Streaming at upper secondary level

When I was in secondary school, there was streaming. In secondary 3, we were streamed into science or arts stream. We took different subjects.

Some other secondary schools have the technical stream.

The streaming was accepted at upper secondary. There was no controversy.

The streaming adopted by the government in the late 1980s applied to PSLE (primary six). It was a bad idea to stream that so early. Worse - there was a stigma between normal and express streams.

It would be better to get rid of the streaming in PSLE and revert to the old system - where the students are streamed at upper secondary.

Did well for my A Levels was because of my luck. Most questions I spotted on learning came out in the exam questions. Did d not do well in class exams. A few of my mates had to stay back due to poor class results.

Agree. Flawed system. Hate this system for decades. Unfair to kids.
