While students were preparing for the examinations, planning and revising, the MGPS Examination Committee was planning and preparing the conduct of the exam, marking and announcing the results of semester 1 to the best of its ability.
Examinations are conducted to achieve the following:
1) To determine to what extent a student understood the objective of the knowledge, skills and insights impacted by a teacher.
2) To create a basis for promotion to a higher class or grade.
3) To confirm the acquisition of knowledge, skill and insight, which serve as a basis for the certification award for proficiency.
The Exam Committee comprises teaching and non-teaching staff appointed by the school’s principal. It is also empowered to make policy decisions regarding how the examination will be conducted and who should be involved. They are to decide based on terms of reference given to them by the MOE where the test should be conducted for greater effectiveness, comfort and convenience of both the students and the proposed invigilators. They are expected to keep up high moral and academic standards.
