“Do we need such a provocative article for a Secondary 1 Geography examination? end of the year examination for this year. To teach the younger generations hatred against our neighbour!” He questions on the worldwide web.
This picture of reflects the question paper final examination question paper of Sec 1 students. According to SG Huffe Singapore news, “Citing an article adapted from the Asia Times, the test asks students to explain what imported water is, to describe the issues Singapore faces with imported water, to provide one advantage of imported water and to explain a method with which Singapore ensures it has sufficient water.”
