Finally after months of waiting the official format for PT3 is here. I can only comment on the English paper format. It is almost the same as the one leaked previously. Except with a few twist. For one thing, the sample for section B which is information transfer is easier for the student versus the leaked sample. As it follows what is usually is in the text book. Another thing I noticed is the inclusion of a small section for poems and novels. Many teachers have spoken about the exclusion of literature in the leaked version.

The number of essay have also came down. If looking at the leaked sample there is a total of 3 writing tasks (50 words, 100 words and 150-200 words essay). The official format only have a 50 words short response essay, and another 120-150 words essay in section D.

All I can say that is I’m quite happy with the format. Not many repetitive task as compared with the leaked version.

Full Inspectorate

Last week the School Inspectorate camped at our school for one whole week. They came here to do a full inspection on the school. The reason is because we have been an under-achieving school for a number of years already. They were here trying to help us get back on our feet.
I was observed twice, once for English and another one for P.E was expecting somebody to come in and observe me during Biology but that never happened. Got good inputs from them, especially for English. She commented that I need to play a bit with my deep “sexy” voice and to use the board more often. :p Yeah I know my voice is a bit deep so sometimes the students can’t hear me that well.
All in all it was a good experience, the last time I was observed was when I was doing my practicum, and I do welcome the feedback that they had given me 🙂
