You can agree with this or not, but the Indian education system is flawed. It gives more importance to grades and marks than knowledge. Mugging and rote learning have always been the prefered tools to score more marks, instead of actual learning and understanding of what is being taught. 

But, Singapore is all set to bring a much-needed change in its education system and the whole world needs to learn something from them.

From writing on your palms, using a transparent ink pen, hiding chits in your shoes, playing dumb charades inside the exam hall to help your friend, mugging syllabus overnight, begging teachers for extra marks, counted and recounted marks in hopes that the numbers will magically increase, we've all been there and done that.

Singapore's Education Minister Ong Ye Kung has announced that from next year onwards, report cards will not indicate student rankings. 

According to a report by the WEF (World Economic Forum), Singapore is trying to bring a change in their education system, wherein marks will be replaced by homework, quizzes and discussions, as the preferred methods to evaluate a student's performance.

What's more, exams for students of classes 1st and 2nd will be abolished. In the report it's mentioned, "Older primary and secondary students will also study in a less competitive environment. Marks for each subject will be rounded off to the nearest whole number — without decimal places — to lower the emphasis on academic success." 

The ministry wants students to focus on their learning progress instead of being overly concerned about comparisons.

While, we will continue to pressurize ourselves for IITs, IIMs and other kids to score good grades starting class 1st; Singapore has decided to play a role model for other nations with the latest reform in their education system.
