamed
as young as 8 years old.

Автор Il Cielo ( назад)
this video is obviously incongruous with much of our own experiences. Much
of my own experience in primary school was suffused with PSLE this and PSLE
that. The very fact that the video shows high tec boards does little to
alter the fundamental aspect of education: route memorisation of algortihms
and their applications.

Автор Il Cielo ( назад)
I must point out that education in the united states differs across the
country by the state and even from town to town. But one thing is true
across the board: the direction in which education heads towards is fraught
with political correctness and political incentives, as in Singapore.

Funny how those giving their opinions on the education system aren't even
students. Who are they to comment, they didn't even experience the
education system firsthand. Well let me tell you firsthand, it is not as
good as it's cracked up to be. The stress is insurmountable, nuff said. And
I'll probably get charged for writing stuff like this since freedom of
speech is non existent.

country run by a corrupt dictatorship. You can boast all you want about how
good your country economy and how rich it is but the fact remains is that
the government is rich and not you. You will be slaving for the rest of
your life doing office work since they took all of your retirement money ,
who's a jammy bastard!

It always a good laugh to see singaporeans unable to come up with a insult
of their own other than take what the other person said earlier and turn it
back on them. Jappy you need to take your head out of your ass because no

not ban achohol since it cause more accidents than drugs?I am not a
malaysian but it's sad bigots like yourself are so prejudice against a
country of people that did nothing against you except for their politicians
