Grading Preparation Workshop

They found out what the examiners expected of them. They went through a mock grading. Most importantly, they gave themselves a better chance of passing their grading by attending the Grading Preparation workshop conducted on 24 February 2008 at the National Training Centre.

The course conductors comprising senior examiners put in a lot of effort in highlighting their expectations. They told the 25 participants, among other things, that the judgment for grading and competition was not the same.

For example, a badly clenched fist would cause the performer a 0.1 point in a competition. However, in the grading of grade 2 and higher candidates, the same mistake would be considered as very serious and could result in their failure.

A lot of time was also spent in correcting the common errors made by the participants.

Based on the feedback of the participants, they enjoyed the training and felt that they had a better understanding of what they had to do to pass their grading.

Special mention must be given to Peter Lim who attended the session with eight of his students. This is what we call ‘leading by example’. As Peter had attended similar workshop before, he helped out wherever required.

The course conductors were Steven Soh, Chin Khee Shin, Tan Cheng Hui and Lim Teong Chin. They were assisted by Jimmy Tay.
