The National Examinations

Since last Monday, 16 April, my son Virya has been facing examination organized by his school i.e a private elementary school in Pondok Indah, South Jakarta.

Today is the last day of said examination, and I am sure that Virya is very happy about it, this is shown on his bright face when I drove him to school this morning.

He has every reasons to be happy because he could temporarily rest and relax from from studying very hard every day to prepare for the said exams.

But, this rest and relax is only temporarily because Virya still has to study hard to prepare for the National Examination next May.

The legal basis for the National Examinations is the National Education System Law No 23/2003, Article 58, which stipulated that evaluation of Students and Education Units and Programs should be carried out periodically, generally, transparently and systemically by an independent institution. The purpose is to achieve national standard qualifications.
 
Implementation of this law regulated by Government Regulation No. 19/2005 regarding Standard Education System, Articles 63, 66, 69.
 
The problem is that the implementation of the the National Examination doesn't seems to be smooth. This can be seen from the fact that every year i.e. before and during the National Examinations, the news media have been reporting about problems arising, among others about the leak of some exam materials, about eligibility of participants etc.

Considering the fact that good standard quality education is very important for the development of our nation, I hope that the government would make sure that the National Examination would be carried out properly and smoothly in the future.

Hi Harry, I have seen how stressed students get over the exams and how hard they are trying to get the best result. I hope your son gets the results he needs. If there are questions in the future regarding his English, let me know.

This time of year young people in many parts of the world are suffering from similar stress-factors :(. Therefore they should be entitled to well organized exams. It's a shame if that isn't the case yet.

Yet I hope ( and think) your son will pass gloriously. My congratulations to him and to you in advance :).
