Exams vs Holistic Development, why the government is beginning to switch from exams.
According to an article posted on Today News, the Ministry of Education (MOE) is reducing examinations by 25 percent. Have you ever wondered why the government is beginning to place less emphasis on examinations?
Other research has found that developing students’ Emotional Quotient (EQ) and holistic Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is equally important, if not more important, than just focusing on exam results. Currently, academic achievements no longer play a major role when candidates go for a job interview, nowadays, employers are looking out for soft skills that can be directly transferred to the job itself.
