Menghadapi Peperiksaan?

Suka menghadapi peperiksaan? Tanyalah pada setiap pelajar, saya pasti jawapannya tidak kerana menjelang peperiksaan dianggap saat menyeksakan bukan saja terpaksa mengulang kaji pelajaran tapi perlu memastikan kejayaan dalam genggaman.

Malangnya, setiap pelajar di negara ini tidak boleh mengelak daripada menghadapinya. Ia bukan saja sebagai medan ujian untuk menentukan pencapaian seseorang tapi penentu sama ada berjaya atau tidak meneruskan pengajian ke institusi pengajian tinggi.

Kenapa mesti menghadapi peperiksaan? Tidak bolehkah pencapaian pembelajaran seseorang hanya dinilai ketika di sekolah?

Sistem peperiksaan walaupun tidak disukai, sebenarnya satu mekanisme terpenting untuk menjana kecemerlangan pelajar dalam akademik.

Melaluinya, penilaian boleh dinilai sama ada pelajar itu berjaya mengikuti sesi pembelajaran di sekolah atau tidak, melihat keupayaan dalam menerima arahan dan sebagainya.

Kerana itu, peperiksaan diiktiraf sebagai elemen terpenting dalam industri pendidikan negara walaupun tidak dinafikan di sesetengah negara, peperiksaan terutama bertulis tidak terlalu dititik beratkan.

Peperiksaan juga antara platform terbaik menentukan pencapaian dan pemahaman pelajar. Melalui peperiksaan, prestasi setiap daripada mereka dinilai seterusnya menentukan kedudukan dalam darjah mahupun melanjutkan pengajian.

Jika kurang memuaskan, pelajar boleh menjadikan keputusan peperiksaan sebagai rujukan supaya lebih berusaha sekali gus menyediakan garis panduan untuk menjadi cemerlang.

Pada masa sama, peperiksaan mendorong pelajar supaya lebih rajin mentelaah dan menjana kemampuan berfikir, menghafal, menulis dan memahami.

Untuk tujuan itu, setiap guru bertanggungjawab dalam memastikan setiap pencapaian pelajar. Kalau mereka lemah, perlu tahu apa sebabnya dan jika cemerlang, patut menggunakan pendekatan itu untuk pelajar lain.

Jika pelajar bermasalah, perlu tahu bagaimana mahu mengatasinya sejak awal bagi memastikan apabila menjelang peperiksaan, mereka sekurang-kurangnya mampu lulus melepasi tahap ditentukan walaupun bukan cemerlang.

Sistem yang dilaksanakan kini menuju ke arah Pentaksiran Berasaskan Sekolah (PBS). Melalui sistem ini pelajar ditaksir sendiri guru sekali gus mampu menilai setakat mana kemampuan mereka.

Ia juga dapat memberitahu guru mengenai kumpulan pelajar sasaran yang perlu diperbaiki seterusnya membantu meningkatkan pencapaian mereka.

Perhubungan dua hala mampu diwujudkan dan sistem pembelajaran boleh dijalankan dengan lancar kerana ada interaksi antara guru dan pelajar. Sekiranya bermasalah, boleh diperbaiki kerana pada masa sama pelajar memperoleh sokongan moral daripada guru.

Dunia peperiksaan sebenarnya merangkumi disiplin penting yang harus diberi perhatian khusus bukan saja oleh pelajar tapi juga guru. Ia mengajar seseorang supaya mementingkan tahap kebajikan, kesihatan, kecacatan, latar belakang keluarga hingga persekitaran. Semua perlu diambil perhatian sebelum menduduki peperiksaan.

Justeru, pelajar tidak harus gentar dengan peperiksaan. Ia satu wadah menjadikan seseorang lebih bijak dan bertanggungjawab dengan diri sendiri.

Peperiksaan adalah tahap meningkatkan keupayaan diri untuk berjaya sekali gus memberi kesan kepada sosio ekonomi dan kebanggaan negara.

Pelajar juga dapat membalas jasa ibu bapa dan guru jika berjaya dengan cemerlang.

Human Resource Memo

To all Employees:

Effective TODAY

Dress Code

1. It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary. If we see you wearing Prada shoes and
carrying a Gucci bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a pay raise.

2. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and
therefore you do not need a pay raise.

3. If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a pay raise.


Sick Days

We will no longer accept a doctor's certificate as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.


Holidays

Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday & Sunday.


Compassionate Leave

This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend to the arrangements.

In rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon.
We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early.


Toilet Use

1. Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the cubicles.

2. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the cubicle door will open, and your picture will be taken.

3. After your second offence, your picture will be posted on the company notice board under the 'Chronic Offenders'category.

4. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sanctioned under the company's mental health policy.


Lunch Break

1. Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more so that they can look healthy.

2. Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure.

3. Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast.


Thank you for your loyalty to our company. Remember we are an employer of choice and we are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed elsewhere.

How Smart is Your Right Foot?

It's true! I've tried it!

This is so funny that it will boggle your mind. And you will keep trying at least 50 more times to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't.


1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand.

Your foot will change direction. I told you so .....and there's nothing you can do about it.

Pass this on to your friends...

3 Great Management Lessons for Malaysian Government Servants

Lesson 1

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?" The eagle answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.


Lesson 2

A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but haven't got the energy." "Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients." The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

Moral of the story:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there!

- well, that turkey reminds me of one government servant who gets to the top post through ass-licking and bullshitting. And to my surprise, she's still up there, bullshitting and doing nothing day-in and day-out! Anyway, it's Bolehland; where abnormalities are normal...


Lesson 3

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Moral of the story:
(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.

(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.


(3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

Test for Dementia

It's that time of year to take our annual senior citizen test.

Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you lose it! Below is a very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence.

Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.

OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.







1. What do you put in a toaster?
(Don't Scroll down until you have an answer)
















Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast,' give up now and do something else. Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, bread, go to Question 2.







2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?
(Don't Scroll down until you have an answer)














Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't

attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading a more appropriate literature such as Auto World. However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3.







3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?
(Don't Scroll down until you have an answer)

















Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading these???

If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4.










4. It's twenty years ago, and a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany (If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Ger many and East Germany .) Anyway, during the flight, TWO engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately the engine fails before he can do so and the plane fatally crashes smack in the middle of 'no man's land' between East Germany and West Germany . Where would you bury the survivors? East Germany, West Germany, or no man's land'?
(Don't Scroll down until you have an answer)























Answer: You don't bury survivors.

If you said ANYTHING else, you're a dunce and you must stop. If you said, 'You don't bury survivors', proceed to the next question.




5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales . In London , 17 people get on the bus; In Reading , six people get off the bus and nine people get on. In Swindon , two people get off and four get on In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea , three people get off and five people get on In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. What was t he name of the bus driver?
(Don't Scroll down until you have an answer)

























Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!

Don't you remember your own name? It was YOU!!










Now pass this along to all your friends and pray they do better than you.

PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!!

New insertion for 2009 Oxford Dictionary

badawi [baa-daa-wee] (Transitive verb/Noun/Adjective): To start something full of promise but end in disappointment, failure and/or disaster.

Eg:

'I'm trusting you to perform this task well; don't do a badawi, ok?'

'Whatever I do, I will always find a way to badawise it.'

France badawied their Euro 2008 campaign. England pre-badawied theirs, while Italy were guilty of over-badawification.

The future of Air Asia Airline: The truth about budget airline...

Ah Beng and Numbers

You might like it. This is hilarious.....even an Englishman could not construct sentences using numeric, which is exclusive only to Malaysians and Singaporeans.


Ah Beng was asked to make a sentence using 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Not only did he do it 1 to 10, he did it again from 10 back to 1. This is what he came up with.....

1 day I go 2 climb a 3 outside a house to peep. But the couple saw me, so I panic and 4 down. The man rushed out and wanted to 5 with me. I ran until I fell 6 and threw up. So I go into 7-eleven and grabbed some 8 to throw at him. Then I took a 9 and try to stab at him. 10 God he run away.

10 I put the 9 back and pay for the 8 and left 7-eleven. Next day I called my boss and told him I was 6. He said 5, tomorrow also no need to come back 4 work. He also asked me to go climb a 3 and jump down. I don't understand. I am so nice 2 him but I don't know what he 1.
