Marking Papers

One aspect of teaching life that I cannot escape is marking.  But it can be a bit much when exams are scheduled back-to-back.

I just finished marking for our 1st term exams two weeks ago and last Monday, another batch of papers came in. Our local education dept revived the 'Gerak Gempur', shook the dust off it and renamed it 'Ujian Setara'.  Whatever.  They're all exams.  My heart actually fell right into my stomach when we got the news during a coordinating meeting.

The teachers were horrified.

Wonder how the kids feel about it.
