I have seen senior teachers without masters... but if you really want to progress beyond that, the knowledge that comes with the masters will come in handy... and also the network the you form...

Many people view masters as an opportunity to get more knowledge... while it is true... i think more importantly, the process of learning how to think and approach a problem is more impt...

I assume itís hard to get into the BA scheme unless I did well (thereís no IGP for the course in terms of poly GPA so I canít compare either).

If I were to pursue DipEd, Iíd like to be an arts teacher. Anyone has any info in terms of salary for that?

Thanks!
Sorry to burst your bubble. These days, it's extremely hard to get into MOE to be a teacher if your academic results are not stellar.

There is excess teachers. Your DipEd comes in handy for MOE Kindergarten though.

Thank you for your advice. As I am applying for a part time master, but some others told me it's useless, hence, dilemma

I donít think you should pursue a masters for the sole purpose of career progression because it is more likely that you will be disappointed. Pursue it because you have genuine interest in that area of specialisation and how it can help you better in your work. Because if it canít, then quite likely whether you have a masters or not, there wonít be a difference.

I have some very straightforward questions about this.

Based on what I've heard, major significant mistakes usually warrant a D while minor significant ones warrant a C-.

However, since it is a must for every school to dish out at least a few C-, does this mean that:

1. Performance grades in a school are based on a bell-curve? Also, for grade C, how many different segregations of performance are there (e.g. is it 1.25/1.5/1.75?)?

2. If you're in a "chiong" school, simply doing the bare satisfactory minimum (no significant mistakes made) may also warrant a C- because others are seen to be performing better?

3. Has there been any past cases where an individual felt that the given grade was unfair or poorly justified, and tried to dispute?

Thank you

So, not true.
Your schoolís ranking panel cmi Or you simply wow everyone and rocketed your way to B...using whatever methods unknown to humankind. It is definitely not a norm for a C- to go to B the next ranking. Mind sharing why you got C-? That might shed some light.
