The Ministry of Education said that the change is to allow each student to focus on his or her learning progress and discourage them from being overly concerned about comparisons. Teachers will continue to gather information about pupils’ learning through discussions, homework and quizzes.

For older students in primary schools and secondary schools, marks for each subject will be rounded off and presented as a whole number.
