    I THINK THESE GCE O/L AND GCE A/L SYLLABUSES SHOULD BE CHANGED TO TECHNICALLY ORIENTED PRACTICAL EXAMS..... WE DON'T WANT PARROTS. eg. LEARNING TO COOK IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN KNOWING THE BOILING POINT OF LIQUIDS AND THE HEAT GENERATED BY A GAS COOKER.

    The boiling point is not necessary for dumb idiots. Those who have functioning brains can learn theoretical material. Otherwise we will produce only house maids and laborers. Well done children! Keep up the good work.

    The objective is to face the existing system and do the best, we congratulate them first for facing the present challenge. The children with less results, can choose their ways to perform better in future differently.
