Kolej untuk pelajar tingkatan 6...cadangan yg baik!

KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry is preparing a paper for the establishment of a college for Form Six studies.
Its deputy minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong told Datuk Abdul Manan Ismail (BN-Paya Besar) that such a college would be equipped with the most experienced teachers to teach Form Six students.
“At present, Form Six classes form a part of the normal secondary school. The setting up of the college is part of our plan to radically transform Form Six studies and take into account the higher thinking, analytical and evaluation skills necessary to excel in the STPM.
“The teaching of STPM subjects would also be based on a modular system whereby students will be evaluated after every semester, rather than at the end of the two years.
“Currently, by the time students take their Form Six exams, they would have forgotten everything taught in the first year,” he said.
Having a college specifically for Form Six studies would also centralise students from one district or region, added Dr Wee.
“This means that instead of having six or seven schools in one area teaching Form Six, we will just have one college for all the students there,” he said.
To another question by Abdul Manan, Dr Wee said the standard for STPM was comparative to the Cambridge A Levels, which made the test acceptable for entrance into overseas universities.
Later, Dr Wee said the evaluation for STPM would also include marks for coursework, adding that this would make Form Six studies more attractive and vibrant for students.
“With students having more choices now, we need to make STPM more attractive,” he said, adding that the paper however “still had a long way to go” and that the ministry would need to further discuss the proposal with the Finance Ministry.
