Some student took to Twitter with news that they would not be writing essays during their Provincial Exams but simply multiple choice instead.
A few students are not happy about the abrupt change in format, one writing “I have an exam tomorrow I didn’t even study for” with the hastag corrupt education and government.
Another cautioning that the change means that the multiple choice portion is worth a greater portion of their entire grade.
But most students who were writing about it on Twitter seemed relieved — with comments like “This strike keeps getting better and better.” and “Hallelujah. Thank you teachers’ strike”
Grade 10 students wrote their English exam this morning, while Grade 11 students write Social Studies this afternoon.
The Education Ministry announced last night the essay portion was being scrapped for today’s exams because of marking concerns.
