Unfair GSAT policy
THE EDITOR, Sir:
This is an open letter to the Minister of Education regarding an unfair GSAT policy.
My child entered primary school at Grade 6 in September 2015 from school overseas.
We (his parents) were advised that the Grade 4 assessment is a pre-requisite for sitting the GSAT exam, however he has not been allowed to sit the Grade 4 assessment nor been granted an exemption.
If Grade 4 assessment is a pre-requisite then the option to sit the exam should be made available to the student and to any other student in the future.
I am using this medium to ask for your intervention to resolve this issue before the next GSAT exam sitting.
