I have no idea for that CGPA system, well all the score come from marking scheme, who ever have a look on actual marking scheme before? Fine, we study, we memorized and re-write all the same things in the mind on the paper, as long as the keyword was there, u score the mark. OK, at industry training, for Information System Engineering field, students was recruited, form a team with 11 members, even the job position was assigned based on the undergraduate CGPA, u got first class honor with the highest CGPA among the team members, u become Project Manager, divided by 2 teams, 1 team 5 members and another team 6 members, each team 1 Project Manager, following second highest CGPA member become designer for each team, the others lower CGPA members assigned as programmers, ok, never mind, it make sense of Project Manager and Designer need smart people, but do not make sense programmer do not need smart people too right? Thats why the whole project fxxk up, well, Project Manager could said, "it all programmers fault." WTF? because they are low CGPA, sure poor performance, so it was caused by them.
So, what do u have see from this?
Highest CGPA means, if got mistake of whatever failure happen, the finger always point to the lower CGPA holders.
Is ur fault becos u low CGPA, u r "low class", high class is logically won't make those mistake. LOL
So far, I only saw a lot of malaysia job vacancies talk about CGPA, from jobstreet, sg job is almost talk about experience, the minimum with 1 year experience. Fine, fresh graduate job for sg citizen not mention about grade too, I wonder do I make mistake on this? I do research from jobsjen, jobsdb, monster, & jobstreet.
Well, Final Year Project & Industrial Training is consider as experience as well, but not related to how long the time involve in the field, but it do have it purpose, but if ur industrial training is doing a task as office boy who do photocopy and file arrangement, bug tester, file delivery, then it is no experience value at all. Final year project, this is the solid document to impress the employer with ur ability, no doubt, but they are still a lot local employer with CGPA mindset, LOL, fine, good luck for them.
wow... calm down 1st...
y dun u oso "memorized and re-write all the same things in the mind on the paper"..? Put less effort on memorizing it?
memorizing is juz a part from the "Scoring system", in IT field, technical skills and good understading in programming cannot b "memorized"..
there is no standard to judge one's ability who's fresh from a Uni or college and its juz CGPA and internship experience that he gain..
Final Year Project is not reli as important as ur thinking, and its mostly not taken much in consideration because there are a lot of ppl outside juz copy 95% of the work from friends who's from diffrent uni or college or even can pay someone to done it.. who will know izzit ur work right?
if u were the boss next time, how u gone choose btw a dude wif 2.0 CGPA and 3.8 CGPA wif same experience and skills?
which u will take a look at their resume and ask for interivew 1st? its very obvious right?
