Next week in the CA1 week. So, how does the lesson before the exam looks like? No prize for guessing but it is going through practice paper. I go into the class and knowing that this is not going to help my students really that much. But, I still fall into the trap of doing so. Why? Because going through practice paper is the unspoken must-do. Parent will likely to feedback, HODs will question why practice paper is not done.
Practice paper only prepare the students for exams and do not prepare them for life. So, why are we still doing this? That brings me to the next question. Is our current assessment system future-ready or past-compatible?
