In September 2018, the Singapore Education Ministry (MOE) had declared that the mid-year exams for students of Primary 3 and 5 and for secondary 1 and 3 will be scrapped by 2021. However, as per the education minister more than half of the primary schools and over 90% of secondary schools will scrap off mid-year examination for some levels a year ahead of schedule

This initiative will bring forth a balance between joy of learning and education standards.
