Homework-burning students received PSLE result slips as ashes in urns

Posted on 24 November 2013

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

Sio eh.

Sio eh.

A group of students photographed burning their homework after PSLE exams ended in October this year received their PSLE result slips two days ago as ashes packed in urns.

This after karma is a bitch and teachers thought that it will make a good statement in return.

One teacher, Qin Shi Huang, said: “I was very stressed working as a teacher and so burning the slips can be cathartic.”

“Technically, there is nothing wrong with burning result slips as there is no rule that states that teachers cannot burn the slips.”

“Anyways, everything is computerised already, the physical slips are meaningless.”

And when the dozen or so book-burning students checked their results in the computerised system, they realised they are among the 1,073 who failed PSLE this year.
