How much is Presiding Examiner Allowance?

Hi,

I was just appointed as PE for National Exam for school for the first time.

I hear that PE get abit more than normal invigilators. What is the amount? Say for 3 weeks of National Exam.

Munchen Im sure most here are already experienced or senior teachers. But can i ask why there is double standards? I have seen HODs and very experienced teachers doing questionable practices like giving out revision papers with exact same exam questions and nobody bats an eyelid. A BT who merely rehashed the entire chapter was warned to be extra careful because he/she might accidentally or indirectly give the impression to students that certain chapters are more important than the rest and that exam matters are so seriois you may be asked to leave the service without question.

View 1: stupid old people hogging up the leadership and teaching appointments. Why block the way for younger, better teachers to rise up the ranks? These people are just cruising along doing the bare minimum instead of actively contributing.

View 2: evil SLs trying to push people from their posts. These people are still doing what's required at their level, so why are they being ousted when they are still capable?

Really goes to show that there's no right and easy answer to all of this.

Just look around many who are slogging hard just to pay monthly bills you will be thankful for whatever you have.

Are you living up to your pay grade? Did you ask your SLs why or what exactly are they unhappy with? To be able to hold on to the apportionment for 7 years with pressure from likely two different Ps, you have lots of determination. What is stopping you from stepping down? You disagree with their judgment? You love what you are doing? You canít bear to give up the salary grade? If conscience is clear, nothing to worry about. If there are shortfalls, work on them or consider making way for others by stepping down.

I can only say that it depends greatly on your SLs and your CEP.
The reality is that there is a bottleneck with increasing number of schools, positions filled and a queue waiting to be appointed. However, it doesnít mean that all hopes are lost.

You have just been appointed this year, so I would say that you can focus on displaying the right attitude and working on meeting above your KRA. After that, slowly take on projects/responsibilities that allow you to show your aptitude. When the time is right, your SL might bring up the topic. The other way is for you to discuss your career development with them. A good indicator would be your perf grade. If you do get As, it will be a good indicator that you are doing things well.
