My son asked.
Science of course!
He said I was the one who said I would have done better if I had been allowed to go to Arts Stream when I was getting into Form Four. True. When I was in Form Three, I went up to my headmaster and insisted that I want to go to Arts Stream because I was only good in subjects like Biology, Geography and anything that needs me to write and not count. Physics, Chemistry and Add Maths, I get telor. I failed Adds Maths and got some P7 for Fizik and Kimia (Physic and Chemistry). Even I was 15 years old, I know my strong and weak points but the guru besar ordered I go to Science stream. At that time, we studied in Bahasa Malaysia. So I ended up being the stupid one who cannot grasped Add Maths, cannot count momentum, cannot calculate those Kimia etc etc.
Now, the same thing happened.
My eldest son’s result wasn’t that good and he barely made it to Science stream and was supposed to go for Accounts. But after talking with all the aunts, uncles and cousins, he applied for Science stream and got it. The reason is most people advised that with Science stream, you have better teachers, better students and if you are going for A-levels or whatever, those subjects are much more ‘valued’.
So, what do you think? If you can go to Science stream, will you choose Arts or Accounts? Is this just our perceptions? Faster tell lah.
