10% more straight “A”s in UPSR – so what?

The UPSR results came in today, and it seems like our students are getting smarter.

PUTRAJAYA: A total of 48,327 or 10.02% of 482,334 UPSR candidates this year obtained all As.

The percentage is higher than the 9.51% recorded last year.

Education director-general Datuk Abdul Ghafar Mahmud said this was the best achievement in four years based on the national average grade, the index used in measuring the achievement of school examination candidates nationwide.

The cynic in me can’t help but wonder whether our students have gotten better or is it because the exams were easier.

Sure looks good in an election year ahead to be able to claim that the Government is doing a good job in the Ministry of Education.
