This sounds like a bunch of excuses and jabber, but I guess we'll know when the scores come out in the summer.

I think this is a good and logical thing to do. Public funds to schools should be based on results achieved. Otherwise it would be a waste of public money.

I agree, it also forces the head of schools to sack feminist teachers who feminize boys and take away their masculine determination to earn marks and their competitiveness.

funny how they try to bribe the kids to get them to do well. If they do good they don't have to take semester exams.

As a high school student I can tell u they arnt bribing us. If anything it's been a threat. We were told that if we do not meet a west test score extra classes will be assigned to us in that subject.

No its not a threat! It's practicality, son!
If you don't meet your exams, and do poorly, then you will have to take the test to meet requirements! And it's used to give you a drive, to do your best!

It's in no way a bad thing, Or a threat!

I disagree the West Test is a test to see if the children are being taught anything. Our school systems today need to test and evaluate the management and teachers not the students. You have to have a foundation to build a house and our students are not getting that foundation.
The teachers teach the West Test not the basics that children need to build on. I would like to know what kind of future there is out there for our WEST TEST educated children.

The students should do their lessons acquired to them, rather than any other tests. But if they fail lessons, then they should do the tests.

Insulting feminists is a strong sign of rightiousness! You aren't here to say what is misogyny, son!
