In time to come, students could take more examinations on digital devices instead of writing essays by hand, said Education Minister Ong Ye Kung.

His ministry has received positive feedback from students on computer-based writing examinations that were introduced as a pilot in a few subjects, such as mother tongue and literature, he said in Parliament yesterday.

"Students can more readily cut and paste, edit their essays, move paragraphs around. They can be asked to respond to an e-mail, write a blog or social media post, which better reflects real-life situations that students will go through later in life," he said.

But such electronic exams are still some distance away, he added.

"We need to take into account the readiness of schools and students... We should not inadvertently disadvantage students who may not be exposed to computers as much as others."

Mr Ong was responding to five MPs who had asked whether the ministry had plans to introduce electronic exams or marking, and whether it was possible for all GCE exam papers to be marked locally to minimise the risk of scripts being lost in transit.

In my opinion this should only be applicable to students who are in JC level and above or when there are project based work. Young students should learn to write. Over reliance ong on the computer they will not be able to spell correctly since theres auto correct.

You know you can make the students use a program that doesn't have auto-correct right?


That is all.

thats true.but it should always be a mixture of both. dont take the writing away. we dont want our kids to lose their writing and language skills by going fully digital. composition should still be done in written. maths should also be still in written form. ho

Probably in future don’t even need to have schools.
Can study and take exams at home. Just follow the syllabus and timetable. 😃
