TL;DR – Everything you need to know daily, summarised for you at 5pm.
1) MOE say can use Singlish in compo
According to the Ministry of Education, students will not be penalised if they use Singlish terms “appropriately” i.e. Singlish words should be used only appropriately, usually in direct speech.
For example, a student will not be penalised for writing sentences such as “I have decided to ‘sabo’ my friend and play a nasty prank on him”; or “She is by nature a ‘kiasu’ person and will wake up extra early to queue for the latest release”.
Standard English grammar still has to apply.
