THE Ministry of Education is currently carrying out a two to three year review of the entire curriculum in Fiji, says Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

He made the comment in response to a question by St Bede’s College Year 13 student Nina Tuiloma┬áduring his first live Facebook budget consultation for the 2019/2020 National Budget yesterday.

Ms Tuiloma had asked Mr Sayed-Khaiyum whether Government could include projects for both Arts and Pure Science students to contribute to their external exam marks .

“We find it unfavorable for students who have projects involved in their subjects such as Agriculture, Technical Drawing, Applied Technology and Computer Studies,” she said.

“This contributes to their external exams causing them to have greater striving marks than we do.”

She also said there was a need for for more qualified people within the Accounting and Science professions.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the points she raised were valuable and would be taken into consideration when they engaged expert curriculum specialist, a number of whom were from overseas.
