Results Results Results!

It has been quite a while since we conducted so many tests and I’m sure most of you are dying to know the results of the tests. For records sake, these were the tests being conducted:
 
– Knots (1)
– First Aid (1)
– Map Reading
 
Knots (1) has 2 components; the practical aspect and theory aspect. Most fared well in the practical section but not that well in the theory section where it is a requirement to know what the knots are being used for.
 
Those who passed include (in no order of merit):
Kah Kien
Chen Lu
Hanafi
Desiree
Alessia
Lilian
Alex
Benjamin
 
There are those who just managed to scrape through and will be awarded a pass on probation (PoP). They will be re-tested on their knots sometime later during scout meetings to ensure that they have remembered how to tie and explain:
Xuan Yi
Meiqi
 
The following are those who failed. Retest will be given 2 weeks from now:
Kenneth
 
Map Reading was taken by Ventures Congsong and Weiyuan. The scouts are tested on their reading of MRN, finding locations on the map when given MRN and vice versa, setting a map, and compass bearings. Most did well in their reading of MRNs, but compass bearings might require another lesson to ensure that everyone is clear about the topic.
 
Those who passed include (in no order of merit):
Lilian
Benjamin
Desiree
Meiqi
Alex
Chen Lu
Hanafi
Kah Kien
 
Those who failed as well as those who didn’t get a chance to take the test due to time constraints:
Alessia
Kenneth
Xuanyi
 
For First Aid (1), Scouts were tested on how to pack a first-aid kit, knowledge of the items inside, as well as simple bandaging. Most are unsure of the items inside the kit. There will be a part 2 for First Aid (1) to be conducted by the school’s Red Cross in July.
 
Those who passed include (no order of merit):
Meiqi
Desiree
Kah Kien
Hanafi
Lilian
Alessia
Alex
Kenneth
Xuanyi (PoP)
Chen Lu
Benjamin
 
Retest will be scheduled on 6th July for all those who did not pass as well as those who did not attend the session yesterday. We will also be testing the rest on basic footdrill (1) on this day. Please practice your static drills and some marching before taking the test.
 
Yours-in-Scouting,
