SDM Issues Statement With Concerned Questions

Posted On July 29, 2020

In a press release statement issued by SDM earlier today, the student organization expressed great concern regarding on the developing situation of the O’Levels and A’Level Examinations.

SDM gladly expressed that the situation needed the shift of revision classes from physical meetings in classrooms to online. The organization stated that such a shift would not be threatening students’ health and safety.

Yet, SDM had some very pertinent questions to ask regarding the examinations sessions themselves that are to be taking place in a month.

What will happen in the examination sessions next month when hundreds of students will be inside the same venue? What precautions are going to be taken?

Secondly, when will students be given official notice of what will be happening exactly? One has to understand that students have been preparing for these examinations for nearly a year now, and it is only understandable that an inevitable toll on their mental health will be taken given the current situation.

Ultimately, if the COVID-19 situation in the country continues to worsen and health authorities declare new restrictions; is there a plan in place that will not put students at a disadvantage? If yes, SDM demands that this is discussed with interested parties and communicated with all concerned students at the earliest possible time.

SDM expresses their disappointment about how the examination session situation is being handled and they stated that it seems that there is a sense of unpreparedness should restrictions be enforced once more and that students must be advised accordingly and urgently.

Should students have any concerns or questions they are encouraged to contact either our Facebook Page or email us on sdm.covidconcerns@gmail.com
