CAMBRIDGE PLACEMENT TEST FOR ENGLISH TEACHERS IN SCHOOL

All the English teachers nationwide were forced (read: we had no choice) by the ministry to sit for the Cambridge Placement Test (CPT). My colleagues and I did just that this afternoon. It was an online test. Luckily the website was functional better after 2:00 p.m. (we were there in the library at 12:30 p.m.) and we had successfully gone through the agony. However, we were not told of the results of the test. Maybe the people from the ministry will be announcing our performance in a press conference. I will be VERY surprised if it is going to be good news as the 20-minute test was so dam* difficult.

If the ministry is going to send teachers overseas based on the bad results, pray that one of the unlucky persons will be me.
