I am aware Cambodia is having the national exams recently, and I want to start a education related thread.
This would make Cambodia equal to Canada and the US. Most highschool students in north America can't do this. No surprise what so ever that a finance university graduate can not do some math questions. Most them take only one one-semester math course. That is it. Most of them just got a pass. Lots of them in North America.One thing that inspire me to start this thread is when I see this question in FB.
If you look at the reply from FB, you will find majority got it wrong, obviously, those response could be from kindergarten that do not know the answer, but if those response are from people that is ready to do their exams, then Cambodian education is in serious trouble.
We have someone comes in for job interview last week, to be a assistance in the fiance department, her CV say she is a university graduate, we gave her some maths question, she doesn't even know you need to do multiplication and division before addition and subtraction.
The whole system is a failure. Rich kids and Kids with connections don't need to study, but get all the break. Unless this stop, cheating will continue because most students don't have money and connection to buy diplomas/ degrees.When the teacher takes bribe, when the cops takes bribe, when the government officials takes bribe, it is teaching the kids of tomorrow it is the right thing to do.
But I don't think they cheated, their view (and some Aussie as well) is there is no need to know, the calculator and computer can take care of these problem.This would make Cambodia equal to Canada and the US. Most highschool students in north America can't do this.
Surprise to me, how did people get pass primary school without knowing trivial things. What I do wonder is if teachers knows these things, or did they also get their job by cheating.No surprise what so ever that a finance university graduate can not do some math questions.
One semester is all you need to learn these, we are not talking about Differentiation or Integration, Complex analysis, etc,Most them take only one one-semester math course. That is it. Most of them just got a pass. Lots of them in North America.
Complex number is actually quite easy. Its applications to the real world is harder.one semester of maths and you will have already learnt by 5x5 matrices(5 dimensions)
partial fractions integration, and intro to 3d calculus and imaginary numbers, but surpisingly yht lecturer did say imaginary numbers is the easiest part of the exam
I think the situation is not as bad as what you think. Well, their salary may be a bit low, but people generally graduate from uni (here in Phnom Penh) can pretty much secure a job without too much troubles these days.Hmmm...!!!! education in Cambodia... no way to improv any time soon.
After graduated become jobless... but job just for some who have relative bring in only.
Some after graduated then working for other job that they never study bofore... who care.
And most of government official get job easily as long as they are graduated from VN and just attached some moneys under the CV....
Oh I'm wrong not some moneys but they have their market price for any positions.
