    Default Is the education in Singapore stressful for students?

    most rote-learning education system seems to put much stress on their students and thus result in some student suicides. Does that happen in Singapore too?

    Hi all,

    If you're studying in Singapore and are currently free, could you help do this two short surveys? All multiple choice, will take less than 5 minutes in total, thank you!

    Would you like to compare to another First World country in Asia that is Japan?

    Sure, everybody goes to high school (they don't have polytechnics or labor college) but gaining entry into a good high school let alone a prestigious university in their own country is an incredible challenge for most of them.

    History will be re-written that old fart is not a leader to reckon with. Old fart is selfish and only a gangster like him will wants everything to himself, bully and destory anyone who is against him in his pathways.

    Take bull dozed and dispersed of Hillview Ave Est for example. Even after he won back the election he was still not contented but must destoryed and demise them, to satisfy his urge to bully people.

    His wife heart attacked and in coma for many years was a pay for his sins. Karma!

    Singapore kids have no balls for suicides. Depression? Yes. Self-mutilation a.k.a cutting? Yes. But suicide? No. We have got no balls to take the plunge.

    It is too stressful. But when suicides happen, the gahmen usually will spin the story without emphasizing how stressed (and fucked) up our education system is. It will almost always be because of boy/girlfriend problems lah, kena molested by father/mother/teacher lah or kena bullied at school lah. Nothing wrong with our education system, okay?

    In Singapore, it's mandatory to send your child to school unless valid reasons are given for home teaching. Not many cases of approval by MOE, I should guess.

    It is upto the students how much they can absorb burden, but I think suicide is a cowardly act.

    The education system is all right i guess... so many of us when through it... but it is made too competitive by parents who make their children learn all kind of additional lessons and classes because they feel it is good for their kids or because other children are attending those lessons...
