Exam time

written on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 3:29am

You wouldn't hear grumbling tummies during exam time here, as students are allowed to bring food and drinks into the exam halls. Food wrappers are to be the 'noiseless' types, and students are not to make noise while eating to respect other students. I had a discussion with some of my PhD friends from Malaysia, who are mostly academicians, on this matter. I asked whether this is practiced in our universities. The answer was a complete "Not at all!" The reasons being, our students in Malaysia will write the answers on the bottle labels, food labels etc.How can we build trust in our future leaders if trust is not build early on during their studying years? And to think that Malaysia is an Islamic, as well as religious-based society? I hope my fellow friends here can observe this and bring back these values in their academe, besides achieving flying colors in their studies.
