A parcel containing 238 GCE ‘A’ Level Chemistry Paper 3 scripts from last year’s examinations held in Singapore were stolen from a courier van in Britain.
The Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) said the affected students were given final grades based on their performance in other parts of the Chemistry exam as well as their cohort’s overall performance. The students also have the option to resit Paper 3.
A Nanyang Junior College student who left one-third of his Chemistry Paper 3 blank is cheering the fact that his answer script was stolen and he ended up with an A.
However, some students are unhappy with the overall grade they received and are considering resitting the paper.
Chemistry Paper 3 carries 35 per cent of the marks for the subject.
